Submitted by Town of Bedford

The Bedford Tricentennial Committee is looking for a logo to help celebrate the town’s 300th anniversary, and is inviting residents – individually or in groups – to enter their designs in a contest.

The deadline for submitting entries is June 30. Entries may be emailed to [email protected]. Plans call for the winning entry to be unveiled on Bedford Day, Sept. 21, 2024.

Entries will be judged based on criteria that include visual appeal, relevance, originality, and flexibility in applications. The winning entry will be selected by a panel. The Select Board, as the executive branch of town government, will be asked to endorse it.

The design will be used on everything from T-shirts and hats to banners and informational materials, and possibly even a mural to commemorate this milestone. It will be incorporated long before the start of the year-long celebration culminating with the town’s 300th anniversary on Sept. 23, 2029.

The committee emphasized some key criteria:

  • The logo must incorporate the number “300” and the word “Bedford.” It could also include elements associated with the town – local landmarks, symbols, monuments. But the number and the name are mandatory. 
  • The logo must be designed and submitted electronically to maximize effectiveness of replication. The file has to be digital and vector-based so it can be scalable, and feature no more than three colors (and should lend itself to production in one color). Designs must be submitted digitally. Designs may be created with computer drawing programs or traditional media, but must be uploaded in .pdf, .png, or .jpg format.
  • All submitted designs and images must be the original work of the contestant. No third-party artwork or images, including clipart or copyrighted graphics, may be used

The town will acquire ownership of the winning logo by assignment of copyright, and the winning designer will disclaim any trademarks and without limitation, all other rights related to the design. 

By submitting a logo for entry in the competition, the designer acknowledges that they are the person who created the logo and is the rightful owner. The designer also certifies that the logo does not infringe upon the rights of any third party and that it does not violate any copyright.
