PLEASE NOTE: Due to a number of recent requests from designers, the deadline for the 2018 Mars Society Poster Contest has been extended until Wednesday, April 18th, 5:00 pm MST. The design competition was originally scheduled to end on April 13th.
The 2018 Mars Society Poster Contest kicked off recently. Members and friends alike are invited to submit a poster for consideration, with the winning design to be used as the main promotional graphic for the 21st Annual International Mars Society Convention, scheduled for August 23-26 at the Pasadena Convention Center (Pasadena, California).
Those intending to create a poster for the annual competition are asked to incorporate the main theme of this year’s international convention - “Mars & The Space Revolution” - into their planned layout. The deadline for submitting a poster design is Friday, April 13th (5:00 pm MST).
Standard technical requirements for the contest are as follows: 1) The poster size should be 11" x 17", 2) There are no restrictions with regard to use of color, 3) If your poster is selected, the designer will need to submit a full color poster as well as a gray-scale version, and 4) Poster designs can be submitted in Photoshop or as a .pdf file (although the former is preferred).
The winning designer will receive free admission to all sessions of the 21st Annual Mars Society Convention in Pasadena, California, including one ticket to the Saturday evening banquet. [Please note that airfare and hotel accommodations are not included.]
