SAGANet Logo Design Competition
SAGANet is looking for a new logo to take us into 2015 in style! SAGANet members are invited to help shape the future vision of our community by contributing their designs to our SAGANet Logo Design Competition!
We are looking for logos that capture our vision at SAGANet of a scientifically engaged community that connects professional scientists and science enthusiasts from all walks of life. Basically, we want a logo that matches our desire to inspire the scientist in everyone! Logo themes can include astrobiology, space exploration, STEM Education, mentoring or anything else you can imagine that reflects the breadth of our community at SAGANet.org. Entries will be assessed based on originality and alignment with the SAGANet vision.
The SAGANet vision:
SAGANet is a community of scientists, students, journalists, educators and science enthusiasts. We envision a world where continuous, genuine scientific learning and engagement by the general public is a cultural norm and where the divide between professional scientists and members of the larger community is bridged by regular personal interaction between the two.
The prize winning logos from this competition will be used in our upcoming 2015 Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for accreditation from the International Mentoring Association for our SAGANet Mentoring Program, which connects students, teachers and families with early-career professional scientists. Keep an eye-out for more details of our Kickstarter campaign in 2015! Logos will appear both on the SAGANet website and on merchandise, including (but not exclusive to) t-shirts, mugs, stickers and buttons.
The designer(s) of the winning logo will receive a $100 award and SAGANet merchandise featuring their design as well as the opportunity to showcase their work on an international stage. The competition closes Jan. 31st at 11:59 US Eastern. See below for official submission guidelines.
1) The purpose of the contest is to design a logo for SAGANet, and the logo must include the words "SAGANet.org".
2) The logo will be used online, in print, on merchandise, and elsewhere, so the final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing. Due to the requirements for high quality printing and re-sizing, logo entries must submitted in scalable vector graphic format (PDF or EPS).
