INDIANAPOLIS — Calling all designers!

The city of Indianapolis is looking for a local artist to design a logo for its bicentennial celebration next year.

The city is looking for people of all ages and disciplines for its celebration, which begins in June 2020 and runs though the summer of 2021. Only Marion County residents are eligible to enter.

The bicentennial celebrates two events in the founding of Indianapolis – when many families built cabins along the east bank of the White River in 1820, and when the city was named in 1821.

The entries should use one or more of the Bicentennial Commission themes: history, civic pride, innovation and legacy.
After a committee reviews the works, three prizes will be awarded:

  • $5,000 to the overall winner
  • $1,000 to the winner of the youth category (with half as a 529 contribution)
  • $500 to people’s choice winner

The competition is open now and ends Sept. 30. Winners will be announced Jan. 2020.
