NSS Banner Redesign Contest

 

Current Design [6 x 2 ˝ ft]

 


 


The National Space Society (NSS) is looking for designs that create visions of space exploration and settlement.  Designs that bring attention to our goal of creating a space-faring civilization. The National Space Society and their NSS Chapters are sponsoring a contest for such designs to be included in our next printing of Banners/Signs for use during NSS Chapter and National projects and events.

 

The purpose of the redesign contest is to create an NSS Banner that will inspire the person who is viewing it to want to become part of our pursuit of Space Exploration and Settlement and to join up on the spot because this is what the scene is projecting.  This can certainly lead to a variety of designs that would elicit such feelings in each of us.

 

What do you think that design would be? Can you put it down on paper using a pencil or computer graphics? Or design it by using some of the Banner design sites available online, photography or using cut and paste techniques.  Whatever method you choose it must be a design that is completely your own with no copyrighted artwork, pictures, etc.

 

Designers, whether professional or amateur, are encouraged to submit as many designs as they can imagine and create.

The best of the submitted designs will be selected for our new line of Banner and Small poster printings.

Please Note:  The NSS Banner Redesign Contest has been extended past it’s original submission deadline date of April 30th. New Deadline – Sunday, May 13, 2007
