Design the CSTS Art for 2018

It’s that time again.The Can’t Stop The Serenity promotional art contest is back for 2018!

But it’s not the same old contest. This year, as you know, we have a new CSTS icon, the result of a contest in the Fall. This new icon will be part of all art going forward, starting with this year’s.

All the details you need to know can be found here but briefly (and in no particular order):

  • The art may be used in a variety of fashions. The more versatile it is, the better.
  • It must be your own artwork and inspired by the movie Serenity.
  • Because this is about Equality Now and Peace in the ‘Verse, there should be no overt violence portrayed within the art.
  • There is a limit of 3 submissions per artist.


  • Each entry should include the following:
    • An isolated version of the logo (no background images)
    • A black and white version of the logo
    • A mockup of the logo as a poster (may contain additional text and artwork)
    • A mockup of the logo as a T-shirt (may contain additional text and artwork)
    • A mockup of the logo as an embroidered patch (may contain additional text and artwork)
  • You must use the new CSTS logo and have it displayed predominantly within the piece you are submitting. You can download various versions of the logo here. These are provided as outlined files, and the official color values are provided.
  • For acceptable file types, printing requirements, etc., please see the full contest rules.


  • Submissions will be accepted beginning 28 February 2018, and must be received no later than 3 March 2018 by 11:59 P.M. PST in order to be considered for this contest.
  • You may submit up to three pieces for consideration.
  • All entries and questions should be submitted to
  • All entries which meet the guidelines will be posted on the official CSTS website to be voted on by the general public. We will publicize the voting in advance. In the event of a tie, the Global Steering Committee and Global Team will choose the winning piece.

For all the rules, regulations and other red tape-type things, please see the full contest rules.

Good luck! We can’t wait to see your submissions!
