It’s time for the CSTS 2016 Logo Art Contest!

That’s right, it’s time for the Promotional Art Contest! Do you think you have what we’re looking for?

As we go into our eleventh year, Can’t Stop the Serenity is looking for a new logo. The logo will be featured on posters, t-shirts and will be a focal point for every event. The winning artwork will help build excitement and draw people into theaters around the world, and will be prominently featured on our website and social media outlets.


The Short and Sweet of It

  1. Anything you submit must be your own artwork, your own designs. Any stock imagery you incorporate into your entry must be accompanied by documentation showing you have permission to use and reproduce it. This goes for any copyrighted imagery as well. It will not be allowed and will disqualify your submission.
  2. No violence portrayed in the artwork, please. Equality Now is about bringing a halt to the violence and harm throughout the ‘verse, so let’s agree leave the reavers out in the black.
  3. A limit of 3 submissions per artist, please.
  4. The winner’s artwork will be used by CSTS for the purposes of the 2016 CSTS screenings and events, and for additional promotional purposes until the 2017 artwork has been chosen. No other compensation shall be awarded to the winner.
