In the midst of working with other organizations in various capacities, producing promotional material, and branding our campaigns and messages around bargaining and the need to stop cuts to Post-Secondary education, it has become clear that it would be advantageous for CUPE 4163 to have a distinct logo rather than the generic CUPE one we now use.
It is understood that choosing a logo is a subjective exercise and will not always have a unanimous agreement and in fact often will not garner a consensus on a finished product. Nonetheless, it is crucial that CUPE local 4163 provides its members an opportunity to participate in the logo process. With this in mind, the membership has approved a logo contest in which CUPE 4163 will engage two members of the local with media or visual arts backgrounds to judge the contest. The judges’ decision will be final; the final LOGO will not be ratified by the general membership. The contest will be advertised for three weeks with a two week window for entries (5 week total).
The LOGO will be judged on the following criteria:
- “CUPE 4163” is easily identified
- The art relate to the Union’s constituency (who we represent, where we work, the work we do)
- Artistic Creativity
- The legibility of artwork when reduced to lapel pin size/ enlarged to billboard size
Entrants are not limited to one submission.
Once the two judges have decided on a logo the Joint Executive will begin using the CUPE 4163 logo on various material to identify and brand CUPE 4163.
There be a prize gift (maximum $100 value) for the winning entry. The winning member will have his/her picture taken with the logo for media purposes.
Closing date for submissions: April 1
Entries may be submitted to the CUPE 4163 office (TEF Room 217) or email office(at) cupe4163.ca
