The skilled trades provide amazing opportunities – so too, does graphic design. We are merging the two worlds through a contest! We are looking for infographic submissions.
There are 49 designated trades and 20 sub-trades in Saskatchewan, and terrific reasons to work in each trade. We’d like to share that information.
We are inviting the public to submit infographic designs that promote the skilled trades, to build your graphic design portfolio and win a prize!
Topic / Trade
Below are links to the information and data available for each trade. Each trade is a separate contest. More trades will be made available as we continue with the project. Through each link you will find information, and ideas. You may use additional icons, stock photos or photography as long as you provide the copyright/credit information. We will not reimburse you for any additional photos purchased. If you require photos, please contact us and we will determine if we have any photos available in our library for your use.
The winner will be asked to add Saskatchewan Apprenticeship’s logo to the infographic.
Judging will be completed by Saskatchewan Apprenticeship’s communications & marketing and program development teams, in conjunction with the trade board responsible for each trade.
Judges will grade infographic entries on the following points:
- Data is clear, accurate, and easy to read.
- Information is provided without being too text-heavy.
- The design is attractive and captivating.
- The infographic includes a call to action.
- Ability to be printed on 11” x 17” for distribution
All infographics should be sizable to 11 x 17 inches.
File types should be submitted in PDF format, along with the source file or a link to the editable version of the infographic.
Icons / photos cannot be brand specific.
Please send all submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org by September 18th. All submissions must be in pdf format. If possible, please also send the source file or a link to where it may be edited.
The Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission will own all property produced, and the copyrights to the work submitted for this contest.
The winner has the opportunity to include the design in his or her graphic design portfolio. The winner’s name may also be included on the infographic in size 10 point font (Designed by First Name Last Name). He or she will be recognized on Saskatchewan Apprenticeship’s website and social media, and the infographic will be made available to industry and the public for sharing and/or printing.
The winner for each trade design will also receive a $100 Visa gift card and a Saskatchewan Apprenticeship gift. Individuals may win multiple trade contests.
