Logo Contest: Logo Design Contests

Newspaper makes factual error about logo contest. Article comments ensue.

Monday, April 19th, 2010

The Galesburg Register-Mail didn’t check all the facts when they wrote the article that said the Galesburg Public Library was holding a logo contest. It’s a shame, too, because I had already started writing about how a library may actually be deserving of your logo design efforts… and I want those two minutes of my life back.

So, no, it’s not the library that needs the logo, it’s the Galesburg Public Library Foundation, a new non-profit group, that does. If you’re still reading this snoozer, man, maybe you’ll want to read the article that got it all wrong.

For posterity, and because I’m in this way too deep to stop now, I saved a screenshot of the debacle. Enjoy.

You're *still* reading?

Here’s a headline I like to see: Meth project revives art contest

Friday, April 16th, 2010

Kids in Montana are taking a stand against drugs — not only that, adults aren’t trying to wrangle work out of designers for free. In Montana, the Montana Meth Project is putting together an event like the one they did four years ago.

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.

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

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.
