The Malta International Airport is launching a mascot and logo design competition for both professional and amateur participants. The competition is targeting the European Airports Football Championship to be held in Malta in June 2012.
Each participant may submit up to a maximum of three design proposals for the mascot and up to a maximum of three design proposals for the logo and shall submit a Commitment Letter for Copyright Transfer when the design proposals are submitted.
Deadline for submission of the documents is 1200hrs of Friday 22nd July 2011 at which time no design proposals submitted to the Organising Committee shall be returned. The Organising Committee will be acting at the Selection Panel for the mascot and logo design competition to evaluate the design proposals submitted by each participant.
The reward for the selected Mmascot and logo for the EAFC 2012 will be a voucher of €500 from Malta Airport Shopping. Should the chosen designs for the logo and mascot be done by two different artists, the prize will be divided accordingly.
Full regulations for the competition can be downloaded from here or requested by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Whilst REDWHITEmt encourages its readers, especially design students, to grab such opportunities, we do believe that such an exercise requires a reward that quantifies the importance of the same to the whole event. Branding is by far the spine for any successful campaign, thus the importance of such an exercise is crucial, for any design-aware firm.
