Help me out with this collaborative project

As part of an upcoming exhibition, artists are invited to participate by creating trading card designs for The Fitcilitator, a superhero who helps people of all ages pass the President's Fitness Challenge.

The front of the card should feature an image of The Fitcilitator, and the back should have some sort of accompanying text, whether it is recounting a piece back-story about The Fitcilitator (powers, weaknesses, nemeses, alter ego, side kick, lair, etc), some important statistics, or something else entirely. Artists have the freedom to make up anything they like. The only known facts about The Fitcilitator include her attire (see reference photo album listed below) and her goal, which is helping people with the President's Challenge.

The 10 best cards will be published as a limited edition set of trading cards, and those 10 artist will receive a set of the trading cards, while the top 25 designs will be published in an exhibition catalog. The trading cards measure 2.5"x3.5". Your image file should measure 2.75"x3.75" and allow .125" on each side for trim. The recommended file formats are PSD, AI or TIFF. The recommended resolution is 1024x768 or 300 DPI at 2.75"x3.75".

Please view the online gallery of source images for inspiration.

There is no submission fee. Please email all submissions, along with your full name, to The Fitcilitator, , no later than April 20, 2010. Please email The Fitcilitator if you have any questions or concerns:
