SLAS2018 Student T-Shirt Design Contest

Students: Do you have a creative jones that deserves to be expressed?  How about a creative idea that captures your unique perspective on life sciences discovery and technology?  Here’s your chance to showcase your creativity to an audience of your peers and practicing life sciences professionals.  Consider submitting an entry in the SLAS2018 Student T-shirt Design Contest! Doing so can earn you the attention and admiration of your contemporaries, as well as the chance to see your creativity captured for posterity.

The winning design will be imprinted on to T-shirts that will be distributed to the first 75 student attendees at SLAS2018. Note: This T-shirt giveaway/contest is in addition to the regular SLAS T-shirt issued to full conference registrants from the SLAS Booth in the exhibition.

The winning designer also receives a $50 Gift Card and free SLAS Premier Membership (valued at $70) for one year. Designs will be judged by members of the SLAS Student and Early Career Advisory Committee.

The contest guidelines are broad in an effort to be inclusive and to encourage maximum creativity.  Imagery, words or a combination thereof can be used.  Ultimately, submissions should aim for the perfect blend of science, humor and creativity. See below for competition guidelines:

  • Designs should align with the SLAS mission and/or life sciences technology and discovery.
  • Designs should not be too complex – it must be transferable to a T-shirt.
