This is the contest for the 2018 design of our annual ballet school calendar :)
The theme of this year's calendar is "of Elves and Men" (German "Von Elfen und Menschen"). All proceeds go to an organisation caring for children with a genetic skin disease called "Epidermolysis bullosa". If you want to know more about this terrible, yet uncurable disease you may watch the documentary "The boy whose skin fell of" (available on youtube).
We do not want you to work for free, so we did not enter as a charitable organisation. Please understand that we can not pay you more for the project than the amount specified below, as we want to help the organisation as much as possible. Thank you!
_For the first round of the contest, you only need to show us one month as an example of your work and style. The photo below is for the month of April._
By taking part in this contest, you confirm that after the contest finale for the total amount displayed as prize money you are willing to deliver a printing file consisting of:
o 12 (twelve) calendar pages (German language and German holidays)
o cover page
o 2 (two) descriptive pages
In the attachment we are adding the specific printing details of our printer. Please use the mentioned measurements as a reference. Thank you! (attached ''Monatswandkalender....pdf'')
On the photos we took you will see some girls and women wearing white ballet skirts. In your design, you should make them look like elves by giving them nice wings (maybe colorfull? maybe clear? we welcome your ideas). The other people on the photos play the part of the "normal people", hence the title "of elves and men". Maybe it would be also possible for you to add a filter to make the atmosphere more "magic" and to put a bit more focus on the persons.
Please include the ballet school logo in the design? Maybe in a corner.
The photoshopped images are needed for the cover (image file "cover") and the monthly calendar (image files with months' names).
There are an additional 2 pages with descriptions:
o one for the project itself (image file "description")
o one to introduce some people with the illness (image files "introduction xx)
If you want to, we can introduce you and/or your company on the description page. You may include your logo and contact details on the page.
Please use a calendar table in which one can write birthdays or important dates? Please include German holidays, which you can look up here: https://www.schulferien.org/kalende…_2018.html
