We have decided to pull the plug on our logo design contest. Thank you to everyone that contributed a design concept so far. After reviewing feedback we received from the online design community, we felt it was better to discontinue and cancel the contest. We consulted several designers as well as the AIGA to arrive at this decision.

The general consensus from the design community is that contests cheapen and hurt the industry as a whole and accepting work for free in the hopes of being compensated later is wrong. When we first launched our logo design campaign, we truly were just trying to have a fun contest that would bring in a wide and diverse group of talented designers to create a fresh and new logo for us. It was not intended to be a “branding relaunch” as we incorrectly stated. We thought that using a popular service like 99designs.com was credible and acceptable and would allow entry level designers to compete for a chance to earn $300. I feel contests are appropriate for some circumstances, but probably not for a logo. As with all art forms, graphic design is a professional and skilled trade that people who dedicate themselves to should be compensated for.

As an art organization ourselves that is part of the wider design community, we respect the views of everyone and we value input, even if our feathers get a little ruffled along the way [sorry @HelloMelendez :) ] We felt the spirit of our contest was pure and at no point did we intend or even consider that our contest would offend members of the community. For the record, SeattleArtists.com has graphic designers on staff and is a division of a larger creative web agency. We get it.

So, that being said, our logo design contest is official dead. We will review our future plans and consider alternatives for getting new designs in the future and may hold a call for portfolio submissions from which we can hire a talented designer for us.

Again, we thank everyone who gave us feedback and helped to guide us in making this decision.

Cheers!
Joe McDonald
Founder

SIFF-Czech2014_940x157

SIFF (Seattle International Film Festival) is celebrating the newest and greatest films from Czech cinema at the "Czech That Film Festival", running July 11-13th.

Seattle has a rich history of great film festivals and we love to support them. Here’s your chance to support them too!

Enter to win 2 free tickets! SIFF has graciously provided us with a pair of tickets to screen the film, Like Never Before, on Saturday July 12th at 2:30pm. Under-appreciated painter Vladimír Holas created many beautiful works, and never sold out to the previous Communist regime. Not wishing to live out his final days in a sterile hospital, he makes his final refuge at his summer home in the picturesque countryside, attended to by both a vulgar but lovable bohemian artist and his former lover.

To enter to win 2 free tickets to the screening, just enter your email address in the form below and click the big green button.

Don’t forget to share! Receive additional chances to win with each time you share our giveaway on social media.

Save on more tickets! For those of you who want to Czech out (couldn’t resist) the rest of the films in the festival, use the promo code CZECH14 to get $3 off any general admission tickets purchased online, over the phone, or at the box office. Unfortunately, this promo code will not work for Like Never Before because it is a matinee screening.

Help support the local Seattle film scene.
