2023 Cropped Design Competition (Kerned)
No, no we didn't mess up the name! This is our 2022 Cropped Competition hosted in 2023!
The time has come, the time to get CROPPED! Join AMA Members and like-minded marketing professionals in a casual, fun, and competitive atmosphere to celebrate all things branding. AMA Lincoln is bringing you the most thrilling graphic design challenge the Midwest has ever seen! Modeled after the hit TV show, Chopped, top designers will compete in this live challenge on February 2nd from 5-8 pm at the Bourbon Theatre in Lincoln.
Five designers will call on their creative skills as they face off against one another to prepare an AMA-zing design collateral trifecta! The catch? Each round is a surprise collateral and you will need to use the materials and instructions provided. At the end of each round, a panel of guest judges “crops” one designer who fell shy in terms of brand, thoughtfulness, and creativity. The last designers standing take home bragging rights and a cash prize!
So get ready to wield your design skills while growing your network with a little friendly competition, all in the name of helping a small, local business.
