Week Long Events
2019 Technology Poster Contest: “Syracuse, a Tech City!”
Syracuse Tech Week is an interdisciplinary display of technology. Though the focus of Tech Week 2019 is on drones, robotics, raspberry pi, and cyber security, that is not all our local community manufacturers and entrepreneurs have to offer. Syracuse Tech Week is really about promoting Syracuse’s technology ecosystem.
Your challenge is to design a poster that represents “Syracuse, a Tech City!”
Use creative imagery to show “Syracuse” and “technology” in one image, and try to avoid any words or phrases other than the word “Syracuse”, if preferred.
Each poster entry must be an original piece of artwork done on thick poster board. Any art medium may be used (e.g., colored pencils, crayons, paint, etc.). Three dimensional objects accepted. Computer graphics, up to 30% of the piece, may be used. Original artwork must be hand-drawn by the entrant. Pale colors should not be used because they are too difficult to reprint. All entries are property of Syracuse Tech Week, and may be displayed at any and all Syracuse Tech Week events. All poster entries will be photographed and printed for marketing purposes.
How to Submit your Entry
Each poster must be delivered to Advanced IT LLC, 499 S Warren St., Suite 400, Syracuse NY 13202. You may submit as many entries as you want. All entries are due on or before Friday, April 26th, 2019. If you have any questions call (315) 849-0405.
The winner will receive a $100 VISA gift card.
