Calling All Artists and Graphic Designers!

Are you creative? Like to draw? Know others with an artistic flair? The Oregon Mediation Association (OMA), a local non-profit organization, is holding a contest to design the logo for our upcoming annual conference.

OMA's 23rd Annual Fall Conference will be held November 6-7th in Eugene, Oregon. The theme of the conference is "Beyond Heroes and Villains: The Power of Collaboration". We need a conference logo to include on our conference materials and help us spread the word about this great event.

We're accepting submissions of possible logos until May 5th. We also welcome concept sketches, separate from finished products. Those submitting concept sketches will be recognized in our statewide newsletter and on our website, whether or not the concept is selected.

If an OMA member's design is chosen, he or she will receive a $40 discount to the annual conference or a $40 discount on their OMA member renewal. (If a non-mediator submits a winning entry, we'll arrange an alternate prize.)

Logo & background specifications:
*Must be related to the conference theme
*Must submit a color version
*Must be reproducible and look good both in color and black & white
*In addition to the logo, we welcome submissions that include the background design for a full 8 " x 11" page. For example, last year's conference brochure included a full page graphic of a wave which was easily reproducible on various conference materials and we could print text "on top" of it.
*JPEG files are preferred
*Submissions must be sent electronically by May 5th to  oma@omediate.org.
