And if I could add this — and not to be snarky — but the CFR uses an image for each post. That’s the convention and it works. And when we came across the press release for this event — the eighth annual poster design competition for high school students addressing the theme “Life is better with art in it,” for which the winner receives up to a full-tuition scholarship to one of The Art Institutes schools — we thought it was a natural, a slam-dunk. Then we set about trying to find a suitable image. Why not use the winning poster from 2010, right?
Well, just finding it (2010’s winner: Simona Giordano) was something of an adventure. Why it wasn’t easier to locate via search is puzzling. Shouldn’t it have been plastered on every website and blog imaginable for the last 12 months? Something to think about.
In the meantime, the press release:
The Art Institutes and Americans for the Arts today announced they are seeking entries for their eighth annual Poster Design Competition. The Competition challenges entrants to submit a poster that addresses the theme, “Life is better with art in it.” The national winners will earn up to a full-tuition scholarship to one of The Art Institutes schools.
In partnership with Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts, The Art Institutes annual Poster Design Competition provides design-minded students an opportunity to study at one of the more than 45 Art Institutes schools.
The competition is open to high school seniors in the U.S., Canada (excluding Quebec) and Puerto Rico. The deadline to submit entries is Feb. 4, 2011. Full entry requirements can be viewed here….
