30th Anniversary Photo Contest

We challenge you to take the most creative picture with our 30th Anniversary logo!

This contest will run throughout 2014, so there are many chances to win! We’ll pick a monthly winner and a year-round winner will be decided by the public.


How to participate:

  1. Print the CircusWest 30th Anniversary Logo. Click HERE to print. 
  2. Take a creative picture (no selfies) including the logo in a way that is clearly visible and legible. The logo can be printed in colour or black and white, but no colour alterations are permitted. You are also welcome to use the logo in other creative ways (e.g. draw it on the sand, ice a cake).
  3. Upload the photo to our Facebook Page – CircusWest Sheer Verve OR share it on Instagram and tag circus_west.

Photos are accepted from January 1st till November 30th, 2014 and will be judged by a CircusWest panel on creative use of the logo and aesthetic appeal.

We will pick a winner for every month from January-November of 2014 and the selected photo will be announced on the following month on social media and our newsletter. Each monthly winner will receive a small prize (CircusWest branded water bottle, Verve store gift-certificates, and more!) and will be one of the finalists for the year-end Photo of the Year selection. Monthly winners and additional wildcard finalists will be selected by a CircusWest panel and the Photo of the Year winner will be judged and picked by the public on social media in December. The Photo of the Year winner will receive a grand prize that will be announced in 2014.

By entering this contest, you are giving CircusWest Performing Arts Society unlimited licence to use the photo submitted.
