Winning artist will cop £100

The Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall is challenging all creatives to come up with a new visual identity and logo for the charity.

The competition invites the creative minds of Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly to design a timeless and memorable logo that tells our story, points to our past and inspires future generations to promote and protect the charity’s history and heritage.

Their objectives are to showcase the museum’s rich policing history across Devon and Cornwall, and that is why we are keen to seek ideas and involvement from the counties.

The competition is free to enter and open to all ages and abilities; the charity particularly welcomes ideas and designs from young people keen to promote the museum’s rich policing history.

If a winner is selected, the creator will win £100 and see their design officially adopted by the Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall. The winning designer may also feature on the museum’s website and external media.

Greg White, Devon and Cornwall Museum of Policing CEO, said: “We are excited to see how our communities across Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly interpret our work, archive and collection through design, style, shape and colour.

“The artefacts and archive material in the care of the museum tell the rich history of policing across Devon and Cornwall and it’s important to preserve this for future generations.

“We know there are a lot of talented, creative, people across the counties and we are calling on them to get involved and help us in our mission to showcase the museum’s unique collection.

“We are looking forward to receiving fresh ideas that are appealing, can communicate our culture and community, point to the future, and show our pride and enthusiasm in the museum and the huge amount of history that it holds.”
