Guidebook Cover Contest for RuffleCon 2017

Winner from 2016 Stephanie Matos

Our favorite contest returns for RuffleCon 2017. The guidebook cover contest started after our first year when an attendee sent us a piece of artwork to use for our guidebooks. After receiving such a beautiful piece of creativity, we wanted to open the floor to other artists to highlight their work as well. We are proud to support our local artists within our member community. To get involved, you need no formal experience. All you need is passion for fashion and an eye for beauty. We allow the members to vote for their favorite cover, and then pick from the top three who our cover will be.

This year, the winner of the contest will receive a Weekend Membership for RuffleCon 2018 and a consignment room credit for RuffleCon 2017! Prizes for two years in one contest.

The rules for the guidebook contest are the following:

  1. Artwork must be 5.5" x 8" ratio
  2. Artwork must be PNG, PDF, TIFF, JPG or PSD at 300dpi
  3. Artwork must be an original work

  7. Somewhere in the artwork, it must contain our official colors (you may use additional colors as well)

  8. The theme for this year is: Institute of Fashion Alchemy; in the spirit of our theme this year, we highly encourage our artists to experiment and include different kinds of fashion styles. Meld styles together and show how creative our members are during the conference with their coordinates!
