on Thursday,February 03,2011 21:02
For aspiring graphic designers, contests may be the perfect opportunity to showcase talent. Although the chances of winning may be slim, competitions give individuals a creative outlet and increase the odds of being recognized by professional companies.
Recently, SPAM announced a new contest for designers who are looking to get their name out, according to the Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Residents of the Aloha State have been asked to create an image for its new Hawaiian collector's edition, which has 25 percent less sodium. The grand prize winner will receive $1,000, a can of the SPAM product, a gift bag and bragging rights.
Individuals who participate in the contest must download a special file on the SPAM official website to submit their design over the Internet. Beginning on February 21, officials from Hormel will begin sifting through the entries to find a winner. The recipient of the prizes will be announced on April 30.
Contests are an ideal opportunity for individuals to practice their design skills and determine if they are fit for a job in the industry. Employment of graphic designers is predicted to increase by 13 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
