CARSON CITY — Plans are in the works for a year-long celebration commemorating Nevada’s 150th statehood anniversary on Oct. 31, 2014. The public is invited to get involved and express their creativity by designing an event logo for the upcoming celebration to be used in all promotional and event efforts.

The theme of Nevada’s 150th anniversary will be “Battle Born-Nevada Proud,” and all interested professional or amateur artists, designers and advertising and public relations agencies are invited to participate.

The planning committee, formed by Gov. Brian Sandoval and under the Nevada Cultural Affairs Foundation, has started laying the foundation for how the state will commemorate the special anniversary that kicks off on Nevada Day 2013.

The logo contest will be conducted through a request for proposals (RFP), available online at, or by requesting a copy from planning committee member Lori Nelson at All logo contest details, and terms and conditions, are available in the RFP document.

“One of the committee’s first goals was to make Nevada’s 150th an all-inclusive, statewide celebration and what better way to demonstrate that philosophy than launching the logo contest and inviting all Nevada residents to participate and join in the fun?” said Bob Brown, co-chair of Nevada’s 150th planning committee.

Requirements for participation include:

• The resident or company designing the logo must primarily reside in Nevada;

• Artwork must include the tagline “Battle Born - Nevada Proud”;

• Artwork must be designed and submitted by the artist free of charge to the committee;

• Final artwork must be provided as print-ready for use in a JPG, EPS or Illustrator file. Hand-drawn illustrations will not be considered;

• The logo needs to be showcased in the RFP in three different applications to show its versatility for the multitude of uses and needs; and

• The committee will fully own the logo and will use it for a variety of purposes, including but not limited to collateral materials, websites, social media, a wide variety of merchandise and licensing and official state of Nevada materials.

Submissions are due by Aug. 23 and will be judged by the planning committee. The winning logo will be unveiled at a to-be-determined Nevada Day celebration on Oct. 31, one year in advance of the Nevada’s 150th official kick-off. The winner will be publicly recognized throughout the course of the celebration by the committee as the creator of the official 150th anniversary logo.
