The GAERF 2011 Student Design Competition invites students to be creative by taking their original design from concept to finished product as they review the contents of the eight main sections of graphicCOMMcentral.org: DISCOVER, DECIDE, LEARN, EMPLOY, INVESTIGATE, MEET, INFORM, and PRINT GREEN, choose one section to promote, and design two marketing pieces to drive traffic to that section of the website.
The competition is open to all students attending secondary or post-secondary institutions in the continental United States who are studying in a graphic communications/printing, advertising, graphic design or interactive media program. Entries are due by June 15, 2011, and those submissions selected by GAERF will be judged by industry professionals who maintain the graphicCOMMcentral.org website
First place winners and their instructors will receive two-day all expenses paid trips to attend GRAPH EXPO in Chicago, IL. In addition, the students will receive $2,000 awards presented during GRAPH EXPO 2011’s Career Awareness Day, September 14, 2011. Second place winners will be awarded $1,500, and the third place winners will receive $1,000.
