The President, Directors and Officers of The Explorers Club are pleased to announce a Club-wide competition for the design of the 2012 Membership Card.  All Members, except serving Directors and Officers, are invited and encouraged to submit their photographs, original art or design work to an independent panel of Explorers Club judges.  The winning Member and Chapter will be heralded at ECAD and acknowledged in the Explorers Log.

The panel is searching for a striking image for the front side of our Membership Card that is befitting the world’s foremost group of explorers.  It is only appropriate that the image should be the work of one of our own.  So sift through your archives and send in those images that you believe would be suitable for consideration.  Please note you do not have to be a professional photographer or artist to compete.  Work of so-called ‘amateurs’ is greatly encouraged!

Entries must be received by January 16, 2012, emailed to Marc Bryan-Brown, MN’95, Chairman - Art Selection Committee at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)  If any Member has technical issues concerning scanning or resizing his/her image(s), please contact Marc Bryan-Brown directly.

General Parameters, Rules and Guidelines:

+ Competition is open to all Members except serving Directors and Officers.
+ Judges have been appointed for their design/photographic experience.
+ The card is small so the image needs to be graphically strong.
+ The image can be of virtually anything, and need not include the Club Flag or show Explorer Club Members.  It just has to visually speak to exploration.
+ The club will require exclusive use of the winning image for the membership card and a release will need to be signed to this end by the copyright holder.
+ Each member may submit up to three images.
+ The panel, if necessary, will select a suitable entry from the Club’s archives if the entries are not adequately representative of The Explorers Club.
