Chamber of Commerce launches logo contest for new campaign
By Heather Johnston, Executive Director, Dana Point Chamber of Commerce
Together we can build a stronger economy by dining, shopping and staying locally and supporting our Dana Point merchants.
“Shop Local” is a phrase we’ve all heard before, but one that we’re taking seriously at the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce. So seriously, in fact, that we want to give Shop Local a brand that is unique to our coastal town. We want every resident, business and visitor of Dana Point to constantly be reminded to source their goods locally, from dining, groceries and supplies, to professional services and other wares.
Here’s how we’re asking the community to get involved: the Dana Point Chamber of Commerce is soliciting logo designs that effectively portray Shop Local in Dana Point.
From Wednesday, May 22 through Friday, June 21, we will be accepting logo submissions at firstname.lastname@example.org. All submissions will be showcased on the Dana Point Chamber’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/danapointchamberofcommerce.
We’ll invite the community to vote on its favorite designs until Thursday, June 27, at which time the three logos with the most Facebook “likes” will be presented to the Dana Point Chamber staff to make the final logo selection. The winning logo will become the brand representation for Dana Point’s very own Shop Local campaign.
The designer of the winning logo will be awarded with recognition and publicity for his or her contribution, as well as a five-course dinner for four, graciously donated by Brio Tuscany Grille.
Your Chamber is encouraging the community to keep dollars here in Dana Point and drive the local economy. Thank you for your support on this endeavor.
