In the 2014 MLB season, we’ll see the Wrigley Field 100th anniversary. Chicago Cubs fans have an opportunity to participate in the “Wrigley Field turns 100 Logo Contest.” Fans will compete to have their design selected as the official logo to be used during the yearlong celebration in 2014. The official logo may be featured at Wrigley Field, on merchandise and memorabilia, and possibly even on the 2014 Chicago Cubs uniforms.
“Millions of fans have enjoyed historic moments at Wrigley Field for almost a century, including Chicago Cubs and Bears games, college football, hockey, ski jumps, concerts and more,” said Alison Miller, senior director, Marketing. “The ‘Wrigley Field turns 100 Logo Contest’ gives our fans throughout the country a chance to commemorate these special memories, whether they’re a 13-year-old student or a professional graphic designer. We’re excited to see our fans’ creativity and look forward to showcasing the winning design throughout the 2014 season.”
The winning designer and a guest will receive a flight and accommodations in Chicago (if applicable) to be honored during a logo unveiling event before a late-summer home game at Wrigley Field. The winner will receive two tickets to the game, as well as a personalized 2014 jersey.
Participants can upload an original, creative design for a logo by Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. CST. A group of finalists will be posted to cubs.com for fan voting in April. The final design will be unveiled at a Cubs home game later this summer. Submissions must be in .jpg, .gif or .png file formats, not exceeding two megabytes in size. Official rules, an upload form and examples of entries are available at cubs.com/logocontest.
