Acadia National Park Centennial Logo Contest

Acadia’s Centennial: Celebrate our past! Inspire our future!

Friends of Acadia and Acadia National Park invite artists and graphic designers nationwide to design a logo celebrating the park’s 100th anniversary in the year 2016. The winning entry in the Acadia National Park Centennial Celebration Logo Contest will receive a prize of $3,000 and their design will appear on publications, merchandise, online, and elsewhere throughout the centennial celebration.

Acadia National Park’s Centennial will be promoted and celebrated throughout the park and surrounding communities starting in the fall of 2015. Acadia National Park’s Centennial will encourage people to celebrate Acadia National Park’s rich natural and cultural history, and inspire people to make a personal connection with the park and work for the best possible future for this national treasure.

In order to put those plans in motion, a logo is needed for educational, promotional, and marketing pieces. To that end, the Acadia Centennial Committee, which includes Acadia National Park, Friends of Acadia, and other partners, is sponsoring the Acadia Centennial Celebration Logo Contest.
