Two Sides US, Chicago, Ill., USA, this week announced its Ecographic Challenge, a contest to develop an engaging infographic that clearly presents facts about the sustainability of print and paper. The contest is open to amateur and professional graphic designers who are U.S. residents and are at least 18 years of age at the time of entry. Individual and team entries will be accepted.

"Two Sides is reaching out to the country's most creative talent to help us promote the sustainability of print and paper in a way that's fun and easy to understand," says Two Sides President Phil Riebel. "We're providing all of the facts and asking contestants to create an ‘ecographic' that will help correct common misperceptions about the sustainability of printed communications, like the ones perpetuated by misleading environmental marketing claims that urge people to switch from paper to electronic communications to protect the environment."

Two Sides will award one $2,500 cash prize to the winning individual or team. Entries will be accepted until 9 p.m. EDT on August 16. The winner will be announced at the Print13 Conference in Chicago on September 10, and will be acknowledged in all published versions of the ecographic.

More information, including complete rules, ecographic specifications, and an entry form are available online, or by email.

Support for the Ecographic Challenge is provided by the following Two Sides members: Ariva, Boise Inc., Domtar Corp., Lindenmeyr Munroe, PrintMediaCentr, Unisource Worldwide, UPM, and Western States Envelope & Label.
