ComFest LOGO CONTEST - Thursday, March 3, 7:30 PM

Design the 2016 ComFest T-Shirt! Entries must be brought to the shelter house in Goodale Park on Thursday, March 3 at 7:30 PM, and meet the following requirements:

  1. It should be a black and white drawing. We do a one color silk-screen in order to be economical. Due to the mechanical limitations and expense of the silk-screening process, it is difficult and expensive to do grey tones or shading. If your design has some shading, it would have to be done in a way that will lend itself to be easily silk-screened. Original art only.

  2. Include the dates: June 24, 25, 26, 2016 or June 24-26, 2016.

  3. Include the name, Community Festival. Those two words must appear together in the design. In addition, you can place the word "ComFest" in the design if you wish.

  4. Include the place, Goodale Park.

  5. Include the Hopewell symbol, shown below:
    Hopewell Logo

  6. Another good tip is to make the design with a vertical orientation so that it looks good on a T-shirt. The logo will appear in other places but the most important place is on the T-shirt.
  7. PRINT artist's name, address, e-mail and phone number on the BACK of the contest entry.
  8. An artist may enter two different logo designs, but only one version of a particular design may be entered.
  9. Have a high resolution digital file of your entry available. ComFest reserves the right to request changes to the chosen design.
  10. Finalists will be chosen at the Logo Contest. The winner will be chosen at the next General Planning Meeting. The winner will be notified after that meeting.
Having your design chosen is a great honor which will make you part of the history of ComFest. Hundreds of volunteers will be wearing the T-shirt at the Festival and will wear them around for years to come. The winner gets mentioned on the website, in the Program Guide and we give the winner a few valuable goodies too.

Program Guide Correction: On pgs. 24, 25, 27 and 42 the incorrect organization was listed for speakers and a workshop. The speakers and presenters are from Responsible Ohio and not Responsible Ohioans for Cannabis - two different groups. Check out responsibleohioans.org to explore the differences. Sorry from ComFest to both groups.

The Community Festival Statement of Principles

We think that people ought to work for the collective good of all people rather than for personal gain. We support cooperation and collective activity rather than competition and individual profit.

The basic necessities of life are a right and not a privilege. People have the collective right to control the conditions of their lives.

People should strive to conduct their lives in harmony with the environment.

We recognize that there are primary attitudes which divide and oppress people. These attitudes are usually shown by prejudice against people on the basis of age, class, ability, income, race, sex and sexual preference/orientation. We seek to eliminate these attitudes.
The Statement of Principles is more important than any other writings of the Community Festival.
