Design and celebrate

A competition to design a logo for Churchill’s 50th birthday next year is seeking creative and community focussed entries.

The Churchill community is preparing to celebrate its golden anniversary in 2015, after the town was founded on 15 March 1965.

Competition entries close Monday to find the winning design to brand the town’s celebrations and activities, and will feature in publicity, promotional material and merchandise.

Churchill and District News secretary Ruth Place said the winning design logo would be assessed as the one that best encapsulates a representation of Churchill’s past, present and future.

Ms Place said the design might also include recognisable Churchill landmarks, such as Churchill’s “cigar”.

“There’s only a short time left for people to use their creativity and submit a design,” Ms Place said.

Ms Place said the CDN wanted community submissions so the town felt ownership of the event, rather than have someone create it for them.

“We’d like community input,” she said.

Churchill and District Community Association president Margaret Guthrie said the association was supporting the competition.

Ms Guthrie said the CDCA would like to see a range of community celebrations and activities by various groups and organisations in Churchill across the year.

“We’d really like to have a logo so we can brand different activities for the 50th anniversary,” Ms Guthrie said.

“It will assist in raising awareness about Churchill’s 50th birthday.”
