 Vertex Sticker Design Program

The Vertex Sticker Design Contest is a call for designers who are inspired by Colorado and new frontiers to create the most widely distributed piece of art in the first year of the Vertex Story.

If your sticker design is selected you will receive two (2) Base Camp Tickets to Vertex and your artwork will be distributed to 2016 festival attendees!


One winner will receive:

  • Two (2) Base Camp Tickets to Vertex 2016
  • Your sticker printed as a gift for festivalgoers
  • An announcement of your sticker being selected!


Submissions will be accepted for review May 24-June 5 2016. The final art will be selected and announced in June of 2016.

  • Judgement method: By selecting and comparing best stickers
  • Judged on:
    • 50% Art
