The Southern Oregon Historical Society is holding a Logo Design Contest


Medford, Oregon – The Southern Oregon Historical Society is offering a $1,500 prize for a winning new logo design.

SOHS issued the following press release on Thursday, January 13, 2022:

“Times, They Change” — and the Southern Oregon Historical Society does change with the times! We need a new logo to reflect the new SOHS system, and you are invited to create a logo for us.

Because of the broad audience we serve – members, volunteers, community members, organizations, school children, visitors, and guests from all over – we are making this a contest with a prize of $1,500 for the entry creator of our choice.

We want our new logo to reflect who we are, who we are and who we will be. We are both live and virtual. We are moving forward with the construction of a new Medford Event Center and Museum. The latter – along with the SOHS Library and Archives – will showcase our 2D and 3D collection of more than one million artifacts, the second largest in Oregon. And of course, SOHS Hanley Farm, our 150-year-old “living history” property, continues to expand its offering of programs, events, and rental opportunities.

You can learn more about SOHS on our current website: https://www.sohs.org. Also be sure to check out the beta version of our new website: https://sohs.projectahost.com/#.

Logo design entries will be evaluated by a panel of graphic designers based on style, relevance and functionality. The first three selections will be sent to the SOHS Board of Trustees for final selection. Each entry should include a one-paragraph statement describing the meaning of the design or the thought process behind it.

Entries must be sent to marketing@sohs.org in PDF format (300 dpi minimum, 600 dpi preferred) by 5 p.m. on Monday, February 28. The winner will be notified at the end of March. Contest rules and details: https://sohs.org/sites/default/files/sohs_files/Logo%20Design%20Contest-Website%20%26%20Contest%20Rules%20Form-Final.pdf

SOHS will take ownership of the winning entry and reserve all rights to use it. SOHS reserves the right to modify the design identified for clarity and accuracy and to modify the design as needed based on context, surface, and application. SOHS will honor the winner of the Logo Design Contest in a press release, in our e-newsletter, and on social media. SOHS also reserves the right not to use any winning entry; In the event that any entry does not meet SOHS approval, the Society reserves the right not to declare the winner of the competition.

We look forward to your creativity. And if you’re the winner, we look forward to your design being the ‘Brand’ of SOHS for years to come!
