Logo Contest: Logo Design Contests

Archive for November, 2008

Are logo contests okay if you’re a college student, and it’s homework?

Sunday, November 23rd, 2008

The Delaware County, Indiana, airport took an interesting approach with the logo contest it held. Instead of blindly asking designers to provide their work for free, they pitched the contest to local college design professors, who then assigned it to their students as homework.

From the Ball State Daily News:

According to a press release, senior Visual Communications major Samantha McIntire won the design contest for the airport out of a pool of 165 entries.

McIntire was awarded with the $500 contest prize at the Airport Authority Board meeting Tuesday.

According to the press release, the contest had designs from students of Ball State and Ivy Tech Community College and Ball State professors assigned the project as an assignment.

Logo Contest Fail: Wisconsin newspaper writes about woman who wins logo contest, doesn’t publish the logo she won with.

Yesterday, the Northwestern, of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, wrote and published an article headlined Pickett woman wins Omro logo contest. I’m not linking to this article because it fails. It’s about a womain who won a logo contest. It reads:

A Pickett woman’s entry in the town of Omro’s logo contest was chosen by town residents to appear on the town’s recently launched Web site.

Nowhere in this article does it show the logo that won, or link to the town’s web site. This is a fail. More an online journalism fail than a logo contest fail, but, still, a fail.
