Conference Logo Contest

Each year, we have a contest to design the logo that goes out to regional members over social media and our website, announcing the upcoming annual conference. This gives the illustrator a chance to have their work highlighted.

This year's theme is From 25 and Still We R{ev}ise. Deadline for submission is November 14, 2017. The winner will be announced around November 30.

GUIDELINES:
 
Requirements: You must be a current SCBWI member living in MD/DE/WV to enter.

Theme: Our Conference this year is named “25 and Still We R{ev}ise.” Use your imagination to create an image that exemplifies this theme idea.

Text: Please leave space for the text “25 and Still We R{ev}ise” MD/DE/WV SCBWI, March 17-18, 2018. If you are a designer, feel free to include typography in your submission, but please be prepared to supply an illustration without text as well.

Layout: The size is 8×5.5 . Your illustration may be larger but will need to proportionally fit 8.5.5 when reduced. Illustration needs to be provided at 300 dpi high resolution at 8×5.5 size in jpg or pdf vertical formats. Please note that the format should ONLY be vertical. (This is a change from last year).

To Submit: Email submission as jpg or pdf attachment to Rebecca Evans at mddewv-ic@scbwi.org no later than November 14, 2016. Include your name and contact information in the email, but not the attachment, to be forwarded anonymously to the judging committee.
