The Wildlife Society is seeking design submissions for the 2017 Annual Conference Logo Contest. The logo is an important characteristic of the conference, which will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and will be used frequently in the marketing and advertisement of the event. It will be displayed through multiple communication channels, such as wildlife.org, our conference website and the eWildlifer, as well as on conference t-shirts, banners and more.

The winner of the contest will be awarded $500 and will be recognized on wildlife.org, the conference website and program guide.

Entries will be judged based on visual appeal of featured wildlife species, total aesthetic appeal, and adherence to the design requirements listed below. Designers/artists of the top entries may be asked to make adjustments before a final winner is selected. All entries will become the property of The Wildlife Society.
