Participating teams consist of up to five Xplor student members from the same university. A team can only submit one entry, but the university can have multiple teams. Each student can only participate on one team.

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 re-designing the statement into a final submission.  The statement needs to be accessible via print, web and mobile.

“The talent these students have is amazing. Their ideas and designs they presented the last two years impressed our judges as well as those who attended their session at the 2018 Xplor conference. We look forward to this year’s entries,” says Skip Henk, President and CEO of Xplor International, “Also, a big thank you to Quadient for their support as the competition sponsor. Their generosity allows Xplor to offer a cash prize which enables members of the winning team to attend XPLOR19 and present their winning statement.”

Winners are selected based on their team’s presentation and explanation of the redesign to a panel of judges. The winning team will be presented a plaque at XPLOR19 during the awards ceremony on April 23rd and a cash prize. Each member on the team will receive a complimentary full-conference pass and the opportunity to present their design to XPLOR19 attendees in a 25-minute educational session.
