Hello! I was wondering if you will be running this competition again this year. I have a daughter graduating high school June of 2017 and she is interested in going to a 4 year college to study graphic design. She would love to enter this competition.
We have not finalized our plans for 2017, but we will most likely be running the contest again.
Keep and eye out in the spring of 2017!
Just checking in to see if you are planning to offer the scholarship for high school students in 2018. My daughter is a senior in high school and will be attending college in the fall to major in animation and film. She would love to apply to the scholorship. Thanks!
