Sooke Arts Council hosts contest for new logo

Logo designs must be submitted by March 15

The Sooke Community Arts Council is looking for a new logo, and they want someone in the community to be the designer.

The council is holding a contest for the new logo, and everyone is welcome to submit. The person who creates the chosen logo will receive $500 as a prize.

“We haven’t had a new logo for a long time, so we are looking for something new and refreshing,” said Linda Gordon, a member of the Sooke Arts Council.

She said they are looking for a logo that is colourful but can be made black and white, and something that can be small or blown up to the size of a banner.

The logo must also include the letters SAC in it, for Sooke Arts Council.

Submissions can either be hand drawn and dropped off at the arts council’s drop box at Jenny’s Tea in Sooke, or can be made on a device/computer program and be emailed to

Rough draft entries are due March 15, and the council will contact the finalists with feedback. The winner will be announced on May 1.

“I am very excited to see what people come up with,” said Gordon.

Those who wish to learn more about the contest or about upcoming events are encouraged to attend the Sooke Arts Council meeting at 7 p.m. on March 6 at 1911 Murray Rd. in Sooke.
