  • DEF CON 19 Artwork Contest is Open!

    The DEF CON Artwork Contest is again underway! This year's theme is reminiscent of those 60's and 70's spy movies and TV shows like "The Man from U.N.C.L.E", "Our Man Flint", and "James Bond", with a hacker angle and a little grit. We have dubbed this theme "Haxploitation".

    Think of those montage movie posters that have the hero surrounded by fem-bots and the villain looking down on them, plotting their destruction. Use your imagination! You are free to choose your subject, but be sure to incorporate hacker related aspects into your piece, such as tech, locksport, robotics, espionage, etc. You can use 21st century tech, but keep the overall feel retro. Use of the DEF CON logos is allowed, but will not be provided by DEF CON.


    Objective
    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to create a poster, t-shirt design, sticker, or wallpaper for DEF CON 19 in a 60's/70's spy theme codenamed "Haxploitation".

    T-shirt design: No larger than 9"x14" portrait. Specify shirt color, and be sure to use the shirt color in the design. No more than 4 spot colors can be used. Include a mockup file to show placement on a shirt along with artwork to size it would be printed.

                  I spoke with neil earlier today online, and he is super busy. I would not expect a reply from him until after Monday.
