2018 Norwich Beer Festival logo competition

The annual competition has been launched by CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) to find the new logo for the 41st Norwich Beer Festival, taking place from Monday 22nd October until Saturday 27th October 2018.

The competition has commenced early this year as the Norwich & Norfolk branch will be hosting the Great British Beer Festival Winter (Tuesday 20th February until Saturday 24th February 2018). For more information about that, visit

The deadline for competition entrants is 9pm on Monday 19th February 2018 and Norwich & Norfolk CAMRA are looking for innovative designs depicting a dragon of some form.

Members and volunteers can feel proud of another successful Norwich Beer Festival in 2017, which marked its 40th year and saw 18,000 visitors.

Now the preparations for the popular annual event can commence for 2018.

Ian Stamp, Chairman, said: “We are hoping to receive lots of entries, although they must include a dragon in some form, the entrants can choose a setting or background of their choice.

“We always look forward to seeing the selection of talented entrants. The logo of the winner will be depicted on the festival glass, programme, and other merchandise”.

As always, the essential element is that a dragon must be included within the design, although abstract is acceptable. Also, a maximum of five colours (four is preferable) can be used, including any black or white parts of the design.

Entrants are asked to specify "Adult" or "Under-18" and include their name, contact details and age (if under-18) within the email.

The main winner will be judged by the organising committee and will receive £100 along with a selection of merchandise featuring their logo at the festival.

There will be two runner-up prizes of complementary festival tickets, and the best under-18 entrant will receive a voucher.

All entries must be in a standard image format (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, BMP, or PDF). Vector files are welcome as long as a standard image format is included. Hand drawn entries are acceptable, but must be scanned or photographed.

All entries must be emailed to and be received before 9pm Monday 19th February 2018. All email entries will be acknowledged.

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