ART LOGO CONTEST

OPEN TO ANY ARTIST LIVING IN THE MISSION DISTRICT.

CLOSING DATE: Midnight JANUARY 10.
Prize: $500


We want to develop logos for the beats on Mission Loc@l. Look at the small boxes that now have thumbnail photos for each story on the home page.  Instead of photos in these boxes, we would like logos with a consistent look that indicate each beat. They are:

1. Crime (Trouble)
2. Politics (Politiquería)
3. Art
4. Religion
5. Education (School Days)
6. Property
7. Money
8. Humor (Y Qué)
9. Notes from The Reporters & Writers (Madhacks)
10. Environment & Health (Urban Air)
11. Immigration (Borders)

We would also like logos to indicate
12. Video
13. Slideshow
14. Multimedia
15. Audio
16. Feature Read—a longish narrative piece that will take some time.
17. Profile—a profile of a local person.
18. Exposé—a project/investigative report

The winner will earn $500 and rights to the logos will go to Mission Loc@l. The artist will be credited in on the About page.

The 18 logos should easily identify the beat or story type and as a group, the logos should have some unifying theme.
The 11 beat logos should view well in the 100 x 60 px space where we now have thumbnail photos on the home page.
The 7 story type logos (video, slideshow, multimedia, audio, feature read, profile and exposé) should be small enough to put at the start of a headline that has a font-size of 20.

Please Submit entries in .ai or .eps format.
We have occasionally been using the open sourced art of Rini Templeton http://www.riniart.org/ and love her style, but we are open to other styles that look good as a group and that fit with the style of our already conceived site.

The judges will be the editors of Mission Loc@l who reserve the right to decide that there is no winner.

DEADLINE: Midnight January 10.

Send entries in jpg or gif formats along with your name, address, and short biography—one paragraph– to staff@missionlocal.org.
We will announce the winner by the end of January.
Thank you, Lydia Chávez, Managing Editor
