There is no fee for entering the competition. It’s easy to apply, just download the Application Form.
Select one of your own already completed student design projects that involves the use of color, created within the past 3 years, and write a one-sentence description.
Write a short essay about why you selected the colors that were used, including the rationale or reasoning behind the color choices; the maximum length is 2000 characters.
Submit two PDF documents: 1) your design project, labeled Your First and Last name_Project, and 2) the Application Form, with your project description and essay, labeled Your First and Last name_Color Choices.
All submissions must be digital PDFs with a combined max file size of 25MB.
All submissions must be sent to email@example.com with the subject line: Scholarship Entry_Your First and Last Name by the deadline date.
The criteria for judging is based on the written portion of the entry ONLY; the design project is meant to offer a context for a student’s color choices. The IACC-NA judges will be looking for knowledge and understanding of color and its application, and how the chosen colors would affect the user/viewer as it applies to your project subject.
By applying for this scholarship, you agree: that you meet the eligibility requirements, that the work submitted is your own and not someone else’s, that you allow the submitted work to be used, with credit, in our social media/marketing or website content to promote our scholarship.
Thank you and good luck!
