InterPlanetary Festival Logo Competition

The Santa Fe Institute seeks an original logo for our inaugural InterPlanetary Festival. To represent our InterPlanetary future, we're looking for a design that is aspirational, futuristic, streamlined, clean, dynamic, and powerful.

The winning designer will receive $1000 and recognition on SFI's website and social media. The submission deadline is March 15, 2018.

InterPlanetary Festival

Part of a larger InterPlanetary Project, the first annual InterPlanetary Festival will draw space enthusiasts from around the world to Santa Fe for a celebration of human ingenuity, June 7-8, 2018. The festival will transform the Railyard District with an expo showcasing innovation and technology for space exploration. Concurrent with the expo, participants can enjoy open-air concerts, games, lectures and panel discussions, a Sci-Fi film showcase, art walks, talks, and installations, a costume contest, and interactive events centered around InterPlanetary topics and citizen science.
