The winning design will become the official logo for The Columbus Arts Council starting 2013 and artist will receive credit through press release and the satisfaction of knowing their logo will live on to represent the Columbus Arts Council for years to come. The artist will also receive recognition in the Commercial Dispatch with a picture of them with the winning logo as well as their story on the Columbus Arts Council website.

"The current branding frustration is that we are trying to find a logo that will distinguish us as being the Columbus Arts Council located at the Rosenzweig Arts Center. Some people know us as the Columbus Arts Council while others only know us as the Rosenzweig Arts Center or the RAC, so we would like to have a logo that incorporates the two and eliminates confusion. The Columbus Arts Council is a non-profit organization that strives to present, promote and support arts and arts education."

All entries must be received by Thursday, October 31, 2012. Decisions will be announced by November 15th. If you would like further information, please contact the Columbus Arts Council by calling 328-ARTS (2787),, visiting or on Facebook at Columbus Arts Council.
