WOW logo competition

As we reported on the website a few days ago, we’re already looking forward to World Osprey Week 2015. As part of the preparations for what we hope will be an even bigger and better celebration of Ospreys, we’d like your school’s help. Today we’re launching a special competition for schools to design a logo for WOW.

WOW Logo Competition

The key to the success of World Osprey Week is the involvement of schools all around the world and we’d love the new logo to reflect that. We’d like a logo that is striking and instantly recognisable. Most importantly of all though, we’d like a logo that has been designed by a student (or students) at one of the WOW schools.

The logo should be simple and easy to reproduce, and reflect the key aims of WOW: to link young people all over the world through their shared studies of these incredible birds and their amazing migratory journeys. It is open for any school to enter.

How to Enter

Entering the competition is simple. Scanned logo artwork can be email to timmackrill@rutlandwater.org.uk or you can post it to Tim Mackrill, Birdwatching Centre, Egleton, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 8BT. The logo design should be on paper no larger than A4. Please remember that the design must be easy for us to reproduce.

The closing date for entries is 31st December and a winner we be selected in January. The winning design will then be used on the website and all future WOW publicity and materials. The winning school will receive a special Osprey goody bag and also a visit from the Rutland Osprey team – either in person or by Skype, depending on where you are in the world!

We look forward to receiving your entries!
