2017 Collegiate Graphic Design Juried Show

THEME: Hometown Love

Our roots define us. We all come from different parts of the world. Show us what makes your hometown unique. Is it a retro diner that holds the title for "World's Biggest Cheeseburger," the biggest ball of twine or a historical landmark? Whatever you feel makes your hometown stand out, show us in an 11"x17" graphic poster. Everything must be computer generated.

One lucky best-of-show winner will receive a $500 award, courtesy of Lifeboat Creative. Students may submit up to three pieces. All current Kansas collegiate graphic design students are invited to submit their work. There is no entry fee.
