The COIT 2018 Clean GIF™ Scholarship Contest


Design a GIF that showcases how to clean your space fast and effectively. Show us how you can turn a messy room into something presentable as quickly as possible.


This graphic design-centric scholarship challenges you to create a lightly animated GIF that shows us a fast way to get your space cleaned. When you are short on time, what is something unique or clever that makes your place feel or look clean quickly. Your GIF should be designed for posting on social media and can be as many frames as you like, just keep it short and sweet. We will give extra attention to clever submissions with a real sense of humor or brilliant cleaning hack. The most important criterion, though, is fantastic graphic design. The meme should be easy to read and visually appealing- something worth sharing!
