MACOA Seeking Artists for Logo Contest
Are you an artist needing a project? A designer seeking to be creative? Or maybe you have a good eye for advertising? Mineral Area Council on the Arts needs your artistic skills to create a new logo!
MACOA will be celebrating 30 years of supporting local arts and culture as of September 2020! Its mission has been and remains “to promote and strengthen the cultural environment in all segments of the area served by Mineral Area College by creating and supporting opportunities for the community to experience the arts and at an affordable cost”. This is a great time to acknowledge the organization’s legacy and a perfect time to improve upon its identity within the community, engage our current constituents, and attract new interest to the organization. To do so, we are inviting community members from Iron, Madison, Perry, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, and Washington Counties to design a new logo for the organization that is creative, immediately recognizable, professional, and indicative of MACOA’s history and mission.
For 30 years the organization has supported local arts, artists, and culture through hosting many events such as concerts spanning multiple genres of music, art exhibits, story-teller events, guest speakers and presentation of diverse cultures, an annual light pole banner competition, and an annual K-12 art show and competition. The organization is ever-expanding and will be holding a creative writing contest to end in September 2020. Plans are for the writing contest to also be an annual event.
Entrants are encouraged to peruse the MACOA website, www.MineralAreaArts.org, and social media pages to learn more about MACOA and its history of supporting local arts.
Official guidelines describing logo criteria and entry form may be found on the MACOA website or social media. The contest is open to the residents of Iron, Madison, Perry, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, and Washington Counties in Missouri. Original creation entries from artists of all ages and various visual art media are welcome.
Entries may be submitted with an entry form by email to MACOALogoContest@MineralArea.edu until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 31, 2020. No late submissions will be accepted. The winner, to be announce at the end of June 2020, will receive a cash award in the amount of $200.
