The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is looking for someone to create a new Maryland Seafood logo. The winning design will be used to in seafood marketing programs throughout the State.

"As we develop new opportunities to promote the goodness and value of Maryland seafood, we want to update the campaign with contemporary artwork," said Steve Vilnit, DNR Fisheries marketing director. "Something more fresh, if you will."

The new logo should be suitable for both online and printed promotional material and should work in both color reproduction and grayscale printing. All artwork must be converted to digital and should be no less than 300dpi.

The creator of the winning design will enjoy a Chesapeake Bay trip for five where they will harvest their choice of Maryland’s three prime native seafood species ─ blue crabs, striped bass or oysters.

Applicants must send their artwork digitally to Kelly Barnes at kbarnes@dnr.state.md.us.

All entries are due by 5 p.m. on June 30, 2012. The winner will be chosen by the Maryland Seafood Commission and announced in July.
