Get in the SPD-U Spotlight! Enter Your Designs by June 2
UPDATE: We just extended the deadline to Friday, June 6, 2014! Sorry, this year's Spotlight is now closed to entries. All winners will be notified by July 1 and will be displayed here on the blog in the weeks to follow.

The 2013-2014 academic year is coming to a close soon and you'll be finishing up a bunch of awesome projects ... don't let them just gather dust once the grades are in, share them with us!  We want to see what you've been up to! If you've created any type of editorial design work in the past year, enter it in our 2014 SPD-U Spotlight Juried Online Gallery

Whether it's a magazine project from your design class, a newsletter design you did for your fraternity, work you did on your school's newspaper, yearbook or literary mag, etc ... if it's any type of editorial design, we'd love to see it! Forget rules, forget formulas -- just show us the best stuff you have. 

If your work is chosen by our jury of top-notch editorial design professionals, we'll showcase it in an exclusive online gallery here on the SPD website with links to your portfolio website. It's a great way to get your name and work in front of magazine art directors with the power to hire fresh, young talent like yourself. All the rules and details after the jump...
