A link to a page holding a design competition found its way to my inbox today. The offer really is too good to be true..
Whilst preparing for the launch of the Taskforce and this website we were looking at a mock up of the site. It looked a little bare. We needed a banner. We thought, who better to supply the banner than you? So rather than send the job off to the department’s designer we thought we’d hold a competition to design a banner for our site, and a logo for the Taskforce.
The prize? Well like a lot of things on Web 2.0, there’s no money involved, just your pride in your work and the opportunity to have that pride vindicated and acknowledged publicly – in short a platform to show the world how good you are! And a platform to express graphically the potential of Government 2.0.
So get to it.
The address is http://gov2.net.au/banner-competition/
If your keen better get in quick, I'm sure there are going to be plenty of quality designers chasing that sweet reward.
