Green by Design Badge Design Contest

Calling all eco-minded icon designers! We just got word that our friends at Six Apart are sponsoring a Green by Design contest for badge designs with an environmentally friendly message, and the contest runs through June 25.

Winning badges will be featured across the TypePad network and link to One Million Acts of Green, brought to you by Cisco. One Million Acts of Green is a collaborative environmental campaign encouraging everyone to go green, one act at a time. The goal? One million acts of green because, when it comes to protecting our environment, big changes are made up of a lot of little steps.

If your badge is chosen as a winner, you'll also receive a one-year subscription to MailStopper, a junk mail–stopper service provided by Tonic. Plus, Six Apart will donate $150 to a charity in the winner’s name. (For a list of charitable organizations the winner can choose to donate to, please see the contest rules.)

Two runner-ups will also receive honorable mention, as well as one-year subscriptions to MailStopper.

Plus, when the badges receive a million impressions (and we know they will!), Six Apart will donate $1000 to The Climate Project.

Here’s what you need to know in order to submit your design:

  • The submission must include a positive environmental message.

  • The submission must be in JPEG file format.

  • The submission must be 160 x 90 pixels in size at a resolution of 72 dpi.

  • The maximum file size of the Submission is 500 kilobytes.

  • The submission must be accompanied by an email address.

  • The submission and each element thereof must be the original work of Participant.

Please email your entry to and don't forget to include your LJ user name and your email address.

The deadline for submissions is this Thursday, June 25, 2009 at 11:59:59 p.m. PDT. Winners will be announced on Everything TypePad; however, if an LJer wins, we'll also announce it here, of course.
