2015 Norwich Beer Festival logo competition launched

The annual competition to find the new logo for the 38th Norwich Beer Festival, which will take place from Monday 26th October 2015, has just been launched. This is one of the first tasks for the annual beer festival and the logo will be one of the prime marketing tools for the festival.

Martin Ward, the festival organiser for the previous 11 years, said: “As ever, we are hopeful we will receive a large and superb array of entries. We receive entries on various themes, which just must include a dragon in some form, but the entrants can choose the setting. We always look forward to having a tough decision over the eventual winner!”.

The main winner will be judged by the organising committee at the planning meetings in the New Year and will receive £100 along with a selection of merchandising at the festival featuring their logo.

The winning under-18 entrant will get a book voucher and there will be ten runner-up prizes of complementary festival tickets. On the back of the paper or within the email, please specify "Adult" or "Under-18" and include your name, contact details and age (if under-18).

As always, the most important element is that a dragon must be included within the design, but abstract is fine; with a maximum five colours (although four is preferable), including any black or white parts of the design. Emailed entries should be in a computer readable format (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PDF, Postscript, GIMP, Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator or Corel Draw), please. No MS Word document files please!

Entries (one per sheet or email and with a maximum size A4) can be sent to Beer Festival Logo Competition, 22 Branford Road, Norwich, Norfolk, NR3 4QD or email to by Monday 16th February 2015 at the latest.

All entries will become the property of Norwich & Norfolk branch of the Campaign for Real Ale and may be used for display and publicity purposes.
