DGC Show 14 – Poster Design Competition

Calling all graphic designers / artist / illustrator / creative types!

We are holding another poster design competition to promote our upcoming showcase (DGC Dance Show 14) in November :)

The winning design will receive a £60 voucher for DGC kpop dance classes plus 2 tickets to DGC Show 14, as well as having their design featured on all promotional material for the show (e.g. mailing list, Instagram & Facebook pages / events).

Competition guidelines / design brief

DGC Dance is a community of passionate K-Pop dancers and we run fun, friendly & relaxed K-Pop dance classes in central London with regular student dance showcases.

For this competition, you need to create a poster that will be used primarily in digital format on our website, social media (e.g. Instagram & Facebook) and sent to our mailing list. Target audience is fans of K-Pop and dance and the performers’ family and friends.

For the poster you need to:
– capture the sense of the fun, friendly & relaxed atmosphere of the DGC community, classes & shows
– choose a good combination of typography, colours (& optionally any photos) which make the text clear & clean so it’s easy to read
– use all lowercase for the website address

The poster must include the following details (event name, event description, venue, date & time & website address):

DGC Dance Show 14
London K-Pop Dance Showcase
Stratford Circus Arts Centre
