Students, Get Creative in the APSCU Logo Design Contest

Students, the Association of Private Sector Colleges and Universities (APSCU) is offering you an opportunity to get creative and earn some money for it. If you know you’re going to have some free time during this Thanksgiving weekend, plan to spend it designing a logo to represent the Association, and you could win $500 in APSCU’s logo design contest. The theme of the logo contest is “Working Proud.”

The APSCU logo design contest is held to give students an opportunity to receive professional recognition for their work. The winning logo will be used as the official symbol of the 2012 APSCU Convention & Exposition, being held June 20-22, 2012, at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV (the logo does not need to reference the convention). The logo will be used throughout the Convention’s promotional campaign in printed pieces, onsite signage, official Convention website and social media outlets.

The grand prize of $500 will be awarded for the winning entry and $250 for second place.

Here are the logo contest rules according to APSCU’s website:
  • “Must be original art created by a student enrolled in an APSCU member college. Limit three submissions per campus. (We ask the college to put forth the three best entries from their students’ work only.)
  • The facts about the convention, as noted above, do not have to be incorporated into the artwork.
  • Submissions must be able to reproduce. Any text that may be included as part of the logo should be legible at a minimum of 125 pixels wide.
  • The convention committee will judge the submissions and make the final selections.
  • Artwork should be emailed in a JPEG format and should be saved with the author’s name and school (i.e. John Smith-ABC College). The winning logo will also need to be supplied to APSCU in an .eps format.
  • The originator of the winning artwork will be required to sign a release form to have the work published as the official convention logo.”

The contest entry deadline is November 30th at 5:00 PM EST. Check out APSCU’s website for further details about how to submit your entry.

Good luck!
