Design Requirements

The design must contain the theme of the State of Maryland, voting, or elections in the State of Maryland or the United States. The design should NOT contain any text; submitted designs with text will be disqualified. The dimensions of the design should fit on a circular sticker two inches in diameter. Please note: if the submitted artwork does not fit in a circular sticker, it will be cropped to fit a circle. To accommodate print quality, designs should be submitted as vector files, or high-resolution JPG files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi. The Sponsor may require the original artwork of the finalists to be submitted for print quality purposes, therefore, contestants should maintain their original artwork.

Selected artwork will fit the circle inside of the “I VOTED TODAY” circular border.
