The Visual Art & Design Department invites Salt Lake Community College students to participate in a poster design contest announcing the 2018 SLCC Student Art Showcase.
This contest is open to all currently enrolled SLCC and SLCC Concurrent Enrollment students. (Professionals or instructors are not eligible. Entrants must be able to verify student status.) The winning poster design will be used to promote the 2018 SLCC Student Art Showcase on campus as well as other venues and media. In addition, a cash award of $200 will be given to the winner.
Only 1 SUBMISSION PER STUDENT will be accepted. The SLCC Student Art Showcase Committee reserves the right to accept or reject any entry.
The student winner may be asked to alter elements of the design for all the various art show applications as needed.
Poster contest submissions will be hung in display cases located on the second floor, north end of the SLCC South City from FEBRUARY 8 through 16.
The SLCC Student Art Showcase Committee will make final determination as to winning entry.
Document Setup: Tabloid 11 x 17 inches (tall) output at 100%. Set top, left and right margins at .375 inch. The bottom margin should be set at 1.5 inches. This will allow a white border around the design. Full bleed posters will not be accepted.
File Format: File should be created in either Adobe InDesign or Adobe Illustrator ONLY. Adobe Photoshop may only be used to alter photos or create effects. Type works best in InDesign or Illustrator. Remember this is a PRINT JOB. The actual file should NOT be sent, but if chosen will need to be in one of the required native file formats, and will need to be adapted for various applications.
Originality: Any illustration, graphic or photo must be the original work of the poster designer – or – a signed release form (if using another SLCC student(s)’s work, as in the case of photo or illustration) must be presented if a poster is chosen as the winner. NO STOCK PHOTOS. NO PUBLIC DOMAIN PHOTOS. If more than one SLCC student works on the poster, all must be credited and all must share in the winnings if chosen.
Color: 4 Color Process (cmyk) or Pantone Spot Color on white paper. NO RGB!
Submission: ONE output of poster design MUST BE SUBMITTED. Do not mount.
Student Information: Please CLEARLY PRINT your NAME, PHONE and EMAIL on the back, lower right hand corner of your poster. Posters will not be accepted if these three items are not listed.

In 2010, Salt Lake Community College Visual Art & Design Graphic Design students Nadya Bratt & Casey Kim created INK as a club for anyone interested in Graphic Design. After their graduation from SLCC, INK evolved into an online source for those passionate about the visual communication industry by offering access to news, resources, and networking.
VAD Associate Professor Kerry Gonzáles and caretaker for INK, is proud to share the talents and creative directions taken by Alumni & Friends of INK in this – the third annual – INK, an Alumni Art & Design Group Show.
Each piece showcases the design process from initial research and ideas to a completed product. And most importantly… how a good foundation in graphic design is used in a multitude of careers.
Graphic Designers Can Do Everything!
