Art Contest

AnomalyCon is looking for artists! We are running an art contest for the T-Shirt and badge art for 2015. The theme is more science than fiction. There are endless possibilities for this, especially with a steampunk twist.
Submissions are due in high-def form by July 31, 2014. The winner will receive two free badges to AnomalyCon 2015, as well as a T-Shirt with their design on it. Send us your interest via our Contact Form with the subject “Art Submission” and we can arrange the transfer of your high-definition art! All submissions become the property of AnomalyCon and cannot be returned.
We will accept separate submissions for T-Shirt and multiple badge types. Different artists’ submissions will be used and all will receive the prize.
Full color is preferred for the badge but the ideal art for the shirt would look good as white on black or vice versa. Art size is relative but the image will need to be large enough to look good as a roughly 9×12 image on a tshirt.
Image submission needs to be at least 600dpi.
We don’t have any specific “must haves,” except that it needs to in some way reflect steampunk or scifi and have something reflecting the theme. You can incorporate AnomalyCon 2015 into the art but it is not necessary. If the winning piece does not have this we will incorporate it. With that in mind, images ideally will be submitted in jpg, png or tiff format (png preferred) to make changing the color/size/adding text easier for us.
The T-Shirt will be black unless the art we choose has to be on a white shirt.
The editing on our end may include possible orientation changes, sizing, color (to monochromatic or possibly sepia), and adding text if necessary, but no further.
All artists are allowed to participate, but those outside the US will still have to find their own way to the con to claim their prize.
