The Transcona Historical Museum is updating its look.

The museum is holding a contest to encourage current community members to submit their ideas for a new and creative logo. The contest officially kicks off June 1 as part of the Hi Neighbour Festival.

Contest organizer Dave Stewart said the criteria is fairly free, with entries judged on how well they represent the community. To open the contest to a wide variety of people, the committee is accepting both computer files and hand-drawn submissions, meaning logos must be easily reproduced to appear on letterhead, the website, and other museum merchandise.

"If it was something like a university group, you expect everything to come in with vectored files," said Stewart, who hopes to receive in the range of 50 to 75 entries. "But we want to make it available to seniors and those who don’t have access to a computer."

Stewart said the judging panel is made up of community members from a plethora of backgrounds, with no one from the museum board on it. Stewart hopes to be able to display all entries in some fashion, though the logistics are still being worked out.

The winners will receive a lifetime pass to the museum and a personal guided tour of the facilities, including storage areas. The winning entry will be announced Sept. 1.

He said the tour should be special for the lucky winner.

"Our floor space is quite restrictive. There are a number of items in our upper gallery and down in the basement that have been given to the museum, and unfortunately, we can’t put them out," said Stewart. "Each little piece has its own history in Transcona."

Entries are due Aug. 1, and may be submitted by email at info@transconamuseum.com (with ‘Logo contest’ in the subject line) or dropped off or mailed to the museum at 141 Regent Ave. W., Winnipeg, MB, R2C 1R1.
