Next year, 2023, is the 50th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act. To celebrate, the Endangered Species Coalition and our Member Organizations are partnering to create a series of events recognizing and honoring the Endangered Species Act. To elevate and recognize the incredible events being planned, we’re seeking your designs for an Endangered Species Act at 50 logo to be used across all Endangered Species Act at 50 events. Events featuring the logo will be in-person and virtual, with the logo used by ESC and our Member Organizations on digital platforms including webpages/websites, social media, and in other locations.
Individual designers and artists as well as design teams are eligible to submit a logo design. We’re looking for designs representing the celebratory tone of Endangered Species Act at 50 events, and which include one more more species of animals or plants which have benefited from the Act’s protection. Inclusive designs featuring multiple species of plants and animals and showing Environmental Justice themes are highly encouraged.
All logos submitted will be included in a two-round juried competition. The first round will be a jury representing conservation professionals from ESC Member Organizations where semifinalist logos will be chosen to advance for a public vote, with the winning artist/designer or team being awarded $500 and recognition for the logo creation.
Entries open today, September 12th and close Monday, October 10th. The semi-finalists will be announced in late October for public vote, and the winning logo will be announced in early November. For complete guidelines and a link to enter your design, visit the entry page.
