Logo Design Contest

Our current logo has served us well, however, as the Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition continues its journey forward as an independent organization, we have decided that it is time to refresh our image. The Board of Directors has full faith that we have many talented members in the Coalition, so we are conducting a logo design contest. This new logo will be used in all future branding of the PPSC including being on the website and all official forms and brochures. Rules and guidelines for the contest are as follows:

Design: The design should be professional, modern and project the statewide nature of the Coalition. The full name of the organization should be included (Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition). Any phrases or words that enhance the logo and image may be included at the artist's discretion. All images included in the design must be the original work of the submitter and cannot have been published at any time prior to this contest. This includes, but is not limited to photos, graphics and clip art.

Color: Any individual color or combination of colors may be used. Remember though, this new logo will drive all future design and will provide the Coalition with its "colors" moving forward. Regardless of which colors are used the logo should translate to a black and white version easily and clearly.

Size: The logo should lend itself to being printed and published in many different sizes. It is likely the logo will be printed on something as small as a business card or as large as a sign or banner. The judging committee will take into consideration how the logo will look in a range of sizes.

Format: Please submit in JPG format and save as your name so that we can match designs with the correct submitter.

Other Rules: The contest is open to everyone ... members and non-members alike, so feel free to spread the word to friends. There is a limit of three entries per individual. Be sure to submit your best designs.

Judging: A panel of Board Members will review all submissions and choose the top three designs. The top three designs will then be made public and a period of online voting will occur. The design that receives the most votes will win and become the new logo of the PPSC. The PPSC reserves the right to not select any entries and retain its current logo should it be determined by the panel of Board Members that there is no suitable design submitted.

Terms: The winner agrees that the logo and all files associated with it will become the property of the Pennsylvania Peer Support Coalition and the PPSC will be its rightful owner. As such the artist recognizes that the logo will be used in public and internal publications. The PPSC also reserves the right to alter and reproduce the image at its discretion.

Award: Bragging rights. Top three designs will also be highlighted at a future PPSC event.

Submitting: Please submit designs accompanied by the below entry form to by May 31, 2014. The PPSC reserves the right to extend the deadline.
