Logo Design Competition

The LFMC is holding a competition for the design of a new club logo. Entries are invited from members and the wider public.  We want a logo that we can use on our letterheads, newsletters, banners/flags and website and in newspaper articles, advertisements and other publications. It therefore needs to work both as a small scale design and when enlarged. Here are some relevant statements from our club’s constitution that may help you think about your design ideas.

Mission Statement:  To encourage the appreciation and performance of folk music of all kinds.


  • Promote live folk music in the Horowhenua and wider district
  • Encourage and stimulate the development of all forms of folk music
  • Provide a venue for the enjoyment of live folk music for members and the general public
  • Support the performance of visiting guest artists
  • Encourage members to join with others from the local, national and international community of folk musicians at festivals, gatherings and inter-club events


Competition Details
Entries received by the closing date will be shortlisted by the LFMC committee and the winning
design will be selected through a club members vote. Shortlisting will be based on the extent to
which the design:
 reflects the purpose, nature and characteristics of the club as outlined in the constitution
(see above)
 can be effectively used in the range of applications stated in the introduction above
 reflects qualities of good design.


The competition closes on Friday 26th February 2016, shortlisting will take place in March 2016 and club members will vote on shortlisted designs in April 2016. The winner will be announced at the May 2016 club concert night. A prize of $50 is being offered for the winning design.
Designs must be submitted on an A5 size piece of paper and be suitable for sending to a commercial printer. This can be sent in high resolution by hard copy to:
LFMC Secretary
