Preservation Alumni Call for Logo Designs!

May 14, 2019 @ 8:00 am - June 15, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

Preservation Alumni is excited to announce the revamping of our current website! Launched over 15 years ago, preservationalumni.org has become a valuable place for us to connect with our members, organize and promote events, and support the mission of the Historic Preservation Program at Columbia University. We’re working hard to create a new website to better engage with our members in the coming months, complete with refreshed graphics and updated capabilities.

As part of this initiative, we are launching a Call for Entries for a new logo design. We’re looking for a fun, creative logo that reflects PA’s long history and mission to bring together members and friends of the program. The deadline for submission is June 15, 2019, and the selected winner will receive $100 in prize money and a free year of membership to Preservation Alumni.

Please see below for more details about the logo design competition, and we look forward to seeing your entries!



The Competition is open to any individual, group of individuals, or legal entity worldwide.


Eligible individuals, groups of individuals, and legal entities who are submitting logos in response to this request for Submissions (the “Participant” or “Participants”) must submit their Submissions (the “Submission” or “Submissions”) no later than June 15, 2019, 11:59 p.m. EST to info@preservationalumni.org.There is no fee to participate in the Competition. No Participant may participate in more than one Submission.

If a Participant is unable to submit online, please contact the Competition administration by emailing info@preservationalumni.org


Logos must satisfy the following criteria:

  • create a recognizable identity for Preservation Alumni and communicate in some way the organization’s connections to the preservation community.
  • work within a circular frame for social media purposes (this can be the entire logo, or a select element or separate version of the logo created specifically for social media purposes)

Note that the logo may include images, text, or a combination of both.


Participants must submit the following materials to info@preservationalumni.org by June 15, 2019.:

1) A Logo Narrative that includes a statement about the logo (maximum 150 words)

2) The Logo Graphic, submitted:

  • On a transparent background
  • With a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch

3) A short bio of the individual, group of individuals, or legal entity entering the Competition (maximum 100 words)

Failure to submit all of the required materials or to follow instructions for submission may result in disqualification.
