Calling all designers! The Fulbright Association is hosting a logo competition for its 2019 annual conference, and invites submissions of compelling logos that visually represent our conference theme: “Connecting Minds and Hearts for Global Change.” This theme recalls a famous quote from Senator J. William Fulbright:
Our future is not in the stars but in our own minds and hearts. Creative leadership and liberal education, which in fact go together, are the first requirements for a hopeful future for humankind.
Competitive logo designs will encapsulate the conference theme and incorporate design elements relevant to the mission of the Fulbright Program.
This is a pro bono opportunity to expand your portfolio and elevate visibility for the work of the Fulbright Association. The winner will receive special recognition in our conference publications, channels, and in conference materials as the logo creator as well as a free conference registration. If unable to attend the conference, the winner will receive a $200 gift card. Submissions are due by May 15, 2019.
Guidelines for logo submissions are as follows:
- Format: High resolution (600dpi) .EPS and/or .JPG or .PNG file, in both color and black and white versions. Backgrounds should be transparent.
- The logo should incorporate either the phrase or idea of the theme “Connecting Minds and Hearts for Global Change”
- Your artwork MUST be original. You agree upon submission that all artwork incorporated in the logo belongs to you. (You may use the Fulbright Association logo as part of your design.)
- This is a volunteer, pro bono contest where no fees will be paid for submission. The designer grants permission to the Fulbright Association to use the logo for up to 5 years in all outreach, across all mediums, without restrictions.
- You or your team may submit up to 6 logos to the contest.
The winner of last year’s logo competition was Holly Wheeler, whose papel picado-inspired design incorporated last year’s conference theme of “Un Mundo, Muchas Voces (One World, Many Voices)” as well as celebrated the conference’s location in Puebla, Mexico.

Our 2019 conference will be held in the greater Washington, DC area from October 24 to 26.
