Logo Contest

The Marblehead Festival of Arts invites professional and nonprofessional individuals who currently reside, work, attend a school, or belong to an arts association in Essex County, to submit entries for the 2024 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, 2023. The winner will be announced at the Logo Premiere Party in January, 2024 and will receive a prize of $150.

The winning logo is then given wide visibility on the 2024 Festival's logo products—shirts, T-shirts, hats, wine glasses, and other memorabilia—available at the Festival's Logo Store. The new logo is also on Festival posters, the printed Festival Program, and the Festival Website.

During the July 4th weekend Festival [July 4 – 7, 2024], the semifinalist and finalist designs are on display at the Logo Exhibit. Past logo winners can be viewed below and you can submit your entries for the 2024 contest here

Deadline is Sunday, November 26th at 5:00pm.

For the design requirements of the logo and other information, please refer to this document :

All entries have to be submitted through the aforementioned Festival’s website. A $10 fee must accompany all the entries. You can submit up to three entries.

Good luck, and we’re looking forward to seeing your creativity shine!
