Surtex Competition Nears
November 7, 2005,
White Plains, N.Y. — All third and fourth year students enrolled in an art/design program of any kind in a higher learning institution are invited to compete in the Surtex 2006 International Student Design competition.
The competition challenges students to create a coordinating collection of surface designs — a minimum of six and maximum of nine — for a space in which a fictional client's “Elegant Event” would take place with a specific end-use in mind. The collection should be themed and the designs original. Students are free to use their choice of medium.
A jury of design industry professionals and trade press will select winners based on: surface design development; creativity, style and use of color and pattern; potential for viability in the commercial marketplace; and overall presentation.
