CFC-O announces 2014 Annual Coin Design Contest
The 2014 Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas (CFC-O) Annual Coin Design Contest is underway. The contest is open to all Department of Defense employees and their family members to create a 2014 CFC-O coin design that embodies the spirit of the campaign. The chosen design will be distributed to select contributors during the 2014 CFC-O this fall. Contest entries will be accepted through 15 March 2014.
Beginning in 2011, the CFC-O has presented contributors who meet eligibility criteria with a commemorative coin as a token of appreciation. For the 2013 campaign, the CFC-O proudly recognized Technical Sergeant Eric T. Fritz, stationed at Ramstein Air Base, Germany, as the winner of the Coin Design Contest.
Coin design submissions for the 2014 campaign season will be accepted from eligible participants (ID card required for verification) electronically in .jpg or .pdf formats. Artwork will be judged on originality, depiction of the CFC-O theme, “Give Because You Care,” and suitability for printing on the coin. Interested designers can obtain detailed instructions and submission guidelines by visiting the CFC-O website.
