Audubon Dakota issued the following Call for Artists:
Audubon Dakota, the Dakotas’ state office of National Audubon Society, is applying for a North Dakota organization license plate and wants to enlist the help of local graphic artists!
Organization license plates steer 60% of plate sales to the organization, which would be a huge help to achieve our goals of conserving birds and bird habitat. While it would be easy for us to use the highly recognized Audubon logo for the license plate design, we see a greater opportunity to emphasize the importance of critical grassland habitat conservation with a logo customized for use on license plates across the state.
A prize of $500 will be awarded to the winning artist. Although we welcome any and all creative directions, following are a few guidelines:
Image must be 2 ½” in diameter
Image must include Audubon Dakota logo (please email email@example.com or image file)
Image will be subject to approval from National Audubon Society
Winning artist agrees to donate design to National Audubon Society: DBA Audubon Dakota for use on North Dakota license plates and sign an image use agreement
Images for consideration should be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 5:00pm on September 30, 2018 and include: o 1 EPS file o 1 JPG or PNG file
Below are a few examples:
It’s important to note is that the Minnesota, Connecticut, and Montana examples are specialized designs through the state conservation program; whereas North Dakota’s program is individualized by the requesting organization and restricted to the 2 ½” design placed on the standard plate.
We are very excited for this opportunity and look forward to receiving your submissions! Best of luck to all participants, and thank you for your time and commitment to helping us help the birds!
