From September 26-28, 2023 the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) will be hosting its highly anticipated annual event, Meridian 2023, in the vibrant city of Madrid, Spain. As we gear up for the event, we’re delighted to re-introduce the Meridian Design Contest. The winner of this contest will secure an unforgettable trip to join us at Meridian 2023 in Madrid this September.
The challenge is to create a Meridian 2023 sticker design exclusively for conference attendees. Your design should capture the essence of the event's theme, "Unlocking Human Potential,” while reflecting SDF's core mission of advancing blockchain technology to create equitable access to the world’s financial systems.
Before we delve into the contest eligibility requirements, let's take a brief look back at last year's design contest and, notably, the winning design by community member Adam. His interpretation of the Meridian 2022 theme "The Urgency of Doing" impressed the SDF team, earning him a trip to Meridian in Rome, Italy.
His advice? Adam says, “The theme and location are very broad sources for inspiration, so do some background research about either to start. More importantly though, don’t hesitate to apply! Artists often don’t give themselves enough credit for their work, and your design might be exactly what they are looking for.”
"Meridian was an awesome experience. The Stellar Development Foundation team was very welcoming and put on a great event. The speakers and workshops are very informative and you have a chance to meet a lot of interesting people. The locale was also a great place to explore and get inspired!" – Adam Smith, Designer
This year, we anticipate yet another surge of innovative designs, building upon the legacy of Adam and past contributors. Now that you’re inspired, check out information about this year’s design contest and how to enter:
