Show Off Your Creative Side, With Au Sable’s Bumper Sticker Design Contest!

Feb 01, 2017


With a community of supporters and alumni marked not only by a passion for the care and study of creation but also a distinct creative streak, the Au Sable Institute is inviting submissions for our next bumper sticker design. We want to create a visual that conveys the essence, experience, and mission of Au Sable that can be applied to your car or your water bottle as a decal and even used as a graphic for other Au Sable gear. That’s what we are after.

Get creative! Draw it, paint it, stamp it, design it on your computer. We welcome submissions created through any artistic medium, as long as you can submit it as a digital vector file (pdf, ai, svg, eps). Submissions may be in color, but also must be accompanied by a black and white rendering of the design. There are no specific shape restrictions, but keep in mind what shape and size would work well for a sticker. It is better to design it big, a large design can be scaled down more easily than a small one can be enlarged!

The winning design will be printed as Au Sable’s 2017 sticker.  The successful designer will receive a $100 REI gift card as well as a year’s supply of bragging rights!

This contest will run from February 1st until March 1st 2017 with the winner being announced Wednesday, March 8th. Judging will be completed by a panel of Au Sable staff.

The Au Sable Bumper Sticker Contest is open to alumni, donors and community members. Staff, faculty and their families are not eligible. Entries must be accompanied by a signed agreement to the terms and conditions of the contest in order to be considered.

Multiple entries welcomed!

Send your designs and signed terms and conditions form to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) before March 1st for your chance to see your Au Sable bumper sticker grace the windows, bumpers, water bottles, binders and bikes of the Institute's community near and far! 

Looking forward to seeing what you've got!
