The Michigan Family Farms Conference is more than just a conference. Year after year, farmers, educators, and food system professionals gather to network, learn, and share resources and experiences. Year after year, we come together to celebrate diversity, expand our knowledge of sustainable agriculture, and strengthen the supportive network of farmers that we know is essential for building resilient farms.
Michigan Food and Farming Systems (MIFFS) and the conference planning team are looking for a new logo to represent this dynamic history and vision. We're looking to you, our talented community of producers, educators, students, activists, and artists, to design a logo that encompasses diversity, sustainable agriculture, small and family farms, youth empowerment, social justice, and cultural inclusivity.
The theme of the 17th annual Michigan Family Farms Conference to be held in February 2020 is, "Nurturing Resilient Farms - 2020 & Beyond."
The target audience for the conference is beginning, historically underserved, small-scale, sustainable, family farms.
The deadline to submit your logo is July 19, 2019. The winner of the design contest will receive five tickets to the Michigan Family Farms Conference and be acknowledged on MIFFS' website, social media, e-newsletter, as well as in outreach for the conference and in the conference program.
The logo should be created in vector format so that it can be scaled up infinitely without quality loss.
Please submit logo in one of the following:
SVG – A true vector format that can be edited with Inkscape, Illustrator, CorelDraw, or any other vector graphics application.
AI – Another true vector format, only it is proprietary to Adobe.
EPS – This is another editable format.
PDF – Editable file that works very similarly to Adobe Illustrator format.
PNG – PNG file with a transparent background.
The logo should be sized with its largest dimension being 1920 pixels. This means that if the logo is wider than it is tall, make it 1920 pixels wide, and let the height fall where it may. Likewise, if the logo is taller than it is wide, make it 1920 pixels tall and (*) pixels wide.
