After careful consideration we decided to discontinue contests on StockLogos. This will be done in the following weeks. In the meantime, this page will remain as reference for existing contests.
If you can't find a pre-made logo you like in the logo store you can post a contest for our designers. On the contest page you can describe your company, your target audience, your objectives and other special requirements. Our designers from all around the world will submit dozens of options specifically designed for your requirements. You can give them feedback on the logos posted and pick a winner when the contest is closed. After you choose a winner, you will receive all files for that particular logo.
Posting contests is great way to get your logo designed because you get a huge selection of logos designed specifically according to your requirements and you only have to pay for the best one chosen by you.
How to post a contest
Register on StockLogos if you haven't already done so. Click the upload contest link. On the create contest form you can give information to our designer about your business so we can design logo that serves your business needs perfectly.
Name of Company/Product/Service field is what the logotype should be. Use the shortest version of your company or product name that you want to see in the logo. Do not include Inc. or Ltd. if you don't want to see it in your logo.
Target Audience field describes your clients or customers. Tell us who is buying your service or your product. Be as specific as possible as this determines the style and tonality of the logo. Describe a typical customer of yours.
About your Company/Product/Service field should describe what you're selling. If it's a service tell us how and what you do or if it's a product what it looks like and how it works. Feel free to attach images to better explain us your business.
Special requirements field should be used if there is information about the application of your identity that we should be aware of. For example if the logo needs to use certain colours, shapes, technology etc.
Price packages. The higher the price the more and better logos you will receive for your brief.
