I was just browsing when I found a couple of design competitions that I thought I'd share with you all:
Egency want artists/illustrators/designers to transform "ho-hum" flyers, brochures and posters into unique, well-crafted applied-artwork.
They are challenging you to enter original, creative designs for flyers, appointment cards, posters, etc. that fit one of these professions:
* Party or Event Planning
* Professional Services (such as florist, cafe, shop, attorney, accountant)
Applicants may submit as .jpg, .gif, .png, .pdf, .psd, or InDesign and the deadline for set-one entries is January 31st 2011.
Three top winners will receive their choice of either Wacom Intuos 4 XL, Wacom CintiQ12 WX, a Macbook or $1,000 cash.
Seven additional winners will receive a Booq laptop bag.
All 10 winners will be featured in a press release announcing the results of Egency's Design Challenge.

The next competition from the New Zealand Book Council is to design a conceptual book cover for "Parade", by Māori author Patricia Grace.
There is a lot more background information about the competition and the book including the full text on the website here:
The deadline is January 15th 2011 and the prize is $1500NZ/$1150US/£725 plus having your design published.
