ART LOGO CONTEST
OPEN TO ANY ARTIST LIVING IN THE MISSION DISTRICT.
CLOSING DATE: Midnight JANUARY 10.
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)
5. Education (School Days)
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
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 email@example.com.
We will announce the winner by the end of January.
Thank you, Lydia Chávez, Managing Editor
