Call for entries to the 52nd Festival of Arts Logo Contest
The Marblehead Festival of Arts invites professional and nonprofessional individuals who reside in, work in or belong to an arts association in Essex County to submit entries for the 2017 Logo Contest. This long-standing competition, as old as the Festival itself, produces a one-of-a-kind design to symbolize each year’s event.
From the entries, judges select fifteen to twenty designs as semifinalists; and from the semifinalists, select several finalists for presentation to the public. The public then determines the winner by ballot during December. The winner will be announced at the Logo Premiere Party in January and will receive a prize of $150.
The winning logo is then given wide visibility in the 2017 Festival’s logo products—shirts, T-shirts, hats, wine glasses, and other memorabilia—available at the Festival’s Logo Store. The new logo also adorns Festival posters, the printed Festival Program, and the Festival Web site.
During the July 4th weekend Festival, the semifinalist and finalist designs are on display at the Logo Exhibit. Past logo winners can be viewed in the Logo History section of the Web site: www.MarbleheadFestival.org/logo-contest/.
Deadline is Sunday, November 27th at 5:00pm. All entries should be dropped off at Abbot Public Library, 235 Pleasant Street, Marblehead 01945. Please note that the Library will be closed on Friday, November 25th and open on that Sunday. Please check the library’s website for hours.
