The Moth GrandSLAM Trophy Design Contest! | Put your creative brain to the test: design The Moth’s first-ever GrandSLAM trophy!

Are you skilled in vector design or eager to try a new challenge? Send us your vision for what the Moth GrandSLAM trophy should look like. Our favorite design will receive an honorarium of $200, their work will be featured on our website and their name will be printed on trophies given out to all the 2015 international GrandSLAM winners.

The Details:
