It’s time for you to design the 2012 coin!! We are looking for something unique to BC. Think of shape and texture, maybe even special features. Look at previous years. What do you want to see different? The same?
If you have submitted a coin design before and want it reviewed again please resubmit it. This may be the year for it!!
The coin designs don't have to be camera ready art. If you can get your concept down on paper, please send that to us. We're not looking for artistic perfection. We're looking for fresh ideas. We will give all submissions the same respect and consideration.
In addition we reserve the right to refine any design (but with full disclosure to the designer prior to changes), use different metals, enamel colors or special enamels such as glitter, glow in the dark, etc.
Please do not post your design on the forums.
Here are the basic guidelines you need to follow for your submissions.
Submit your designs to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject Line: 2012 BCGA Coin Design
Please include, on your submissions:
~Your caching name if you have one
~Your real name (first and last)
~Designs need to be in jpg or gif format.
~Images should be no larger than 500kb (that’s front image 500kb, back image 500kb).
~Designs must be submitted by July 31, 2012.
~Submit as many designs as you like.
~At least one side should be BCGA related ie. incorporating our “logo” and the letters “BC Geocaching Association”
~a space for “trackable at geocaching.com
~a space for a tracking number
~Designs must not infringe on any copyrights or trademarks.
We are looking for a concept that we can have translated into a coin but will accept more polished submissions from those who are willing and able to do so. In fact we can send you a sample of the final blueprint format so that you know what the mint is looking for. A mint ready submission format would be Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or similar scalable vector format (.eps)
The winning submission will become property of the BCGA, no matter which coin manufacturer is used. The BCGA directors will be selecting the final design. There will be one design picked to become the BCGA coin, although we may or may not use any of the designs submitted.
Design winner will receive 15 coins for their efforts.
All non-winning designs submitted will be released back to the owner/designers the day the BCGA directors select a winning design.
This contest is open to everyone except BCGA Directors and their immediate families.
DO NOT POST ANY IMAGERY ON THE FORUMS!! full article
