Village of Clayton Seeks Anniversary Logo Submissions
Clayton, New York (May 19, 2021) – The Village of Clayton seeks the creation of symbolic branding to be commissioned for the community’s upcoming anniversary celebration and embody the yearlong theme of “150 Years – Where the Tradition Continues.”
All artists, inspiring artists, and graphic designers at a professional, amateur, or student level who wish to put their mark on the sesquicentennial celebration are encouraged to enter the Village of Clayton 150th Anniversary Logo Design Contest.
The selected logo will be used on print materials and digital platforms helping to bring recognition and commemoration to this historic anniversary. Additional uses may include, but are not limited to clothing, decals, posters, flyers, plates, coins, buttons, programs, event signage, news media and more. The logo must be functional for small and large applications and display well in color as well as black and white. Also, the design must be easily converted into a vector (digital format).
All artwork must be original creations of the entrant, and the final artwork no larger than 8.5” x 11” (horizontally or vertically).
By entering the contest, the artist will agree to allow necessary changes (not affecting the integrity of the design) that may be necessary to ensure the best presentation of the logo. Designs must incorporate the tag line “150 Years – Where the Tradition Continues” and the dates 1872-2022. Artists are encouraged to focus on the history of the Village of Clayton specifically, not the Thousand Islands Region as a whole. All entries will become the property of the Village of Clayton and by submitting an entry, each entrant agrees that any and all intellectual property rights in the logo design are deemed assigned to the Village of Clayton.
The deadline for logo submissions is Friday, July 16, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. A panel of judges will review the logo designs based on creativity as well as functionality. The winning design will be announced Monday, August 2, 2021.
Submissions should be delivered in a sealed envelope (that is not folded) to: Clayton Chamber of Commerce, Attn: Village 150th Logo Contest, 517 Riverside Drive, Clayton NY 13624. High resolution artwork can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org

VILLAGE OF CLAYTON TO BEGIN PLANNING SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION
(Clayton, New York) -The Village of Clayton will turn 150 years old on April 17th, 2022 and will commemorate its incorporation with a historic celebration featuring a symbolic theme relating to our community’s rich history: “150 Years–Where The Tradition Continues.”
To host an appropriate village-wide and year-long celebration, an initial advisory group has been formed and preliminary discussions held. Ideas of hosting events such as two parades; a summer and a winter parade, a fireworks display, a historic photo display, a fishing derby, a pageant, a beard growing contest, souvenirs, hosting history talks, newspaper spotlights, walking tours, an Old Home Day, and many more were discussed. We also believe bringing all regularly planned year-long activities under the 150th anniversary umbrella will help to involve the entire community.
To make this happen, and not to over burden any one person or group, we need a small army of volunteers. To determine community interest, we are inviting community members, business leaders, civic organizations, non-profit organizations and churches to a meeting on Monday, May 17th, at 5:30PM, at the Clayton Fire Station on Graves Street, Clayton. Even if you can only give a little of your time, please plan to attend and be involved in honoring what Village leaders started 150 years ago!
If you cannot physically help, but can assist with a monetary donation, please send a contribution to the Clayton Chamber of Commerce, 517 Riverside Drive, Clayton, New York 13624, and annotate the subject line for the “150th Celebration.” Online donations may also be made by clicking on the Pay Pal button to the right.
Additional information will be made available on this page as it is confirmed. You can also follow event details on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/villageofclaytons150th.
The momentum is building, and we hope you will join us!
