2017 RHODODENDRON FESTIVAL LOGO CONTEST NOW OPEN!

The Florence Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the 110th Rhododendron Festival Logo Contest.

Professional and amateur graphic designers of all ages and from across the state are invited to submit logo designs by e-mailing bettina@florencechamber.com by Monday, October 17th at 5:00 p.m. for consideration.  DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS HERE.

The winning design will be printed on official festival t-shirts, commemorative pins, banners, advertisements, and print guides. The grand prize winner will receive a cash prize of $250, a framed festival poster, two complimentary festival t-shirts and two tickets to the carnival. They will also earn mention in community wide publicity, online posts at florencechamber.com, and press releases related to the festival.

“We’re looking for fun, original designs that capture the energy of the festival and celebrating our community.” Jenna Bartlett, Chamber board president, says of the contest. A full list of rules is attached above. Logos must incorporate the Rhododendron flower, a graphic element representing Florence, and the text “Always Ready to Rhody”, “110th”, and “ Rhododendron Festival.” Designs may incorporate up to five colors.

A panel of judges will determine the grand prize winner, which will be announced on Friday October 21, 2016. Artists may create multiple designs for consideration, but must submit each design separately. Companies may participate and will receive a business level chamber membership with a bonus category package if their design is chosen. Self-employed graphic artists or amateur designers may choose the cash prize or sponsorship package.

The 2017 Rhododendron Festival will be held May 19, 20, 21, 2017.
