2011 Student Design Competition: The Rules It's official: our 2011 Student Design Competition is now open. Entries are due Monday, March 7th, 2011 at 5pm.

Read on for this year's instructions and categories, and find out more juicy details here. We'll also have a PDF with the same rules that follow available for download in the next few weeks.  

How to Enter:

Select a project from one of the five categories described below.

• Each page measures 8" wide x 10" high, so a spread is 16" wide x 10" high.
• Original photography or illustration is not required, but welcome if appropriate.
• You may enter more than one design in the same or different categories.

Submissions must be approved by a design professor or teacher. Each student may
submit a maximum of five entries. Prepare either printed material or electronic files as follows:
• Printed Material: Full-size spreads, not reduced copies. Do not mount the work to any type of board. Staple the spreads together in the upper left-hand corner. Tape a copy of your completed entry form to the back of each submission. (NOTE: Slides will NOT be accepted).
• Electronic PDF: You must include your name somewhere on each spread in 4pt type. Burn all submissions to a CD. Entries should be full-size spreads, print-quality 300 dpi PDF files (all fonts embedded). It is ok to put multiple entries on one CD. Include a printed copy of the entry form for each entry. Mark clearly the name of the school & student last name(s) on CD.
