Stereohype's 13th annual Button Badge Design Competition #STBBDC

13th annual Stereohype Button Badge Design Competition (2017) #STBBDC

Please download the instructions and artwork guidelines here (PDF including brief, artwork guidelines, prizes, jury, links to PSD templates and more).

No entry fee!

Submission deadline: September 17th, 2017, 11.59pm/23:59 (in your time zone).

Following the success of over a decade of our design competitions and last year's record-breaking amount of submissions, we are now pleased to announce the 13th annual one inch (25mm) Stereohype Button Badge Design Competition. We look forward to receiving your submissions. Please note that we will unfortunately not be able to send individual submission receipts. There will be an auto-reply however that is only being sent when your submission actually arrives in our submission inbox. You will be notified during and after judging period (shortly after the deadline). There are a few competition rule and guideline updates this year so please read everything (including our more detailed instructions and artwork guidlines PDF).

There are two categories you can win in: ‘Single Badge' entries and ‘Sets of 4’. Sets will automatically also be added to the single entries category. Although we love ‘Sets of 4’ ­– please bear in mind, that we are aiming to give quite a lot of them away one at a time (although sets will be made available in a special packaging). Please email one to (A MAXIMUM OF) four different badge designs per participant to submit@stereohype.com and refer to the instructions and artwork guidelines, file specifications and links to the .PSD templates on page 4 of this artwork guide (and in 'Downloads' section of flat33.com). Submitting more than 4 designs would be unfair to those who follow the competition rules. Submission of more than 4 designs by person will therefore result in disqualification. Please provide all required information in English.

ELIGIBLE are entries by designers, artists, photographers, illustrators and by students in any of these areas – including runners-up from previous competitions. Participants must however be 18+ years old. NOT ELIGIBLE however are contributors to our B.I.O. (By Invitation Only), MICA, AFOMFS, 10x10 Series, Emoji Series and former competition winners who are now more than welcome to become part of the judging panel that will as always consist of design journalists, professionals and previous winners.

Your artwork(s) will have to be created by yourself and should obviously not infringe any copyrights! Winners will give Stereohype automatically a NON-exclusive licence to reproduce the winning artwork(s) on badges and Stereohype-badge-related promotional materials such as postcards, catalogues, etc. By submitting your artwork(s) you agree on these terms and conditions. A shortlist will also be featured at stereohype.com crediting the artists and designers.

Please do have a look at the 270 winning badge designs of previous competitions and the rest of the 1,244 existing designs that are already included in our collection and avoid nipple designs, button buttons, popsicles with face, and back of badge artworks. Been there, done that, and already included those to our Stereohype collection... 8) We do not tolerate religiously offending, racist, sexist or sexually explicit visuals, nor do we accept imagery that plays down the danger of weapons.

We will give winning artworks away as a free surprise badge with purchased Stereohype T-shirts or sell them separately via stereohype.com and our growing list of selected stockists. Your badge design(s) might also be reprinted for promotional purposes featuring photos of your badge. Designers, artists and illustrators will – wherever possible – be appropriately credited.

Please also consider this new aspect of Stereohype's collection:
Stereohype recently launched a new edition of Fine Art Giclée Prints as part of a series called Button Badge Motif Prints featuring selected button badge motifs from our collection. Winners might therefore be offered to become part of the print series at some point which does involve royalties for each sold Button Badge Motif Print. Please keep this size consideration in mind when preparing your high resolution files. Winners are NOT automatically part of the print series, too. The print series involvement requires a personal invitation from Stereohype that might follow at some point in the future as we slowly add print motifs from our huge badge collection... This is explained in more detail in our submission guidelines PDF.

We can’t wait to see your design(s).
GOOD LUCK!
