New laFraise Contest: TYPO

Wed Jun 25, 2008, 10:25 AM
More info: www.lafraise.com/contest.php?b…

Details:

It's about time for a new European laFraise contest.

This time we thought Typography would be a good place to start seeing as we've had some great typo pieces in the past. It's definetly an artform that's been developing quite extensively within our art community here at laFraise and the art community as a whole.

Now there is no specific theme, we just want to see your custom typo. We want to discourage using pre-made fonts, we'd love to see a custom typeface created by you the designer.

Now I'm sure you want me to get to the good stuff, the contest starts July 7th-21st and will be available on the EU portion of laFraise but of course open to anyone.

Whats up for grabs?? Well each winner gets 1500 Euros and we'll pick a total of 3. Now depending on the amount of submissions and the quality maybe we'll pick a few more like we did with the Popdeck contest, thats entirely up to you guys ;)

So to recap:

-Typography contest. no theme

-Open to anyone

-1500 Euro prize with 3 winners

-Submissions are accepted between July 7th-21st

-Available on laFraise EU

We look forward to seeing your submissions.

I'm excited about this one, have fun guys!

he/she means that if lafraise gets rights for the "non-winner" entries that i think they don't, if you don't get in 1st or any place i think you can re-use the design, simple as that :? ?

yeah that was what I meant (sorry about my english) it is just that I have seen contest like that...the non-winner's entry belongs to the person or company that made the contest... :/ wich is not fair!!

j3concepts Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2008
yeah i agree, thats very lame.
with laFraise we dont keep the winning designs :)

j3concepts Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008
yeah, if you dont win, they dont keep your design, its yours. even if you do win, the design is still yours, they just have the right to print and sell it for 90 days or so.
