Logo Competition Closing Soon

General News | 03/12/2010

People wanting to contribute their ideas on the Auckland Council’s logo have just days to put their entry in.

Judging panel chair Bob Harvey says there have been hundresed of entries received so far.

"There is a variety of designs with a lot of good ideas and some interesting gems amongst them. It is going to be a difficult task to find a winner.

"But we want more entries – it doesn’t matter if people are not designers, although we certainly welcome entries from professionals. It is about the core idea, the base concept, which is the most difficult part of the process.

"Once we have found our winner, we will take the concept and develop it to be displayed on everything from the new council’s letterheads to its headquarters."

The competition closes Friday, 19 March at 5pm.
