In order to form a more perfect Society for Linguistic Anthropology and provide the SLA with a recognizable visual identity, we would like to have a logo that we can use as an avatar in diverse social media contexts (Twitter and Facebook, especially). To that end we are having a logo design competition, open to anyone involved directly or indirectly with the SLA.
The deadline for this contest is May 1, 2010, and we will award a prize of $100 for the winning design.
The logo should work at both larger and smaller scales. Designs should be submitted in TIFF or PNG formats, one full size (200×200 pixels, no larger than 4 inches/100mm in any dimension), one thumbnail size. Our journal color is a lime green. Logo colors are open but should not clash too badly with the lime green.
Preliminary inquiries sent through this contact form are welcome. All entries should be submitted through the form below by May 1.
The judging will be done by an ad hoc SLA logo committee consisting of three members: Alex Enkerli, Leila Monaghan, and Paul Garrett. All finalists will have their designs posted on the SLA blog.
