2013 NDG Bag Tag Design Contest
NDG announces the 2013 NDG Bag Tag Design Contest
- Design is for a 3"(W) x 4" (H) bag tag, similar to the 2012 NDG Bag Tags (see photo).
- Design is for front of tag. Rules will be listed on the back.
- Design must include room for large numbers (tags will be numbered 1-100).
- Similar to our 2012 tags, this year's tags will be 5 different colors based on the number (1-20 will be red, 21-40 will be orange, etc), so design must allow for the tags to be printed in these different colors.
- Design must be fully completed and ready for print.
- Winner receives a $50 Sunken Ship Gift Certificate. All others submitting entries will receive consolation prizes.
- Send entries to firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline to enter is Sun, May 12.
