Restore America Poster Design Competition

The American Civil Liberties Union is presenting the Restore America Poster Design Competition, which is open to all designers across the country:

The ACLU (National) is challenging designers to “design a poster that depicts the transformation of America into a country that holds its leaders accountable; that strives to restore eroded civil liberties; that works to change policies that are unconstitutional.”

The winner will receive a $500 cash prize, and will have their design featured as part of the ACLU’s national campaign. Additionally, the ACLU intends to hold an event in Washington DC in January featuring the top designs.

Entries are due by Sunday, January 4, 2009. Full details about the competition are available on the ACLU’s Restore America website.

Leave Your Mark on the Rockies

Well, not the mountains. The awards.

The Boise Advertising Federation is looking to redesign the Rockie Awards, and they’ve opened up the design competition to anyone who’s willing to take a swing at it.

There are a few guidelines:

  • Both Gold and Silver Rockies must be designed. On average, the BAF gives out 15 Golds and 115 Silvers each year.
  • Awards must be able to be sourced and reproduced annually with relative ease.
  • Each Rockies award given out is personalized with: agency name, client, category, year and “Idaho Advertising Federation”. Please consider this in all designs.
  • Cost to produce each award must be under $20. Please consider this when recommending materials.

You can submit as many designs as you’d like, and submissions should be sent, in PDF format, to Robbin Gibson.

The deadline for submissions is December 1st.

Yes, this information originally came out in an email from the Boise Advertising Federation, but for those who may not have gotten the email or are not subscribed, it’s worth repeating here.
