Design for Good Poster Competition

This time, your design can make a difference and make history.

 As designers, we love to do great work for a great cause. And if we can get recognition and prizes for that work and make a little design history, so much the better!

Here's your chance! Between now and October 13, 2013, create a poster on the theme of Design for Good, enter it for electronic judging by former Pentagram partner and AIGA Medalist Kit Hinrichs, and have a beautiful print* of your work featured in the exhibition at Omni Studio on October 23, 2013 that will be part of Birmingham's first-ever Design Week!

Kit's first place winner will receive a free 1-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud, and one runner-up and the People's Choice winner will each receive 3-month subscriptions to Creative Cloud, courtesy of Adobe, a national sponsor of AIGA.

Don't miss this opportunity to create awareness for your favorite cause, get your work in front of a living design legend, and go down in history as part of the inaugural Design Week Birmingham! And even if you don't enter, join us for the show October 23 and enjoy a great evening with friends and fellow designers. Your support will help AIGA Birmingham create more opportunities for our community in the future.
