Our design competition
Whilst preparing for the launch of the Taskforce and this website we were looking at a mock up of the site. It looked a little bare. We needed a banner. Then we thought . . . who better to supply the banner than you? So rather than send the job off to the department’s usual designer we thought we’d hold a competition to design a banner for our site, and a logo for the Taskforce.
The prize? Well like a lot of things on Web 2.0, there’s no money involved, just your pride in your work and the opportunity to have that pride vindicated and acknowledged publicly – in short a platform to show the world how good you are! And a platform to express graphically the potential of Government 2.0.
So get to it and good luck!
The fine print
The banner should be 920 pixels wide by 180 high. The logo can be in dimensions of your choosing. For quick loading, the file size of the banner should be no more than 50Ks. Note that the existing banner identifies the site, so your banner should do so too. The file size of your logo should be no more than 500Ks and may not be accepted if it is not. The logo should be provided in a scalable (preferably vector based) or high quality version so it can be incorporated in any potential printed documents. Please use a popular graphics format such as jpeg, png, gif, or psd. If we wish to use your design we’ll be in touch and can sort out any further technical details at that point and not subject to a file size limitation.
You should get entries in by 10 pm Friday 3rd July 2009 after which time they may not be considered.
