Introducing a Student Design Contest with a Ripping Prize.
The winner of the Rising Start Graphic Design Competition will have a chance to work with Ad agency Leo Burnett’s in Prague for six months, along with approx. $4,500 in total “pocket money” (15,000 CZK/month) and return air tickets. In Prague, where a beer costs a dollar, the money on offer is what an average student lives on, and the experience at Leo Burnett is priceless.
The comp. is open to students and all young graphic design enthusiasts. The competition contest consists of two rounds. The first is decided by the public votes – which can be done on both the contest site, as well as on www.behance.net and www.dribbble.com . The second round will be decided by both the public and an expert jury.
The first round has just kicked-off. You now have just a few weeks to design a corporate identity for a fictional brand. Their output should be: logotype, business card, letterhead, a basic key visual and a package design. The work will be accepted on the www.openbrand.com/risingstar microsite and gallery.
Public voting on the site will begin immediately – Designers are encouraged to deliver their work as soon as possible so they can spread the word and gather support on their social and design networks.
Deadline for submissions is May 12th, 2014 with voting ending a week later on May 19th. The top 20 will receive a brief from Leo Burnett, and will have just one week to deliver their designs in the final adrenaline round.
Winners will be selected by an expert jury – with Martin Klco, Managing Director of Leo Burnett Prague, Martin Pasecky, Creative Director and others. GDRS will announce winners at 2nd of June 2014.
“We know there are lots of hugely talented students who would love to get some recognition, especially in the advertising world” says Martin Klco, Managing Director of Leo Burnett Prague. “It’s time to shed some light on them and maybe even fast-track their careers,” he adds.
