IT'S TIME FOR THE
20th Anniversary Logo Contest!
!

*** $250 Cash Prize ***


Enter via email (see below) by Sunday, Dec 3, 2023

Welcome to the IAP 20th Anniversary Logo Design Contest. You design it, and the members vote on it. The winning logo ends up on any items we might produce for our anniversary celebration ("The Bash") in February 2024.

We're looking for logos which:

  • Have clean, simple lines in black and white
  • Have elements of pens, the IAP, pens, ink, penmaking, etc.
  • Contains the number "20" or "XX", or the word "twenty", "twentieth", or some other commonly recognized symbol for 20
  • Has some reference to our anniversary. Such as the phrase "20th Anniversary", or "20 Years of Penmaking", or "2004-2024" or some other indication that we are commemorating another year of existence of the IAP
  • Have an aspect ratio no greater than 1.5:1 (The larger dimension no more than 1.5 times the smaller dimension.)
Selection Process
  • The winning logo will be selected by a single 7 day vote by the members
  • If more than 10 logos are entered, an additional, 5-day semi-final vote may be added to down-select a smaller number of entries
  • If fewer than 5 logos are entered, the contest may be canceled, or one of the submitted logos may be chosen by me, or a committee of members I select
  • If you win, we may ask you to tweak your design slightly to fit our needs
The Prize

The winner will receive:

  • $250 USD delivered via PayPal
  • Your choice of two of any items we may produce with your logo.
Submitting Your Entry

Entries will be accepted beginning Oct 22, 2023 until approximately midnight US Eastern time on December 3, 2023

DO NOT POST YOUR ENTRY ANYWHERE!!! Submit it by email as described below.

  • You may submit up to two entries. If you submit two, they should be substantially different from each other
  • There is no fee for entry
  • Entries become the property of Penturners.org, LLC
  • Submit your entry by email to: logo20 ("at" penturners.org). Please put "2024 Logo Contest Entry" in the subject field of your email. I acknowledge all entries by replying to your submission email. If you don't hear from me within 24 hours of receipt, contact me
  • PLEASE include your IAP member name with your submission!
  • If you submit more than one entry, please send them in separate emails. Once you submit an entry, please don't send a revision in a later email. Make sure what you submit is your final entry
  • Entries should be jpg images of your entry, at 1280px in the largest dimension.
  • As prior logos have done, you may incorporate the IAP logo into your submission
  • Hand-drawn logos will not be accepted this year.
  • Logos must be submitted as jpegs, but we would appreciate a vector file if your logo wins and we produce items for sale.
  • Only members of The IAP/penturners.org are eligible
  • Members of the management team and moderators are not eligible
Additional Information:
  • The logo you submit will be voted upon exactly as you submit it. We won't do any cleanup or tweaking until after the winner is selected.
  • If your submission includes any elements which are not your own creation, you must have full rights to distribute the elements included with your design.
  • The submitted logos must be black and white, not gray scale or color. (If we produce items which we decide would benefit from color in the logo, we'll ask you to add color.)
  • HERE is the vector file of our web logo. A "simplified" version of our logo is available. It's the one we use for embroidery and it has fewer lines inside the oval. You are welcome to use that one instead of the "standard" version linked above. (If you incorporate our logo, I strongly suggest the simplified version. It's much cleaner looking on items.)
If you have questions or concerns, Start a conversation with me, or post here (If you post, please don't quote this entire text!)

GOOD LUCK TO ALL WHO ENTER!!

Quick bump to put this back in the current feed... Get those creative juices flowing and come up with a logo for our 20th Anniversary.

While I'm thinking about it, I'll mention that I don't expect we're going to be running logo contests and a full bash every year after our 20th. I attend some professional conferences that occur every other year, so maybe we'll try that. Or maybe every 5 years, but that seems a little infrequent.

Anyway, quit surfing IAP and get to work on those logos! :cool:

Hi Jeff. I was interested in submitting. I consulted my brother who does this sort of stuff and he suggested that I download Canva or something like that. I played around with it and couldn't turn out anything but stock images - which is hardly anything I would feel good about calling my own. I will not be submitting.

No problem, Tony. I am similarly challenged with any sort of graphics.
