We only just recently decided on a name for the farm (after living with the land for a year, seeing what the personality was like and simply going by “The Farm.”). This is year 2 and we’re happy to be growing into the name Growing Heart Farm! There are a lot of talented artists and designers out there among you, and we would like to open up the design of the Growing Heart Farm logo to you all! I am putting a bunch of crazy instructions on how to enter below. Don’t get scared off – I am cutting-and-pasting from someone else’s contest so things are as legal and legit as possible ;)
Logo Contest Official Rules
This document describes the official rules (“Official Rules”) of the Growing Heart Farm Logo Design Contest, (the “Contest”). Information on how to enter and about the prizes is part of these Official Rules.
“Entry” means a logo design created by the Entrant for this Contest.
“Entrant” means the individual that offers the Entry under the terms of this Contest.
How to Enter
- Entries must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The entries must be submitted as a scalable vector graphic in EPS or AI format, and also as a JPG. See the Submission Guidelines below for further information.

The winning logo will be used online, in print, on packaging & merchandise, etc. The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing (this is why we are requesting Illustrator files instead of scanned images).
Please ensure that your Entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images.
The logo can either say “Growing Heart Farm” or use initials or pictures to represent the name. For example, it might be nice to have a logo where instead of the word “Heart” we have a heart-shaped tomato. Or it might be nice to have a letter G, a graphic heart, and a letter F. Up to you!
Please try to keep emails to smaller than 10mb.
The winner will be announced by July 15, 2011.
The winning designer will receive:
