2018 patch contest

This is a forum for general discussion of dogsled racing, with a special focus on Alaska, and is open to all. It is expected that this area will see the most activity during the months leading up to, and during the annual Iditarod sled dog race. Pictures from races can be posted here. Hosting is provided by the Bering Strait School District (BSSD), and the area is open all year. Care to be one of our volunteer moderators? Contact us!

2018 patch contest

Postby sc-race-fan » Wed Sep 06, 2017 8:50 am

Hello fellow Iditabuds!
It’s really time to start submitting your design or design idea(s) for our 2018 patch covering the Takotna Checkpoint!
This year we would like to see patch ideas celebrating this particular check point as a perennial 24 hour layover location, so "hospitality" related ideas are encouraged.

Deadline for submitting 2018 patch designs will be September 29, 2017 11:59pm ADT. That gives us plenty of time to get those ideas entered.

You don't even have to be an artist to submit a design or idea. Our patch company is great at producing the image you want from even rudimentary sketches and descriptive ideas. You could even use photos to give yourself ideas, be sure it's not a copyrighted one ;)

The only things we REQUIRE someplace on the patch design, is:

1. The Year – “2018”

2. Now that we are no longer under the BSSD, we will drop those letters. Since Johncn named us iditabuds.com we should put that on the patch.
"iditabuds.com mushing forum"

3. The name of the Checkpoint, Takotna.

4. Patch Company allows us 6 colors in our price range, so try to stick to 6 colors.

If you can include even a rough sketch of what you have in mind for your design, we can work with that. Just make it clear what you envision with a good description. The only rules of thumb to remember are to not make the design too busy with too many things, and not to have very small details, as very small things are lost in the stitching process.

Once again emwcee has agreed to be the person we send our ideas and drawings/sketches to for the contest. Send them to her by PM. She will post them in a poll, we will vote and then em lets us know who the winner is for 2018. Thank you emwcee. YAY em!


PLEASE REMEMBER that you can submit a design or idea for ANY of the checkpoints. WE now have a Moderator Lounge section where we have a separate room for each and every remaining checkpoint already set up to store your designs where nobody else can see them until they are ready to be unveiled and voted upon.

So please get your designs and ideas in as soon as possible. Remember to include your forum AND real name with your design or idea so we can contact you easily.


IMPORTANT:
PATCH DESIGN WINNER WILL NEED TO BE IN CONTACT WITH THE PATCH COMPANY TO ASSURE THAT THEIR DESIGN IS PROGRESSING TO THEIR SATISFACTION. PATCH COMPANY WILL SEND BY EMAIL PATCH ARTWORK FOR DESIGNER TO OK OR ADD SUGGESTIONS OR CHANGES TO. PROMPT REPLIES TO COMPANY ARE NEEDED TO ASSURE OUR TIMELINE FOR PATCHES TO BE COMPLETE AND DELIVERED TO MEMBERS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE

Re-cap of needed items on patch.
1. year 2018
2. iditabuds.com mushing forum
3. name of the checkpoint, Takotna
4. this year design something relating to hospitality

Let the contest begin!
