2020 Brooks Camp Bear Pins Logo Contest Official Rules
This document describes the official rules (“Official Rules”) of the 2020 Brooks Camp Bear Pins Logo Contest organized by Katmai National Park and Preserve (“KATM”), (the “Contest”). The object of this Contest is to design a logo for this year’s Brooks Camp Bear etiquette and booster pins. The bear etiquette pins are awarded to every visitor to Brooks Camp upon their completion of the mandatory bear safety training, and serve as a visual reminder of their training. The booster pins are colored versions of the etiquette pins, and are awarded to exemplars of excellent bear behavior while at Brooks Camp. Information on how to enter and about the prizes are part of these Official Rules. To the extent of any inconsistency, these Official Rules prevail.
“Entry” means a logo design created by the Entrant for this Contest. “Entrant” means the individual that offers the Entry under the terms of this Contest. “KATM” means Katmai National Park and Preserve, and/or any of this park’s officially designated employees or representatives.
How to Enter
Submission GuidelinesThe purpose of the contest is to design a logo for the 2020 Brooks Camp bear etiquette and booster pins. The logo will be used online, in print, on the pins and modified to be used in any manner needed by KATM. Flexibility is a key requirement, including the need to resize easily and to look good in monochrome as well as in color versions. The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for engraving and high quality printing.
All Entries must include at least one image: a monochrome illustration that can be rendered as is on a lapel pin, and which is suitable to be rendered in color on a separate, enameled lapel pin. Entries may (but are not required to) include an additional image showing a suggested color scheme for the enameled pin. Entrants should take care to ensure that their Entries are not derived from or easily mistaken for existing logos or other copyrighted images.
Entered logo illustrations must contain some graphical reference to bears. Homages to any of the other natural or cultural resources found in KATM are welcome. This image should not be photographic (see below for information on graphic formats), but must be recognizable as ursine in nature.
The logo must also contain the word “Katmai” and a reference to the year. Creativity is appreciated.
Entry images are welcome to be of any size, but remember that the finished pins will cover a surface area no larger than 1 inch by 1 inch. Designs should be legible when rendered at this scale with enamel paints. Remember that the booster bear pins will be colored with enamel paints, so designs with shading will have to be altered before production. Keep it simple.
The limit on attachment sizes for our email is 25 MB. If your Entry attachment exceeds this size it cannot be entered into this competition.
To recap, each Entry must contain one image of a monochromatic logo. An optional colored variant may be included. Images must be in either JPG or PDF format for email Entries, or on suitable pieces of paper or cardstock for physical Entries. All designs must include the wording as required above.
