The 2015 abCU Submissions Guidelines (PDF) can be viewed online. This year, there are no constraints on size of artwork submissions (that’s right, you can finally make that life-size letter you’ve been dreaming of!).

abCU: Write what you Mean, and Mean what you Type 2015 is CUDO’s sixth annual typography exhibit and fundraiser. In addition to uppercase and lowercase letters of the alphabet, punctuation, and symbols, this show will feature phrases and quotes. Entries are handcrafted by local artists and designers in a variety of mediums, with emphasis on handmade processes. Past mediums have included screen printing, hand drawn illustration, letterpress, collage, sculpture, painting, and more! ABCU was created with the sentiment that artwork should be affordable and attainable. All artwork will be for sale at affordable prices during our opening reception on April 10th, 2015. Proceeds will go towards supporting programming for Champaign-Urbana Design Org (CUDO).
