Westport’s Own Sesquicentennial Competition – Create the Westport Brand!
Canada is turning 150 in 2017 and Westport is planning events all year. And we want to make this our own, home grown celebration including our own 150th Branding – something that is unique to Westport.
The Mayor’s Sesquicentennial Task Force is holding a competition open to everyone, young and old, groups and individuals, school children, to create a brand that captures the uniqueness of Westport – our traditions, personality, geography, etc – as we celebrate Canada’s 150th.
Your entry must be suitable to be displayed in a variety of medium – i.e. paper, cloth, electronic and must include the Canada sesquicentennial flag somewhere in the design.
The deadline for submission is Friday, October 28 @ 4:00 p.m. and all entries become property of the Village. Entries can be dropped off at Town Hall or emailed to Niki Bresse – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Judging will occur on November 1 by a panel of judges selected from the Mayor’s Sesquicentennial Task Force.
The Prize? – the Pride of recognition and having your design displayed throughout 2017.
