COMPETITIONS Badges are Back

Back by popular demand: the conference badge competition! Showcase your creative talent by designing a SCBWI badge and be in with a chance to see your badge on sale at November’s conference.

The winner will also receive a full set of the 2018 badges while the runner-up will receive a half-set.

What you need to do

Design a circular badge (please ensure there’s a generous bleed in your artwork).

Include the SCBWI logo (below).

All entries MUST include the logo.

Send your entry to no later than midnight on Saturday 1st September

You don’t need to attend the conference to enter – but you do need to be a paid-up SCBWI member.

Stuck for ideas? Check out the 2014 winners (above in the featured image).

Have a great slogan but no artistic skills? Or are you an illustrator struggling for ideas? Why not team up with another SCBWI member? (Put a ‘shout out’ on the Facebook page or ask around your regional network.)

Writers - if you can’t find anyone to illustrate, you can enter a maximum of two slogans and we will try to find someone.

No comments:

We love comments and really appreciate the time it takes to leave one.
Interesting and pithy reactions to a post are brilliant but we also LOVE it when people just say they've read and enjoyed.
We've made it easy to comment by losing the 'are you human?' test, which means we get a lot of spam. Fortunately, Blogger recognises these, so most, if not all, anonymous comments are deleted without reading.
