ItBoat regularly enables people to express themselves creatively in areas directly related to the sea and boats. We've only recently hunted sharks with a feather. Now it's sharks and brushes.
Together with the National Class Association of EM-Ca yachts. and design portal Designet.ru in conjunction with All-Russian Sailing Federation we are pleased to announce the eM-Ca Garden Cup. Its purpose is to find a unique graphic design for a sailing yacht of national class "EM-Ka", where not only numerous competitions among amateurs and professionals are held, but also many newcomers learn. Even children are racing on it. The creators of the new yacht and all who managed to try their hand under its sails are confident in its great potential and future mass popularity. So are we.
As the national monotype is supposed to be, all EM-Ka class yachts are absolutely the same. They have the same hull, sails, equipment - absolutely everything. The only thing that yachts can brightly differ from each other is their graphic design. Here, actually, the competition begins, which we are proud to present as information partners. At the disposal of the participants of the eM-Ka Grades Cup contest will be both hull and sails of the eM-Ki - graphics can be applied to all these vast surfaces.
The conditions of the contest are simple - the task of the participants is graphic design of the national class "EM-Ka" dinghy (hull and sails). Apart from the obvious prohibitions on obscene images and inscriptions, as well as on illegal symbols, there are no restrictions on creative research. Not at all. Even using the eM-Ka logo is only possible, but not obligatory. The winning project will be implemented and shown to the general public at the awards ceremony. The proud author of the masterpiece will be able to personally try out his brainchild on the water and appreciate how much power of art gives the boat speed.
