  • DEF CON 20 Artwork Contest is Open!

    This year's DEF CON art contest is going to be just a little different.

    First, you'll only have a few weeks to submit your masterpiece. All entries must be submitted by July 6th. That's a lot less lead time, but we're pretty sure pressure sharpens the mind.

    The theme is also going to be a little different. Since this is DEF CON's 20th anniversary, we're asking for poster-style artwork that imagines DEF CON 20 years from now. What do you think we'll be sharing with each other at DEF CON 40? What will hackery look like in 2032? You're free to share your vision, whether you tend toward kittens and lollipops or brutal post-human hellscapes. We'll share the best pieces with everyone through Facebook and the DEF CON website, and we'll post the winners in a prestigious spot at the con. So don't be shy - fire up your favorite digital artmaker and give your right brain a workout.

    Submission Deadline:
    All submissions must be received by July 6, 2012 Submit entries to: neil [at] defcon dot org Submission info to include: Real name (your identity must be verifiable to collect a prize) and desired nick/handle if any; and a title and description of your piece.

    Additional Specs:

    Maximum poster size 11"x17". Final entries should be in 300pi minimum .tif or .jpg format. Vector entries can be in .ai or .eps format. Delivery is the responsibility of the entrant, if the entry is too large to email you may post it online for download.

    Prizes:
    Entries will be judged together this year, with prizes for the top three finishers.

    1st Place: Two Free admissions to DEF CON 20, and a $200 credit at the DEF CON Swag Booth.

    2nd Place: Free admission to DEF CON 20, and a $100 credit at the DEF CON Swag Booth.

    I am assuming we still use the text "Defcon 20" on the artwork with the vision of Defcon 40? Or are we going all in and putting "Defcon 40" as the text as well?
