Teams will be challenged to redesign an ordinary, bland utility statement making it more functional, aesthetically pleasing and expanding its purpose to include making the communication a marketing opportunity. It is the responsibility of the team to research and determine how to integrate various options and enhancements while redesigning the statement into a final submission.  The statement needs to be accessible via print, web and mobile. 

“Each year the students continue to amaze. Their extensive research, creativity and innovative approach have impressed our panel of judges over the years. We look forward to seeing this year’s entries,” says Skip Henk, President and CEO of Xplor International.  “Special thanks to Quadient, who has sponsored the competition since its inception four years ago. Their support and generosity allow Xplor to recognize the next generation of professionals and enable members of the winning team to attend the conference and present their winning design.”

Winners are selected based on their team’s presentation and explanation of the redesign to a panel of judges. Along with a cash prize, the winning team will be presented a plaque at XPLOR20 during the awards ceremony on April 14th.  Each member on the team will receive a complimentary full-conference pass and the opportunity to present their design to XPLOR20 attendees in a 25-minute educational session.
