Washington Eye Institute

Logo Contest

At Washington Eye Institute, we believe our community and patients are the best! For this reason, we’ve made an exciting decision to include all of you in our campaign for a new practice logo! We would love for you to share this contest with anyone who you feel may be interested, the more the merrier!

Here’s your chance to dazzle the community with your unique creativity! All art must be high resolution digital illustrations. Preferably a vector file such as a .AI or an EPS file so that the image can be resized to fit any and all of the business advertising needs. However, Washington Eye Institute will consider other files; such as high resolution jpg (300 dpi on 8x10), tif, and png (as long as these files can be vectorized and used for the needs of Washington Eye Institute). Your creativity knows no bounds. We want an image that speaks to our community of who we are and what we do but it can be as simple or as intricate as you want! Low resolution images may be originally submitted but the winning designer must be able to submit a high quality, resizable digital file.

Washington Eye Institute is a multi-specialty Ophthalmic private practice. We’ve recently moved our practice to Greenbelt, Maryland however we regularly see patients in Cumberland, Maryland and our patients are from all over the tristate area.

The chosen design will be our new practice logo for Washington Eye Institute and the artist will receive a cash prize as well as a swag bag including items showcasing the winning artist’s design! We look forward to seeing all of your artwork!

Please take a moment to look over the rules and regulations.

All entries will be reviewed to ensure they fit the rules and regulations. A combination of voting by staff and a panel of guest judges determines the Top Finalist designs, which will determine the Grand Prize Winner and Runner-Up Winner. Our staff may also select extra favorites called Staff Picks.
