Logo Competition

The board of directors is holding a competition for a new logo/wordmark design that recognizes our English and French names and refreshes our public image. A prize of $500 will be awarded for the winning entry.

Judging will take place in May 2022. The winner will be notified at that time but must keep the entry and winning status confidential until Seminar 2023 when the winning entry will be unveiled and the winning designer announced.

All questions and submissions should be directed to logochallenge@eac-acb.ca.

Competition overview:

  • This competition is open to everyone, not just EAC/ACB members.
  • All entries must be received electronically no later than midnight EST, December 31, 2021.
  • Copyright of the winning entry must be assigned to EAC/ACB.
  • EAC/ACB is not required to use any of the submissions, including the winning submission.

Design criteria:

  • The full name of the association in both languages must be included (Embroiderers’ Association of Canada, Inc./Association canadienne de broderie, Inc.).
  • If using initials in a graphic element, both “EAC” and “ACB” must appear.

The association’s name is long and in two languages, however, there are times when we must use our full name. In many cases, the initials of our English and French names are not enough to make what we do and offer clear. A logo or graphic element that works with a wordmark and expresses the association’s aim and purpose and can be used alone is ideal for us.

Some of the ways in which we will use the winning entry are:

  • Membership cards
  • Letters, forms and other documents
  • Social media accounts
  • Website, including a favicon (an icon associated with an URL that is displayed in a browser’s address bar or next to the site name in a bookmark list)
  • Magazine, posters, marketing materials
