Abilities Expo Needs a New Logo

The Logo Challenge
Design a new logo for Abilities Expo, and win up to $1,000.00!

This is the third anniversary of the new ownership of Abilities Expo and it is time to upgrade the former logo, a design representing the traditional sign of people with disabilities.  The intention of a new logo design is that it will represent the diversity of the people with disabilities that Abilities Expo serves from Los Angeles to New York.

The logo must incorporate the name ”Abilities Expo” and may or may not include an additional icon.  The desired impression is that Abilities Expo is the premiere event for all people with disabilities, whether physical, sensory or developmental.  The logo will have to work in both color and black and white.  It should be versatile, conveying the message cleanly, clearly and legibly on something as small as a business card or as large as a freeway billboard.

The Prize
All entries must be received via email or postmarked by midnight on July 15, 2011.  The individual(s) who submits the best logo design will win $1,000 and be featured in the next issue of the Buzz.  First and second runners up will receive $500 and $250, respectively.  Winners will be selected by Abilities Expo staff members David Korse, Lew Shomer, Sarah Laucks, Kevaleen Lara and John Pelico with the approval of the entire Expo team.  These winners will notified via email and/or phone, and be the feature story in the August Buzz.

All artwork should be submitted digitally in one of the following formats: jpeg, tiff, gif or eps. Submissions should be high resolution at 300 dpi at a document size of no less than 6” x 6”. Vector files are preferred. Please email your submission to and include “Abilities Expo Logo” in the subject line.
