Design a Logo to Celebrate our Centenary Year

Introduction

In 2022, the Club will be celebrating 100 years since its foundation in 1922. We are planning a year of celebration: building on our existing successful annual events and including a festive Centenary Regatta to get all members on the water in June and a spectacular Centenary Party in September. We hope that our patron, Princess Anne, will be able to visit the Club during 2022.

We would like you, the members of the Club, to design a logo to celebrate our Centenary, which we will be able to use on all our literature, on our website and social media, on our Centenary clothing and on advertisements to let the wider world know of our achievement.

Rules

The competition is open to all Club members of every category.

Entries will be accepted up until 5pm on 19th April 2020.

There are 4 separate age categories (as on 1st January 2020):
  • Under 8 (Shipmates)
  • 8 to 11
  • 12 to 18
  • 19 and over
Entries must be in colour and presented on one A4 sheet only.

Any medium can be used for the original, but the chosen logo(s) must be both reproducible and printable. If created digitally, the digital file may also be requested.

Please write your name and age category on the back. 

There is no limit to the number of entries per member.

Entries should be handed in to the Club reception.

Notes

The logo should reflect the status of our well known and respected Yacht Club celebrating its 100 year anniversary. The Club has a proud history and is known for being ‘successful on the water, friendly and welcoming ashore’.

The logo will be used in different sizes and in a number of formats, including digital and embroidery.

All entries will be exhibited in the Club and members will be asked to vote for their preferred logo in each category. Prizes will be awarded in each age range and for an overall winner.

In addition, a judging panel will be appointed to advise the Club on the suitability and practicality of the logos receiving the most votes. The judges’ decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. If required the chosen logo(s) may be enhanced professionally before use.

The copyright of all submissions will become the property of the Club, which may use the images in any manner it chooses. Original artwork will be available for collection as soon as possible after the competition, but the Club may keep the originals of the chosen logos for reference until the end of 2022.
