This year, SPD invites students to pick one of the five available categories and design a two-spread story for a News, How-To…, Adventure/Travel, Entertainment or Sports/Fitness magazine.

This annual competition is a special opportunity for you to win cash, exposure to a huge audience of amazing professional designers, and — perhaps best of all — a summer internship at a top magazine!

You may enter more than one design in the same or different categories.

This is SPD’s 18th annual student Design Competition. Last year the competition received hundreds of entries from 35 schools across the globe.

Each entry costs $10 (US). If you are a Student Member of the Society of Publication Designers (SPD), you are entitled three (3) free entries!

Who can enter?

This design competition is open to all undergraduate students around the world.


The First Place winner will be awarded The Mitch Shostak Award, which includes $2,500 and the summer internship.
