BroadwayCon is opening up the design of its official 2017 merchandise to fans. The winning designer will see the design printed on BroadwayCon T-shirts, posters and other merch items.
Fans can download the official BroadwayCon logo to incorporate it into their designs, or create their own unique artwork to submit. BroadwayCon is looking for a “design that encapsulates the BroadwayCon spirit, love of theatre, inclusiveness, and sense of fun.”
The contest runs through October 3.
The top entrant will win one General Pass to BroadwayCon 2017 and one of each item the design is printed on. The top three designers will win a portfolio review from a professional at one of Broadway’s top advertising and marketing agencies.
Winners will be contacted by October 31.
