TAG  The Advertisers Guild

Advertising Display Design Contest Sponsored by The Advertisers Guild

The Advertising Guild (TAG) welcomes you to join us in the month of July for the 2008 Advertising Display Design Contest. As members of TAG understand that many residents would like to see different types of advertising displays other than the ‘floating blocks’ displays currently used. In the interest of being responsible advertisers, TAG sends out the call for designers to submit their best advertising display ideas, with publicity and prizes for the winners.
