Graphic Design Student Show: Call for Entries (2013)
All graphic design and web design students at Parkland College.
Each student is eligible to enter an unlimited number of pieces. All work must have been completed during the past 12 months. By entering work in this exhibit, the entrant agrees that his/her works are submitted for jurying.
Type of entries accepted
All print, web and dynamic media projects (motion graphics, web animations, etc.) from the Graphic Design or Web Design program studio classes are eligible for entry. Most work done in the Fine Arts program are not eligible for this show.
Type of entries NOT accepted
Freelance work, work-for-hire projects or non-classroom work are not eligible.
Entries must have a separate printed entry form taped to back of each entry (ad campaigns containing multiple pieces can be submitted as a single entry). All entries must be submitted using the online entry form.
All print entries should be presented in a professional manner (prints with flaws will be disqualified). Whenever possible, entries should be mounted flush on foam-core board (available in C138). Multi-page documents (and series) should be submitted in a protective envelope. Entries should not be matted or framed. A web-ready image file must be uploaded at the time you fill out the entry form (see "Digital Exhibition" below).
Dynamic media entries
Dynamic media files (web sites, banner ads, motion graphics, animation) must be submitted in a browser compatible publishing format (HTML, GIF, SWF, MOV). Original authoring files (Photoshop, Flash, After Effects) will not be accepted. Files must be Internet-ready and published on a CD-ROM. In addition, a color laser of a single representative page (including the browser window) must be submitted mounted on foam core (see print entries above). See instructions for taking screenshots.
Because the entire Student Exhibition will be archived online as a "web catalog," you must also submit a web-ready JPEG or GIF file for each print entry (this is not required for dynamic media entries). Your web-ready image must be no wider than 800 pixels (there is no height limit, but the maximum file size is 200K). Please name your file with your last name in it (i.e. "smith-billboard2.jpg"). See instructions on rasterizing print pieces(or talk to your instructor).
Illustrations or photography must be original or based on copyright-free stock. Unpublished graphic design samples ("comps") may contain stock illustration or photography but such usage must be indicated on the entry form. Published graphic design pieces must have appropriate copyright clearances. Parkland College will not be liable for students' plagiarism. Work may be photographed by Parkland College and used for educational purposes.
Although every precaution will be taken, Parkland College and its staff will not be responsible for any loss of or damage to the works submitted, no matter how same may be caused. Entrants submit works subject to this condition. All accepted works must remain for the duration of the exhibit, as placed by the gallery staff.
Entries will be hand-delivered to the Art Gallery according to the published schedule. No work will be accepted after the deadline.
All entries will be disposed of unless you state otherwise on the entry form at the time of submission. Unaccepted work may be picked up in the Art Gallery according to the published schedule. After the exhibit closes, artwork may be picked up either in the Art Gallery or by contacting the Art Gallery at 217-351-2485. If you do not contact the Art Gallery by the date indicated, your entry will be discarded.
