Type-A Mom 2010 Poster Competition

Type-A Mom 2010 Poster Competition

For 2010, we are again featuring a Type-A Mom poster competition. Since Asheville is full of artists and since I know so many mom bloggers are uber creative and, quite simply, graphic art geniuses, I decided to let you guys design and help choose the official poster.

How to enter

Create an image that can be made into a high-quality 18″x24″ vertical poster. Get as creative as you’d like, and just be sure the poster says somewhere:

Type-A Mom Conference
Asheville, NC
September 24-26, 2010

You should also include your own name, web site address and Twitter @ at the bottom of the image. Something along the lines of “Image created by and © Jane Smith,, @janesmith.”

And it should reflect that this is a blogging and social media conference for parents. You can paint it, use a photo, create an illustration, anything so long as it is all your original work. You will also, of course, keep the copyright on your own work. I just ask for non-exclusive right to use your creation for promotional products, advertisements, flyers, posters and other official creations for Type-A Mom Conference.

The image must be in a printer-friendly digital vector format, as well as a smaller web-friendly jpeg format (311 pixels wide by 400 high preferably) to display on this site for voting.

Submit a comment below with a link to a post or URL where you have posted the image in web-friendly size. If you don’t have a web site, please email your entry with subject line “Poster Competition” to kelby at typeamom dot net.

The prize

The winner will receive a free Type-A Mom Conference+Type-A Mom Business pass. There is no alternative cash value!

You will also get your business name, Twitter @ and/or site URL on the bottom of all Type-A Mom Conference posters, t-shirts and other promotional materials that feature your artwork.

The rules

  • This isn’t a contest, but a competition. There is NOT a guaranteed winner. If only one person enters and the artwork does not fit the Type-A Mom Conference style and brand, there will be no winner. If there is only a small number of qualified and quality entries, it will not go to a vote. You can enter as many times as you’d like.
  • Once the entries come in, we will choose finalists among those we love. Those finalists will then get a chance to encourage people to come to vote for their work if we have enough entries. Voting will be limited to one vote per IP address, and the winner will be chosen by highest vote.

The deadline to enter by posting a link to your imagery in the comments below is May 15, 2010 at 11 p.m. EST.
