Speak Your Mind!

Speak your mind!

AIGA Baltimore will be holding Ink / Pixels 2012, a design conference for students on April 21. Since this is a conference for students only, we thought you might be excited to speak your mind. We are looking for students to submit proposals for PechaKucha talks to be given at the conference. Deadline for proposal submissions is March 12th March 21.

What is Pecha Kucha?
If you had six minutes and 20 images, what would you say? PechaKucha is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images for 20 seconds each. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images.

Here are some examples to see PechaKucha style in action:

Suggested Topics
These are just suggested topics to get you started. We are open to any topics that involve the subject of design.

  • Design and Social Media
  • Social Design
  • Design and Business

How to Submit
All submissions are due by 11:59pm, March 12th March 21.
Entries received after the deadline will not be considered.

Email the following information to pechakucha@baltimore.aiga.org:

  1. Speakers’ first and last names
  2. School(s) you attend
  3. Email address we should use to contact you if your talk is selected
  4. Title of your proposed talk
  5. Description of your talk in 300 words or less.

Selected proposals will be announced after March 19 March 23 on our blog.

You must be a student and planning to attend the conference. You do not need to be an AIGA member to present. Teams of speakers may submit one proposal if you plan to present together as a group.

We will select up to 5 presentations. It is assumed if you are submitting a proposal, that you will be the speaker(s). Selected speakers will receive a $5 reimbursement when they arrive at the conference.

Please email alissa@baltimore.aiga.org if you have any questions.
