$10,000 Contest: Design a New Logo for TimesSquare.com


TimesSquare.com, the online events portal for some of the 39 million annual visitors to the iconic entertainment precinct on Manhattan Island, has launched a contest on DesignCrowd for a new logo, and with a budget of $10,000, this is one of the largest design contests to have ever been posted.

The winning logo will be unveiled in Times Square on December 12, 2012 followed by a book launch featuring a selection of the entries from the contest.

Logo designers who submit will be eligible for the following prizes, including a large number of DesignCrowd’s ethical crowdsourcing Participation Payments:

  • 1st Place: $5,000
  • 2nd Place: $1,000
  • 3rd Place (Most Facebook Likes): $500
  • 4th Place: $300
  • 5th Place: $200
  • Top 60 Participation Payments: $50

For participating designers whose design is not selected, DesignCrowd’s sister marketplace, BrandCrowd.com, offers a way to monetize their unused designs by uploading the designs for sale.

Submissions close on July 7. Make sure to check out the contest while there’s still plenty of time!
