Every good convention needs a badge – even a virtual convention. In the spirit of GenCant, we’re having a quick contest for the “official” badge design. Of course – ALL GenCant badge designs are accepted for admittance to the convention. But if you want to feel that badge-bond with your fellow GenCanters – the official badge will be the way to do it!

.

So get out your pens, Photoshop, crayons, or MS Paint and start designing!

.

The rules

  1. All submissions due by 9pm (Pacific) July 27, 2015.
  2. Submissions should be emailed as an attachment to suzanne@gencant.com with the subject line “badge”
  3. GenCant is a family-friendly event. Please design accordingly.
  4. Please ensure you have the rights to use any imagery or iconography you use on the design.
  5. The Selection Committee’s decision is final and based purely on collective subjective preference.

.

A few tips

  1. Typical badge size is 4″x3″. This isn’t required, but this way the official badge will slip easily into someone’s badge lanyard they may have from other events.
  2. Remember people will be printing at home…so full color badges aren’t recommended as they eat up the ink.
  3. Designs can be designed on the computer or hand drawn.
  4. Please save files as a JPG or PNG in a high resolution.

.

The selected badge design will be posted to the GenCant website as the official badge of the convention and the designer will receive a prize pack (contents TBD) as a thank you!

      Yes! They will be posted (well, hopefully) shortly after the submission deadline ends.
