The Marine Corps Aviation Association has developed a logo contest to design the centennial logo for Marine Corps aviation in 2012.

The contest is open to Marines, civilian Marines and their friends and families. Deadline for submission is July 31, and the winning artist will be awarded $500.

Entries should depict the 100 years of traditions of Marine Corps aviation.

“We want people to be creative for the contest,” said James R. Casey, the deputy executive director of the MCAA. “In the contest we want to let them use their imagination.”

The new logo will become the face of 100 years of Marine Corps aviation, when “Air” was put in the Marine Air Ground Task Force in 1912. The MCAA previously held a similar logo contest for its 75th anniversary.

“We want a good design that we will be proud to use to represent the Marine Corps,” said Lt. Col. Ben Brewer, the centennial project officer. “It will be used throughout 2012 for all things regarding Marine Corps aviation.”

All entries should be distinguishable in both color and black and white, easily recognizable and easily recreated. The logo should also represent the Marine Corps aviation in both history and current spirit.

The logo should incorporate the past and the present of Marine Corps Aviation – on target and on time, added Casey.

Submissions must also be formatted JPEG, GIF, or TIF files. Hand-drawn submissions will also be accepted. The creator must also submit their name, command (if applicable) and contact information.

Anyone interested in entering the contest should contact mcaa@flymcaa.
