RSVP Design Contest!

UCLA was the site of the first reported cases of AIDS in June 1981, and currently has some of the most cutting-edge research on the planet including HIV gene therapy, metabolic disorders, HIV-related cancers and vaccine research.

The UCLA HIV Research Study Volunteer Project (RSVP) is like a dating site for research study volunteers and investigators, finding their perfect matches.

RSVP is open to men, women, transgender men, and transgender women over the age of 18 who are HIV positive or HIV negative. Our studies range from focus groups and surveys to gene and stem cell therapies and everything in-between. We are searching for all kinds of people -- from those who are co-infected with hepatitis, to people considered "long-term non-progressors" or "exposed uninfected" and people who are just your average person living with HIV.

RSVP was just launched in March 2012 and we are looking for a logo design for our program. Ideally, the colors of the logo are blue and gold (go Bruins!!!) but can be shown in black and white if needed.  We would love to see something new and bold - preferably without red ribbons.  Help us find a great logo and the prize-winning entry receives a t-shirt with your design and a $100 Amazon gift card!

Designs should be submitted to Faith Landsman, Director of RSVP, by midnight, April 30, 2012.

Official Rules

1. Entries must be submitted as a scalable vector graphic in .eps or Photoshop and also as a .jpg.  We are scientists, not graphic designers, we just need to be able to open the file!

2. Entries must include the name, age, and email address of the entrant.

3. The logo must include the letters "RSVP" and can (but does not need to) include the entire name "UCLA HIV Research Study Volunteer Project"

4. All work must be original.

5. The winning entry will become the sole property of UCLA RSVP and will be displayed publicly.

6. Entries will be judged by the staff and faculty of RSVP.

7. Entries will all be acknowledged as we receive them.

Thank you so much to all who enter!!!
