The educational sessions you present are the cornerstone for sharing and gaining knowledge at our regional conference. These sessions provide opportunities for attendees to connect, gain ideas, and discuss challenges that our campuses are facing together. Presenting at a regional conference is a great professional and leadership development opportunity that allows you to share your knowledge with others across the region.

Steal this Idea

This ACUI tradition annually seeks the year’s best marketing and promotional ideas in the region to present at the conference. This is an excellent opportunity to show off the talent of our region’s staff and student graphic designers, as well as share ideas for other campuses. Awards are given at the regional conference to both student and staff designers with the strongest pieces in 15 different categories (logos/brand identity; cards/invitations/postcards; print advertisements; brochures/pamphlets; multipage documents; posters; promotional campaigns; apparel/clothing; website; motion graphics/animation; video promotion; banners/large-scale media; signs/signage; maps/directories; open category).

At the conference, a Best in Show award will honor the top idea presented. Winning entries will be chosen by a panel of judges before the start of the conference and will be notified by the Conference Planning Team.

Entries must have been produced between July 1, 2017, and August 31, 2018, by staff and students working within a student union or student activities department. The link for submissions will be available soon.
