This year’s scholarship is bigger than before!
This year we’re giving away a lot more prizes and providing more exposure for the winner.
For those that don’t know, Moo is a great resource when it comes to creating and printing useful items like business cards, postcards, and flyers. We felt it’d be a great tool for an up and coming designer to have in their arsenal. That’s why we’re going to be awarding the top three winners with gift cards worth $50. It’s a good amount to help them get started.
Spamming Social Media
This year the winner will be featured not only on our AIGA website, but also on our Facebook and Instagram account. We felt like if your work is good it should be showcased right? The winner will be asked to provide a headshot and send us one of their best pieces from their scholarship submission. The social posts will feature their photo, prominent piece, and a little blurb about them. The blog post on the AIGA website will be a mini interview of the top winner.
The Actual Scholarship
AIGA Connecticut didn’t do a scholarship last year (we failed, we know) so to make up for that we’ve made the pot a little sweeter. This year’s scholarship will be $1,500 instead of the $1,000 of previous years. That’s a whole lot more art supplies and materials for the upcoming year. The winner will be contacted by May 7, 2018 and then ceremonially awarded at an upcoming AIGA Connecticut event that month.
Where do I sign up?!
