PIXARTPRINTING LOGO CONTEST
Opening date: 3 pm (GMT+1) on June 27th 2016
Closing date: 3 pm (GMT+1) on September 1st 2016
NB: the graphic projects uploaded will only be visible to Pixartprinting. All logo concepts that will not be awarded a prize will remain the property of their authors.
Pixartprinting is the printing technology partner for thousands of customers through its web-to-print shop, and has been so for sixteen years. Every day, more than 8,000 graphic projects are uploaded on our platform, to be printed on assorted media and then delivered throughout Europe, and now the USA.
Pixartprinting is continuously growing, improving and evolving to stay on the cutting edge. It is in this spirit that we have set up the contest: for the first time, we are turning to the huge network of graphic designers and creatives who have been choosing Pixartprinting for years.
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for a concept on which to build a new logo: a contemporary one, capable of expressing the distinctive traits of Pixartprinting and its constant evolution. Above all, something evocative. You don't need to present a finalized project, what we are looking for is a logo concept..
You may even submit a draft, and of course you can attach all the graphic material that can help us understand your idea's creative potential. The route you took to devise your submission and/or a few examples of how it can be featured and the concepts you drew inspiration from are more interesting for us than the logo's vector image.
The winning concept will be the basis from which we will create Pixartprinting's new brand logo.
Pixartprinting is a leading Web-to-print business, serving over 250,000 creative professionals, print resellers and local printers. Originally founded in 1994 in Italy, Pixartprinting specializes in providing online printing services, with products including marketing materials, books, magazines, decals, signs and display items. In April 2014, Pixartprinting joined Cimpress and is now launching its business in the United States.
Pixartprinting believes in respecting people and the environment, an essential shared principle underlying any relationship or initiative.
Our values are innovation, quality, competitiveness and cutting-edge technology.
Printing, on any media or size, is necessary whenever a project needs to be promoted. It is something both individuals and businesses need.
You can upload your logo concept in jpg, tiff or pdf format. You may attach any other graphic or textual material you consider useful for a better understanding of your project's creative potential.
Only original and unpublished projects may be uploaded.
If you wish to integrate your concept by submitting example images, e.g. drafts for press campaigns or suggestions on how to use the logo, you may use stock photo material (watermarked). They will only be used internally, to allow us to evaluate your project and fully understand your proposal.
Files uploaded on to Zooppa must not contain any indication liable to identify their author. Any file bearing details of the author's identity will not be transmitted to Pixartprinting by Zooppa.
The winner may be asked to collaborate with Pixartprinting to finalize the project (a specific budget may be agreed on with the author).
Uploading instructions: a thumbnail image file for the project (in jpg, png or gif format) must be uploaded in the first step. The second step will allow additional material (presentations, images, applications, etc.) to be uploaded in .zip format.
NB: your concept will be viewed by Pixartprinting only, and will not be shared with any third parties.
The go-to place for all your research is our website www.pixartprinting.com
You will find all the resources about who we are and what we strive to be.
You will not be given our current logo, nor any kind of reference that could influence you: we are open to anything!
IMPLEMENTING YOUR CREATIVITY
The winning logo concept will be developed either by Pixartprinting's internal creative team or by directly involving the author (with a specific budget to be agreed on with the author).
The graphic projects uploaded will only be visible to Pixartprinting. All logo concepts that will not be awarded a prize will remain the property of their authors.
Pixartprinting will select the author of the concept deemed to be the best at its sole discretion among all those submitted. The winner will be awarded a gross fee of €5,000**.
Also, all participants who submit a creative project will enjoy a 50% discount on their next order with Pixartprinting.
**The fee will be paid net of a 25% withholding tax.
All contest entries must comply with this brief and with the contest's terms and conditions.
You may not enter this contest by submitting symbols, logos or images acquired under license from stock photo websites. All the content submitted must be original.
By uploading a project on to Zooppa, you confirm that you own all rights to it and that you are not committing any copyright infringement. To avoid disqualification, please only submit content you are the author of.
