Command X: Season 4 – Live Graphic Design Competition

Command X, the ultimate reality show for emerging graphic designers, is back for a fourth season this fall, giving seven up-and-coming designers the chance to win the title and break into the industry.

This is a live competition that will take place during the “Head, Heart, Hand: AIGA Design Conference” in Minneapolis, 10-12 October 2013.

This year, contestants who make it through the first round will have the chance to work with an AIGA Medalist mentor — including design legends Jessica Helfand, Jennifer Morla, Lucille Tenazas, Michael Vanderbyl and Lorraine Wild.

To apply for Command X you must:

  • Be current AIGA member
  • Be 26 or younger by the entrance deadline, 15 July 2013, 11:59 p.m. EST
  • Have a college degree

The seven selected contestants will receive a complimentary conference registration, a modest travel honorarium and three nights of hotel accommodation.

In addition to pride, glory and the unprecedented opportunity to be mentored one-on-one by an AIGA Medalist, the winning contestant will also take home a bunch of fantastic prizes!

Each contestant will receive a complimentary registration to “Head, Heart, Hand.” In addition, the winner will be awarded:

  • $1,000 in cash,
  • a Linotype Originals Library, provided by Monotype Imaging (valued at $6,000),
  • one 12-month subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud,
  • one 3-month Shutterstock subscription and
  • fame, potential job offers and much more!

Cash prizes will also be awarded to the second and third place contestants.
