Wetland landscapes for all design a logo competition

The Wetland Landscapes for All team is working in and around Nottingham to make habitats better for wetland wildlife in parks and reserves to provide better access to them. The partnership are asking you to design a logo for the project and are looking for an eye-catching design that captures the importance of wetlands for people and wildlife.

You could win £50 to spend on art materials plus £500 for your school, college or group.

The closing date is 28th July 2017 and entrants must be between the ages of 5 and 16 and register to take part by 2nd June by  emailing (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) (use subject heading “Wetlands Logo Competition”).

Wetland Landscapes for All is a multi-partner project across the Trent, Leen and Erewash Valleys and has been made possible through Growth Point Finding awarded by the Greater Nottingham Planning Partnership.

Wetland Landscapes for All Logo Competition – Guidelines and Rules
The project partners are running this competition to encourage young people to think about, help protect and make the most of their local wetland sites.
We would like a logo which helps to raise the profile of the projects being undertaken across the Trent, Leen and Erewash Valleys.  The project area includes Netherfield Lagoons, Skylarks Nature Reserve, Colwick Country Park, Highfields Park, Portland Park, The Leen and Farleys Brook, The Hook, Attenborough, Erewash Canal, Erewash Meadows, Brinsley Nature Reserve, Toton Nature Reserve, Hall Om Wong Park and Titchfield Park.
 
The logo will be used in lots of future communications, for example:- on letters, on the website, on emails, and on banners. This means the logo could be shrunk down to 1cm by 1cm or blown up to 1m by 1m! Don’t worry about making your work too perfect, the winning design will be finessed by a graphic designer.
Think about what your local wetland means to you; what do you love about it? What makes it special to you? Are there any activities or wildlife that make it a great place to visit? What is it about the wetland environment that inspires you?
