2018 Logo Contest

Our regional logo needs a makeover!

The new design should reflect both our affiliation with SCBWI and the unique attributes of our Maryland/Delaware/West Virginia area. It will debut this fall on the regional website, social media, brochures, posters, and other swag. For inspiration check out the banners on other regional websites and the Rocky Mountain Chapter’s post on their recent logo update. 

Did we mention prizes? The winner or winners get free registration for the March 2019 annual regional conference, to be held March 22-24, 2019 at the Maritime Conference Center in Linthicum, MD.

The contest is open to all SCBWI members. Email a jpeg of your submission to Illustrator Coordinator Cheryl Mendenhall at The attachment must be no larger than 1MB with the filename format logocontest_yourname.jpg. Please include 2018 Logo Contest in the subject line.
