I’ve been sick for over a week now. It’s really pissing me off. I have shit to DO, man! But I’m finally well enough to at least type while I lie on the couch. My apologies if this week’s posts are a little short.
With Earth Day coming up in a month a number of websites/companies are sponsoring “green design” contests:
- Threadless is having a green t-shirt design contest, with a $2,000 cash prize and loads of other stuff. The deadline is April 6th.
- Inhabitat is having a contest for objects made out of re-used materials. Their prize is $200 and the deadline is March 27th.
- Adventure Ecology is also having a “trash into treasure” contest called the “Smart Art Competition.” Submission deadline is May 1st and top prize is $2,000 cash and a “prominent” San Francisco exhibition.
I plan to enter all of these, and many more craft/design competitions. It’s a great way to create portfolio assignments for yourself with real guidelines, real deadlines and the possibility of real rewards!
