Green B.C. logo contest

British Columbia design students are being invited to compete to create a new logo for the government’s LiveSmart BC climate action programs.

“Our goal is to tap into the creative energy and talent of our young people to empower British Columbians to take action on climate change,” said Premier Gordon Campbell.

“LiveSmart BC will be an overarching, recognizable brand that will inspire the public to get involved in climate action and promote healthier, more eco-efficient ways of living.”

The winning logo design will receive a prize of $10,000 with four runners-up receiving prizes of $2,500 each. The challenge is to design a LiveSmart BC logo that is:

  • unique and inspirational.

  • a public symbol of British Columbia’s commitment to sustainable growth and climate action.

  • inclusive of the brand name “LiveSmart BC.”

  • suitable for use on government websites, on resource and marketing materials, in print and animated forms, and in conjunction with government services and programs as well as partners and external stakeholders.

  • “LiveSmart BC will be launched this spring and will reward smart choices that save energy, water, fuel, time and money,” said Campbell.

    “The new LiveSmart BC programs will help to contain urban sprawl and reward development that creates affordable housing, new green spaces and more people-friendly neighbourhoods.”

    Entrants must be students, 19 or older and currently enrolled at a recognized post-secondary institution or design institute in British Columbia.

    Design teams may include one or more persons (one entry per person).

    Entrants must complete a submission form, including the institution they are attending and a brief description of how the design represents the LiveSmart BC brand and the winning entrant(s) must agree to sign a waiver of rights before claiming the prize.

    Deadline for submissions is April 28 at 4:30 p.m.
