Second Logo Contest Announced


After concluding our contest to name the Gift Shop, the NMHFM is now running a second gift shop contest, for design of a logo for The Miner’s Pick. The prize for this contest will be similar to the first, a specially selected item or items from our gift shop inventory. Entries must follow these guidelines:

  • All entries must be original creations of the artist. Any entries using similar ideas or artistic representations in use by another organization will be disqualified.
  • Logos should use a maximum of 3 colors, one of them being black.
  • There are no specifications of what media the art is created in. However, a digital file must be submitted with the entry in either pdf or jpg format.
  • Logos must reflect the name of the gift shop, as well as the personality of the museum, hall of fame, or gift shop.
  • Logos must present a professional and responsible message and not contain offensive subject matter.
  • Employees of the museum or gift shop and members of the Board of Directors or Board of Governors, and their immediate family members are excluded from entering the competition.
  • Logos will be judged by the staff of the NMHFM, who will each receive one vote. In the event of a tie, the Chairman of the Board of Directors will cast the deciding vote.
  • Entries must be sent electronically by email to: info@mininghalloffame.org.
  • The deadline for contest entries is March 12, 2021 at 11:59 p.m.
