Harford 250 Logo Contest

Logo Contest Submission Guidelines

The Harford Heritage Committee is planning a year-long celebration in 2023 for Harford County’s 250th anniversary. One of its first tasks is to develop a logo that will act as the official emblem of the “Harford 250” celebration. The logo will be featured on anniversary year memorabilia and at all of the many programs and events planned to celebrate Harford’s 250 year history. The committee is seeking graphic submissions of potential logos that will become the “face” of the Anniversary Year. The logo will potentially be used on pins, plates, letterhead and various other materials, so this should be considered in developing a design.

Submission acceptance dates: January 1, 2021 to March 30, 2021

Submission parameters: Proposed logo should be submitted as a color rendering of approximately 8” X 10” to allow for easy duplication. A brief description of the idea behind the proposed logo is encouraged.

Where to send submissions: Email submissions to 250celebration@harfordhistory.org. Include your name, address, telephone number and email address OR you may send 3 color copies of your proposal along with contact information to The Harford Heritage Committee, c/o The Historical Society of Harford County, Inc., 143 N. Main St., Bel Air, MD 21014.

Results: All submissions will be retained by the Harford Heritage Committee. Three members of the committee will choose the winning logo submission and award a $100 prize to the successful applicant. The Committee will notify the winning applicant and award the prize as soon as a selection is made.

Submission Understanding: Submission constitutes the individual’s agreement to allow the use of the proposed winning logo and also acknowledges that graphic renderings of the winning logo may be used for publicity purposes. It is also understood that no additional payment, monetary or otherwise, will be given beyond the initial prize money for use of the logo.
