Submit designs by Aug. 22
by Randy Parks
Any artist looking for a challenge is invited to try his/her hand at designing a new logo for Harney County.
The new logo should feature an up-to-date, simple design that is representative of the county, and it should be adaptable for both color and black and white. Artists should keep in mind that the new logo will be used in a number of ways, such as letterheads, car magnets, brochures and embroidered on shirts.
Anyone interested in entering the logo contest needs to submit a design by Aug. 22 to: Harney County Logo Contest, Harney County Court, 450 N. Buena Vista, Burns, OR 97720.
Entry forms and rules are available at the Harney County Courthouse, the Burns Times-Herald office and Harney County Library, and the contest is open to everyone.
A committee will select the top logo designs, which will then be on display at this year’s fair for public input.
A $250 prize will be awarded to the selected logo.
The logo committee does reserve the right to make minor alterations to the design or font of the logo, and if the contest doesn’t produce a winner, a professional will be hired to design a new county logo.
The committee reminds those interested that, “A logo’s job is to identify, not describe.”
