for students!

My professor sent out an e-mail about the AIGA DC student competition and I wanted to let everyone else in on the opportunity. AIGA DC definitely has an idea of what it's like to be a design student because they have made it FREEEE to enter for AIGA student members and there is no limit on number of entries!!! Ellen Lupton and Jake Lefebure (of Design Army) will be judging, so it's a great chance to have your work recognized by people who are doing well within the industry. Here is part of the e-mail!
AIGA DC is hosting its second annual student design competition Show Off.
Last year the competition was only open to AIGA DC students. This year we
are opening the competition to ALL students. We hope that you will share
this information with your students and help spread the word.

The purpose of this competition is to give students a stage to Show Off
their thinking, skills and talent. It’s never too soon for students to start
thinking about how they are going to promote themselves and stand above the
crowd once they are finished with their education.

The competition is FREE for AIGA students or any student who joins AIGA for
the purpose of entering the competition. Students who apply for student
membership when entering Show Off will receive free entry into the
competition. Plus their name will be entered into the running for the 500
printed business card give-away.

The Grand Prize Winner will receive $500 cash plus a copy of Adobe Create
Suites 4. Winners will also be recognized on the AIGA DC Web site.
If you are interested, you can find more information here. I really hope that everyone can take advantage of this!
