The Graphic Arts Education and Research Foundation (GAERF) has announced the launch of the GAERF 2011 Student Design Competition.  This third annual contest challenges entrants to design marketing materials to promote www.graphiccommcentral.org. The GAERF 2011 Student Design Competition invites students to be creative by taking their original design from concept to finished product as they review the contents of the eight main sections of the website.

The competition is open to all students attending secondary or post-secondary institutions in the continental United States who are studying in a graphic communications / printing, advertising, graphic design or interactive media program. Entries selected by GAERF will be judged by industry professionals who maintain the website.

First place winners and their instructors will receive two-day, all-inclusive paid trips to attend Graph Expo.  In addition, the students will receive $2,000 awards presented during the show’s Career Awareness Day, September 14, 2011.  Second place winners will be awarded $1,500, and the third place winners will receive $1,000.

"GAERF is proud to continue its commitment to supporting education initiatives by encouraging creativity and self-expression in students through the art of design and production," says GAERF President Ralph Nappi. "This competition will serve to recognize our best and brightest students, as well as the significant commitment of their instructors."
