a competition's competition --
you can design the annual cover

Ssssshhhh... Don't tell Chip Kidd!

The SND committee that brings you the annual Best of Newspaper Design competition each year is having a little competition of its own -- to find a design/concept for the 29th edition's cover. The committee is looking for a concept that promotes award-winning news design. They encourage a cutting-edge design as long as the content relates to newspaper design.

Please submit full-size concepts (9.25" x 12.25" -- measurements allow for a bleed trim of .25" on the top, bottom and right side). Full color is available and, if needed, the 29th Edition cover can include embossed area(s).

So what can you win? It's all about fame and glory: The first-place winner's cover will be used on the 29th edition (available in October 2008) and he or she will be recognized at the annual awards dinner at the Las Vegas conference.

Deadline for entries: Nov. 27, 2007.

Please direct questions and entries to:
Marshall Matlock, SND competition committee director

Phone: 315-263-8899

And now all the legal stuff: The SND Competition Committee and its book editor reserve the right to ask the cover designer to make changes if deemed necessary and the designers have the right to withdraw his or her cover from the competition if he or she does not wish to make the changes and the cover will not be used. No entries can be returned and non-winning entries remain the property of the committee.

Questions? Or just want to learn more about the competition committee? Check out their open meeting at the Boston workshop this Thursday:
Competition Committee, 1 p.m. Thurs., Oct. 11, Stuart Room
