Europolitan Logo Contest!






The Europolitan Website needs a new logo!

The SCBWI Europolitan website has primarily been a place to promote the biennial Europolitan conference. From now on, a lot more wonderful things will be happening there – the Europolitan Mentorship Program to begin with – and the site needs a logo for the time between conferences.

Therefore, we invite you to submit your art for a logo contest. We need a banner and round logo to present the Europolitan region's activities for the next years. 

As in all SCBWI logos, there should be a reference to a kite in some way or other. You are free to incorporate visual reference to our regions, to books, to children, to reading, to writing or indeed anything you connect with SCBWI.

We look forward to seeing your submissions!
