Announcing the GameCamp! Logo Design Contest

GameCamp! currently doesn’t have a logo. As such, we are announcing a contest for a logo designed specifically for GameCamp! 2015, which will be used for the website, print materials, stickers, t-shirts, and other promotional materials.

This is a great opportunity for you graphic designers and visual artists out there.

And the winner will receive a $200 gift certificate in addition to some other guaranteed sweet swag.

The guidelines are as follow:

1. The design should represent the inclusive and diverse game development community we foster through GameCamp!
