This contest asks the contestant to design a poster that will be used by AFT/CTI as a component in the publicity campaign for its Test of Color Coordination.

The finished product can be either completely computer generated or completely hand rendered or a combination of both. Do not use any recognizable images. The finished piece should be two-dimensional. Winning entries will be chosen on the basis of the use of color. Think abstractly and use the power of color to illustrate your concept.
