The Ilen CityOne Limerick Design Competition invites designers to submit graphic designs for the sails and hull of a new CityOne performance sailing dinghy.
Design submissions should express and explore the CityOne’s dynamic, energetic, fast and modern clean lines. The graphic solution for these dinghies should be conducive to longevity of style, and be imagistically strong when viewed close-up, or at a distance in motion on a shimmering river.
A high level of creative freedom is encouraged – bold shapes and strong colours seem best suited for application by spray-painting to the hull, and painting to the sail fabric. Photographic imagery and complex drawn shapes are not suited to the specific limits of conventional and spray painting.
This exciting and challenging competition is open to all designers – to embrace the task of designing a concept for application to the hull and sails of the CityOne Limerick dinghy. Each single or group entry must submit only one design.
All designs must be submitted using the official CityOne Competition Template in a scalable vector graphic format (EPS or PDF). All designs should be original artworks entirely of the designers’ own work, not contain any copyrighted material and should not have been previously published in print, internet, social media etc.
Three designs will be chosen by a judging panel and each single participant and group design chosen will receive 500 Euro and enjoy the opportunity of seeing their designs creatively applied to the City One sail and hull before they take to the water for racing on the River Shannon, Limerick.
The judging panel may also award additional non-monetary, special mentions.
