YOUTH FREE EXPRESSION

LOGO DESIGN CONTEST

Every year, NCAC’s Youth Free Expression Program (YFEP) invites young filmmakers to create a short film on a contemporary First Amendment issue. Over the past 15 years, the Youth Free Expression Film Contest has showcased the films of dozens of teens whose vision and respect for free expression will inspire generations to come. NCAC’s Youth Free Expression Program Film Contest is made possible by generous support from the New York Film Academy. For 2021, the film contest needs a new logo that represents what free expression is about.

This will be the third and final contest in NCAC’s Let Me Speak Design Campaign. 

CONTEST DETAILS

 The National Coalition Against Censorship is holding a logo contest open to everyone. They are looking for submissions of original artwork that speak to the importance of self-expression-and opposing censorship. 

After the contest ends there will be a voting period, where everyone will be invited to vote on their favorite designs. The voting will help decide the finalists. Members of NCAC’s team will select the Grand Prize Winner. 

The Grand Prize winner will receive $250 in cash and credit for the logo.

Register and join the NCAC Benefit Event on November 11th to find out the winners of all 3 contests!  Register here!
