The Visual Art & Design Department invites Salt Lake Community College students to participate in a poster design contest announcing the 
2018 SLCC Student Art Showcase.

This contest is open to all currently enrolled SLCC and SLCC Concurrent Enrollment students. 
(Professionals or instructors are not eligible. Entrants must be able to verify student status.) The winning poster design will be used to promote the 2018 SLCC Student Art Showcase on campus as well as other venues and media. In addition, a cash award of $200 will be given to the winner.

Only 1 SUBMISSION PER STUDENT will be accepted. The SLCC Student Art Showcase Committee reserves the right to accept or reject any entry. The student winner may be asked to alter elements of the design for all the various art show applications as needed.

Poster contest submissions will be hung in display cases located on the second floor, north end of the SLCC South City from FEBRUARY 8 through 16.
The SLCC Student Art Showcase Committee will make final determination as to winning entry.


REQUIRED SPECIFICATIONS for poster design contest:

Document Setup: Tabloid 11 x 17 inches (tall) output at 100%. Set top, left and right margins at .375 inch. The bottom margin should be set at 1.5 inches. This will allow a white border around the design. Full bleed posters will not be accepted.

File Format: File should be created in either Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator ONLY. Adobe Photoshop may only be used to alter photos or create effects. Type works best in InDesign or Illustrator.

NO STOCK PHOTOS. NO PUBLIC DOMAIN PHOTOS. If more than one SLCC student works on the poster, all must be credited and all must share in the winnings if chosen.
