We’re hosting our very first In-House Label Design Competition!
This means that those of you who design your companies’ product labels are finally going to get the recognition you deserve. Every in-house label designer is eligible to enter their product label artwork, and entries will be judged by a panel of packaging experts. The entry fee doesn’t exist – it’s totally free of charge to enter the contest.
Watch this short video about the In-House Label Design Competition.
What Can You Win?
The public announcement of winners will be held at Pack Expo in Chicago on November 3rd, 2014.
- The Grand prize winner will win $500 and the coveted “Quickly” trophy.
- Second prize winner will win $300.
- Third place winner will win $150.
Why Are We Recognizing In-House Label Designers?
We know that being an in-house label designer can be a job with a lot of responsibility and too little reward. You face short deadlines, hear conflicting opinions from your boss, colleagues, and customers, work with low-resolution graphics, shoot your own photos, come up with great new product names off the top of your head, and more!
But now all of your efforts will no longer go unrecognized. By hosting this competition, QuickLabel is aiming to recognize the work that goes behind each label.
There are people in the business that have an art degree, and there are some who don’t. Your level of talent in art, or anything else, isn’t measured by how many years you went to college for it – it’s measured by how much of your soul that you pour into it! And as in-house label designers, you pour an overflowing amount. Sometimes that can be hard, and sometimes that can be easy, but both deserve recognition.
Who is Eligible to Enter?
What if you don’t own a QuickLabel printer?
The answer to that is super simple: you don’t have to own a QuickLabel printer to enter into the competition. We’re urging all in-house label designers to enter.
How to Enter the In-House Label Design Competition
How can you win all that extra cash and that awesome trophy for your desk if you don’t submit your labels? You can’t. Actually, you won’t.
So where’s the harm in trying? The only thing you have to lose is nothing. Finalists will be contacted in October, and those who won will be announced on November 3, 2014 at the Pack Expo trade show in Chicago.
So, think it over. If you want to submit, then do it here. We accept .pdf, .jpg, .jpeg, .png, and please make sure these files are less than 10 Mb. So, it’s time to whip out your thinking caps and open up Photoshop!
We’re waiting for you.
