Design The Future - Infographic Design Contest!

 

Calling All Infographic Designers!

 

Hosted here on Cool Infographics, PosterBrain.com is sponsoring the Design The Future infographic contest for the best Utopia or Doomsday infographic poster.  The grand prize will be a 16GB iPad2.  Plus random prizes will be awarded throughout, no matter what everyone will get something.  Instead of giving you a subject for the infographic we will provide the data and you will create your own subject.  Data MUST be pulled this data spreadsheet available on Google Docs.  THIS IS THE ONLY SOURCE you can gather data for your infographic from.  Judging will be based on creativity, aesthetics, clarity and the story that your infographic tells.

Contest will end when they receive 50 Entries!  So act fast!

 

Of course you can create you own illustrations and visualizations, but DepositPhotos.com is offering a free, PROMO CODE to all designer participants.  This promo code gets you FIVE FREE images to use in your design!

 

Click here for all of the Official Contest Page with of the details.

 

Once you submit your entry, 33% of the judging criteria will be on how many people “LIKE” your image on our Facebook contest page.  Once you email in your entry, PosterBrain will post them on the Facebook page so you can start gathering LIKEs.

Everyone is encouraged to enter, so even if you have never designed an infographic before, this is your opprtunity.  Plus, PosterBrain will be awarding some random prizes to participants

Is this competition still open? The DepositPhotos promo code doesn't work? Please advice I have started a design.

Absolutely the contest is still OPEN! The contest will remain open until we receive 50 entries or March 1, 2012 - whichever comes first!

Also, thank you for the comment about the DepositPhotos promo code. Try it again! The code validity has been extended to February 18, 2012, so it should work for anyone that wants to use it as part of their design.

Looking forward to seeing your design!
