An environmental charity has launched a community competition to find a logo for its Adopt-a-Spot programme.

Keep Bermuda Beautiful has called on professional and amateur graphic designers to design a new logo for the programme, which encourages individuals or organisations to maintain a small part of the island.

The designer with the winning submission will receive a “staycation” package from a local hotel.

Anne Hyde, KBB executive director, said: “Our Adopt-a-Spot Programme is designed to encourage members of the community to ‘adopt’ a location and make a commitment to do periodic cleanups to help keep our island litter free.

“Chosen locations can be anywhere across the island such as a park, public beach, part of the Railway Trail or a neighbourhood street.

“KBB will keep its main logo of the green ‘tidy man’, but we want to brand our Adopt-a-Spot with a new look.

“We would like to invite local graphic designers to help us breathe new life into the programme by designing a new logo specific for this programme which truly captures and represents Bermuda’s unique beauty.”

A spokeswoman for the charity said designers are encouraged to incorporate “Bermuda colours” and said designs with similarities to the main KBB logo may be given special consideration.

Entries can be submitted to office@kbb.bm in JPEG or PDF format before midnight on August 14.

The spokeswoman said five designs will be shortlisted for a public vote, with the winner named on August 21.

Full details about the competition, including entry requirements and logo criteria, are available at www.kbb.bm.
