Anti-bullying Ad Campaign Contest

Nov

01

Time: on-going
Location: ACG

ACG and Lamar Publications present the Anti-bullying Ad Campaign Contest.

Students in grades 6-12 are invited to create a design for a public service billboard incorporating an anti-bullying theme.

Selected work will be seen on a Lamar digital billboard around the capital district. (exact date TBD)

Process: Interested students should design a billboard with an anti-bullying message. Using the provided template for scale, consider the elements of graphic design (legibility, emphasis, balance, contrast, creative use of line & text, focal point, punch-outs, boarder designs, etc.). Remember that the view-time is @ 8 seconds for a passing motorist so the principle of “dynamic simplicity” may be the most important.

*(Lamar Publications has a powerpoint available on advertising design).
