Logo contest for Women in Philanthropy of Ohio University

Women in Philanthropy of Ohio University (WIP) is conducting a logo design contest.

WIP seeks submissions from creative students and alumni for a special image to represent the organization. Next year, 2013 marks WIP's 10th anniversary year. This is a time for a new icon for this occasion that will be used continuously after this celebration has passed.

The contest winner will be acknowledged in WIP materials by the end of 2012 and will be invited for the March 14, 2013 WIP OHIO Women Making a Difference Conference in Athens, where he or she will be acknowledged. Additionally, conference registration and up to two nights of lodging will be provided complimentary for the winner. The winner also will receive a congratulatory certificate with his or her name and the WIP logo.  

The mission of WIP is to foster a powerful tradition of giving and support for the University and its departments, activities and facilities. The organization aspires to increase the number of women who give to Ohio University by providing advocacy about women's philanthropic issues and by training future generations of Ohio University donors.

The winning logo design should consist of an image that represents the ideology of WIP in conjunction with those of University Advancement, whose mission is to inspire meaningful investment in Ohio University by building relationships that transform lives and securing private support.
