We had 50 entries for our 100 years anniversary ‘design a logo’ competition and the first thing we’d like to do is to thank everyone who entered. The entries were judged by our club captains Tom and Kira, Alan our head coach and our chair Joan and they had a tough time deciding on the winners!
In time honoured fashion – the results in reverse order were:
|Third Place, number 26, was praised by the judges for the clever way it made use of the Club’s original name. However, they were concerned the writing would be too small when reproduced. The third place prize of £10 went to Oliver Ayres|
|Second Place, number 40, delighted the judges with its great original art work which they found charming but again, the judges did not feel it would work that well as a logo. They would like to use it on the cover of our 100th Birthday Open programme and perhaps other meet programmes too, so watch this space. The second place prize of £20 went to Emily Jelfs|
|The winner was number 27: the judges felt this would work well as a logo in a number of different ways, for example, on the website, on hats, on shirts and in print with a few adjustments. One of our parents, Paula Coleman, is a graphic designer and she kindly worked up the winning design to make it stronger and more definite. We think she has done this brilliantly! The first place prize of £30 went to Nell Baughan|
|The judges also awarded an extra prize to a fourth entry, number 7 which had a great strapline or slogan which we want to use throughout our centenary year. That strapline is: ‘Splashing around for 100 years’. The extra prize of £10 went to Olivia Kerr|
