MACON, Ga. - Calling all A-Sun fans to participate in the Second Annual Basketball Program Cover Design Contest!

No matter your level of artistic ability, this is your chance to display your skills and your support of the Atlantic Sun Conference. This year because the A-Sun has changed its championship format to host on campus sites, the championship theme is “Bringing the Madness to You,” and artwork from A-Sun fans will be chosen to be featured as the cover art for the conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championship programs.

Design a program cover for the men’s championship, the women’s championship, or one for each, that embraces the spirit of A-Sun championship basketball. Do not include men’s and women’s basketball in the same artwork, as they are separate events.

The program cover is a celebration of A-Sun basketball and the fervor that fans generate during their teams’ drive for postseason play, and should be your interpretation. The focus, however, should not be on one particular team but featuring the conference as a whole.
