rethink-how-to-enterThe Contest Details
This contest is announcing an open call for submissions of sketchbooks from all art and graphic designers.  According to the sponsors:

"The sketchbook can be any size in terms of width and height, but it must have a hard black cover. Also, the number of pages in the book might vary depending on where you get it, though it should not exceed 250.

"Remember not to worry about filling out the whole book, because a few brilliant ideas are always better than a huge pile of mediocre work...

canada"Your job is to put your most interesting ideas into that sketchbook to demonstrate what you can do. Your book should also tell us something about who you are."

The official application form must accompany your sketchbook. This PDF document can be downloaded by clicking here. Mail your sketchbook for this contest to:

supreme-courtJudging and Submission Tips
The judges for this contest want to be "amazed" by your work. Entries will be judged upon:

* The clarity of the ideas and how they are executed ...within your sketchbook.
* The relevance in association to the scholarship program ....you are applying to.
* How "fresh" and imaginative the thinking is.
* The craft and production value of your work.
* Quality over quantity of your sketches. You don't have to show ever idea you've had.

The sponsors of this contest provide the following tips regarding the submission of sketchbooks:

* Give your book an idea (or ideas) beyond your bio. If we wanted that we'd just steal your diary.
* Your application to a communication arts program should, well, communicate, artistically.
* Don't use the entire book if there's no reason to. Remember that a few great ideas will always ...beat an entire book filled with mediocre work.
* Pen and paper aren't your only options. Sculptures, photos, interactive, it's all fair game.
* It never hurts to show us your thinking, we like seeing how you got to what you're presenting.
