Competition to Design the Logo ICLS 2014

posted 29 Nov 2012, 03:33 by ICO Education
The coordinating committee for the 11th International Conference of the Learning Sciences is pleased to announce a competition to design the logo for the conference. The conference will be held in June 2014 on the campus of the University of Colorado Boulder. 

We are seeking a logo design that reflects both the conference theme and the area where the conference will be held. The theme of the conference is “Learning and Becoming in Practice,” and we encourage proposals related to the epistemic practices of disciplines, learning in sociocultural practices, practices of design, practices of modeling learning across setting and time, and practices of scaling and sustainability.

The competition is open to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars from any field. The winner of the logo design will have their registration fee for the conference waived.

Requirements for the logo are:
- Includes the name of the conference and location (University of Colorado Boulder) 
- Reflects conference theme and place 
- Looks great on a large-format poster as well as a web site 

Only includes images you have the right to use and modify. To support this task, we have made a Dropbox folder containing images publicly available https://www.dropbox.com/sh/yzrisee63xpe0hw/iAqwifwmgo. You may use images you have created, or those you find that are covered by a license allowing for free reuse, modification, and distribution.

Entries must include JPEGs with at least 100 dpi. Because the logo will be used for various purposes, you must submit TWO versions:
1 small format for computer screens (~5-8 inches wide) 
2 large format for printing on banners (~50-80 inches wide) 

By submitting a logo, you agree to a Creative Commons License, as the finalists may be displayed and the winning logo will be used on promotional items. Finalists will be asked to provide the original file used to create the image (e.g., .ai, .eps, .psd, etc.) and alternate versions, such as grayscale and black&white line art, may be generated. Preferred color model is CMYK.

Entries for the competition are due to Vanessa Svilha at vsvihla@unm.edu on December 31, 2012. The winner will be announced in the third week of January.
