40th Anniversary Logo Design Contest
Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple celebrates its 40th Anniversary in 2025. We are looking for a logo that will honour this momentous occasion. The winning logo will be used across all platforms (print and digital).
Competition Rules & Guidelines
The logo MUST include the temple logo, 40th [Anniversary – optional], and 1985 – 2025.
It must be an original artwork (both traditional and digital mediums are acceptable.)
No AI-generated logos, however, you may use AI to help with a concept.
The logo should not be too fine as it will be hard to use as social media icons, display pictures and smaller print.
Logos that are either a square or a circle will be an advantage.
You may submit multiple entries.
Submit your entry to temple@iskcondurban.net. Closing date: 10 July 2024. For queries email: rasasthali@iskcondurban.net
