2018 Crab Festival Logo Contest Rules


Would you like to see your artwork all over Crab Fest?  Then enter your design in the 2018 Kodiak Crab Festival Logo Contest!  If your design is selected, you will have your artwork displayed on the 2018 Crab Festival shirts, buttons, pins, and promotional advertising. 

This year we are celebrating 60 years (the diamond jubilee) of Crab Festivals. We invite you to create a logo that celebrates this milestone. Artists may include a slogan along with your design, but it is not required.

There are no age restrictions, however, only finished, quality pieces should be submitted.  All logo submissions for the 2018 Crab Festival must reach the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce office, 100 Marine Way, by 5pm on Friday, January 5th, 2018.

The logo should incorporate the image of a crab within the design.  It could also reflect some aspect of the Crab Festival, such as the midway, carnival, parade, sporting and outdoor events, the fishing fleet, or other themes associated with Kodiak Island, such as our wildlife or cultural heritage.


1. Logos need to be original, tasteful, and of high quality.

2. Logos may be computer generated.

3. Entries should be submitted on 8½” x 11” white paper with the artist’s name, address, and telephone number on the back to the Kodiak Chamber of Commerce -- or -- by email to crd@kodiak.org with the same information included in the body of the email.

4. Do not submit extremely detailed designs.  Pins are typically 1” round and do not reproduce fine detail well.

5. Submissions must reach our office by 5pm on Friday, January 5th, 2018 to be considered.

6. Artists may submit as many entries as they wish.

8. The Chamber reserves the right to select the final slogan and logo design and reserves the right to solicit an image should no entries meet the requirements.

9. The Chamber reserves the right to use potential slogans for future use.

The winner will be notified by January 15, 2018 and will receive $50 and a selection of Crab Fest merchandise with their logo.  All non-winning entries will be available for pick up after that date at the Chamber office.  If you should have any questions, please contact Dana Haynes, Kodiak Crab Festival Manager, at 907-486-5557.
