announced their latest design competition this week; the challenge – to design the official logo for “Stories from the Field: The United Nations Documentary Film Festival”.

The Prize


The deadline for this fabulous competition is November 26th – so get going!

Presented by Media Communications Association International, New York Chapter (MCA-I NY) in partnership with the United Nations Department of Public Information (UNDPI) and The New School, The Stories from the Field Film Festival was organized in 2004 as the United Nations entered its 60th year. Its mission is to screen films that reflect the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, which pledge to:

+ Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger
+ Achieve universal primary education
+ Promote gender equality and empower women
+ Reduce child mortality
+ Improve maternal health
+ Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases
+ Ensure environmental sustainability

Previously the Festival has used a combination of logos and graphic elements to promote the initiative – consisting of the New York Media Communications Association logo, the United Nations logo and a separate film festival title. The winning logo will win $5000. It is exciting that the UN has opened up this challenge to the worldwide talent of design!

The new logo looks to represent the festival, rather than the organizations that present it and will be used on the festival’s calls for entries, programs, posters, flyers, stationery, collateral materials and the website. It would also be used to brand the various satellite festivals that are in formation.

For more information about the competition see the Design21 Competiton details and submission requirements and to find out more about the festival see the website for Stories From the Field. I look forward to seeing everyone’s submissions next month!

    Various factors that needs to be considered when selecting a landscaping logo design; the company’s image and target audience are high on the list. Features of a business image drawings are abstraction, font type, colors and illustration. When it comes to landscaping logo design, a totally different drawing strategy is employed in order to convey the main theme of the company. There is a very simple rule to calculate a popularity of a corporate identity image; if it works on small business cards, it can work on different sizes as well.
