Enter by Friday, June 21st at 5:00PM EST


School’s over, and especially if you’ve graduated, the last thing on your mind is more student work but before you forget the academic year altogether, make sure you enter our SPD-U Show & Tell Competition. Forget rules and forget formulas; just show us your best editorial design. Formerly known as the SPD-U Spotlight Competition, winners have gone on to work at publications such as The New York Times Magazine, Glamour, Men’s Health, Vice, and Esquire.

If your work is chosen by our jury of top-notch editorial design professionals, you’ll receive an awards certificate and we’ll showcase your work in an exclusive online gallery. It’s a great way to get your name and work in front of the entire SPD audience, which includes art directors with the power to hire fresh, young talent like yourself.

*Who's Mitch Shostak?
Our top prize is given to honor Mitch Shostak, a dear and dedicated friend of SPD who passed away on June 25, 2014. The former SPD board member had worked at numerous publications before opening Shostak Studios in 1993 where he continued to produce volumes of work for a number of clients. Mitch was widely respected as one of the country's leading publication designers. Committed and passionate in his teaching at the School of Visual Arts and mentoring in his own design studio, Mitch inspired his peers as well as many new generations of designers and art directors. We dedicate our top Student Design Competition prize to him in remembrance of his life and work. 

Thanks so much to SVA for offering housing to our top 3 winners in NYC this summer!
