UCard Design Contest

April 4, 2016

By, McKell S. Davis and Amy McIff


The University of Utah’s UCard department is getting a facelift. Not only is the UCard office being renovated but also, the beloved UCard itself is receiving a new look. The current card design has been around for nearly five years and this time, it will be up to the cardholders to determine what the new look will be.

Beginning April 4 and running though April 18, UCard will sponsor a contest to determine the card’s new design. The contest is open to all—students, alumni, faculty, staff and fans alike, provided they are 18 years of age or older. The top ten best submissions will be selected by a University committee, then presented to the public for a vote. The winner will be selected on April 29.

In addition to their design being the new face of UCard, the first place winner will receive an 9.7 inch, space gray, 128 GB, iPad Pro. The second place winner will receive a $200 gift card from the University of Utah Campus Store and the third place winner will receive a $100 Campus Store gift card.

Participants may submit their designs online at www.ucardcontest.com. After the submission period has closed, watch for updates in @TheU, the Aux News, various campus social media outlets and the university homepage to make sure your vote is counted.
