Logo design competition for Scottish students
January 6, 2012 by Lyndon
Students in Scotland have the chance to design a logo to feature on the National Food and Drink Conference which is to be held in Scotland in March.
The winning logo will be showcased on promotional material for the conference and will feature on shopping bags as well as on items created using poster, flyer and brochure printing. From Ayr to Wick, students across Scotland who study at schools, colleges and universities may enter the competition.
As well as having their design featured on printed literature and shopping bags, the winning entrant will bag themselves £300 and there are also two runner’s up prizes of £100 each.
This could be a big break for students wishing to make the first steps into a career in design, marketing or advertising – areas that are notoriously hard to break into without at least some prior experience. Even those students who do not win may find it beneficial to start building up a portfolio of work done, even if this is something like advertising a local event by designing promotional material that is then printing using a local print shop. This all shows initiative and is a good way to showcase design and production skills. Scotland’s Secretary for Rural Affairs, Richard Lochhead, spoke to the Southern Reporter about the contest, saying:
“Through this competition, students nationwide will have the chance to showcase their creativity whilst helping us showcase our world class larder.”
The design competition closes on 10th February 2012 and full details as well as the design brief can be found on the Scotland.gov.uk website.
