Digital design gurus: test your skills in the Web & Graphic Design competition

Do you know the difference between a jpeg and tif? Know what a vector graphic is? Or is Java more than just a cup of coffee to you? If so, we’ve got a competition for you that can earn you up to $140, a ribbon and bragging rights.

The Web & Graphic Design Competition, now in its 15th year, challenges Internet-savvy and creative participants to use the N.C. State Fair as the subject of original graphic and Web page designs. Competitors will need to incorporate this year’s theme, “A Whole Lotta Happy,” into their entries.

The competition is open to students and individuals and is broken down into several age groups for both design and Web site design categories.

Registration begins Wednesday, Sept. 23 and ends Wednesday, Oct. 7. You can find rules and technical guidelines on the State Fair Web site.

About Blue Ribbon

Natalie Alford blogged for the 2009-2011 N.C. State Fairs. This is her bio from 2009: I work at the Fairgrounds year-round, so I'm always in the middle of the fun! During the Fair, I work with the press office team to organize events and exhibits, and log a lot of miles on my pedometer. I'm also the County Agricultural Fairs Coordinator, which means I license, promote and visit North Carolina's agricultural fairs and enjoy thousands of blue ribbon entries every year. I hope to see you at the Fair!
