LOGO COMPETITION

BE PART OF THE STORY

The Heathfield & District Agricultural Society has become a Company Limited by Guarantee and will now be known as Heathfield Agricultural Show.

To mark the occasion, and to celebrate our 75th anniversary show, we are launching a competition to design a creative, innovative and professional logo. The new logo may be used on the Show website, social media sites, business cards, letterhead, posters, souvenir trinkets and gifts, or anywhere else the Show chooses.  Please find below the official requirements and rules of the competition.

The logo’s design should reflect the ethos of the Show remembering that the roots of the Show are in agriculture and the rural community, focusing on local produce, products and suppliers of the High Weald area.

The logo must be appropriate for a professional business setting.
