posts about or somewhat related to ‘contests’
Corbis, the stock photography/video/font/design company, has a poster contest with the winner getting £1000 (~$1,600) donated to his or her cause of choice.
Use your creative talents to raise awareness for a cause you passionately believe in. There are hundreds of non-profit organisations and under-represented issues that need help being heard. So let’s give them a stronger voice.
Design a poster promoting a cause that really matters to you. No restrictions on the topic but a social focus is mandatory. The best work will have both a high level of technical ability and also carry a strong, clear and engaging message.
Deadline is November 25 and the one requirement is that you use one or more images provided by Corbis in your poster.

The Society of Professional Journalists’ Mark of Excellence Awards honors college students in print, radio, television and online journalism.
The deadline for submissions is January 26 and the contest is open to college students studying in the United States.
And, of course, good luck to those who apply.
