2012 Walk/Run Logo Contest
by Tyler Johnson
Every year the Miriam Project has a 5k walk/run and 10k run fundraiser that helps raise support for our services year-round. This year, in anticipation of the big event, we are holding a walk/run logo contest. We have always had a logo for the event each year, but they had previously all been created in-house. It seems natural that on the 10th year of the fundraiser we mix it up a bit. A logo contest will not only provide this year’s event with a great new design for our t-shirts, mugs, and promotional materials, but it will also allow the community and our supporters to be more involved with the fundraiser.
About the Contest:
We will be accepting entries for the logo contest from January 23, 2012 to March 2, 2012. The goal is to design a logo for the 2012 walk/run which will be held in September. The submitted entries will be judged by a panel here at The Miriam Project, and the winner will receive $150, two t-shirts and two mugs with the winning design, and two entries into this year’s walk/run!
Steps to Enter:
- Carefully read through the official contest rules.
- Create an awesome logo for this years walk/run.
- Submit your logo in the correct format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Wait for the contest winner to be announced in March!
Not an artist, but still want to be a part?
We have heard many requests from our supporters asking how they could get more involved with The Miriam Project; now is your chance! The only way this contest will succeed is if we have the support of others to help spread the word. Whether you are interested in entering the contest or not, we are confident that you likely know someone who would be interested. Whether that’s a friend, relative, or co-worker who enjoys doing graphic design as a profession or hobby, why not share this opportunity with them? There are a lot of easy ways you can let them know too. Sharing this article, the flyer posted on our Facebook page, or even just a link to the contest’s official rules can help spread the word. These things can be shared on social networking sites (like Facebook or Twitter), in an email, by texting, or through good old-fashioned word of mouth. Trying to get the word out not only supports the contest and the annual fundraiser, but it helps spread the word about The Miriam Project too!
