In the spirit of play, we've hosted design challenges for our audience to try offstage since we took our show on the road in 2006. This year, we have a special contest in collaboration with charity: water and Adobe to drive awareness for an important problem: access to clean water for all. Your challence is to create a graphic that represents an activity you would do to raise money for clean water. The goal is to provide new ideas for charity: water fans for fundraising and to contribute new concepts for charity: water to spread the word. In the spirit of Cut&Paste, you must create your graphic at any Cut&Paste Digital Design Tournament during the 2011-2012 Tour in a single 15-minute round. Right now, one billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in eight of us. On mycharity: water you can run, bike, give up birthday presents or just raise money to fund water projects for communities in need, and 100% of all donations directly funds water projects. In addition, every dollar donation is linked to a water project and proved with photos and GPS. Now, charity: water seeks the help of the Cut&Paste design community for fresh ideas. Rules: • You have 15 minutes to sketch your graphic at Cut&Paste • You may enter multiple times, but each entry is allotted only 15 minutes • You may use any colors you like. You are not limited to a single color as in the current mycharity:water campaign Judging & Prizes: After Cut&Paste’s final tour event, all submissions from all tour events will be evaluated by charity:water and one single winner will be selected. The winner will receive the opportunity to work with charity:water on a campaign to promote clean water, which will be recognized by charity:water, Adobe, and Cut&Paste. Tools: At each tour event, Adobe is providing Apple iPad 2 tablets with the Adobe Ideas app. Adobe Ideas is your digital sketchbook, letting you capture and explore ideas anywhere you go. The app allows for multiple layers and provides a quick approach for iPad-based vector drawing. Cut&Paste will also provide Wacom Bamboo styluses for easy drawing.
