Announcing The Very Official IR16 Design Competition

Wouldn’t you like a cool IR16 conference T-shirt–you know, to wear on the beach at your next conference in Kauai, San Francisco, Fukuoka, Seattle, , or… Philadelphia? Us too! Unfortunately, our design sense
is stuck in some unidentifiable decade on another unidentifiable planet. Which is where you come in…

If you are handy with Illustrator (or with colored pencils), you may very well be the designer of our next T-shirt. Submit your art by June 30th, as an attachment to ir16 at aoir dot org, and we will choose a winner.*

What does the winner get? Funny you should ask. First, immeasurable glory and the deep admiration of their peers, many of whom will be wearing an original design of your own making (please do not include any images you do not have the rights to, and use no more than three colors). Second, an awesome T-shirt in the size of your choosing. Third, some undisclosed gift; the most I can disclose is that it will not be very large in size or very valuable, except in the thought-counting way.

What do we get? Rights to produce your design on T-shirts, and sell them to IR16 attendees.

If you have any questions, please direct them to your conference hosts at ir16 at aoir dot org

*Disclosure: Yes, we fully recognize that design competitions and spec work generally devalue the significant creative energy and time that design requires. Were we planning on profiting from your work, it would easily be considered exploitative. Instead, we hope that your contribution will be in the spirit of AoIR: a volunteer organization.
