The Contest Brief

Contest Holder Name:  dkeeley

Company Name: Pembina Gorge Foundation

Company Slogan: 

Description and What We Do: The Pembina Gorge Foundation is a newly formed foundation established to preserve and enhance the experience of the Pembina Gorge, while connecting people to positive, life-changing experiences. To develop and support historical, cultural, educational, natural and recreational opportunities and other tourism assets and services. The Pembina Gorge is an area that was formed 80 to 90 million years ago from what was once a shallow sea with the gorge showing the beach ridges and shorelines from this era. Fossils of the sea life (animals and plants) are entombed here and discovered during annual fossil digs. This area was also the birth place of North Dakota and the region referred to as the Rendezvous Region due to large rendezvous held during the fur trading era as there was once woolly mammoths and bison roaming here. ( The gorge is a peaceful, scenic natural wonderland home to four seasons of recreational and tourism activities including downhill skiing, tubing, snowboarding, kayaking, biking, extreme sports, birding, golf, hunting, summer amphitheater, cultural events, and ATV and snowmobile trails. The Pembina River, running through the gorge, is also the state's only white-water rapids with level one rapids. ( ND Parks and Recreation Department is a key partner for recreational development within the gorge alongside the Pembina Gorge Foundation.

Thank you for these submissions! The area and a main focal point of the foundation is outdoor recreation of all kinds - the elk may not be the best indication of that. The area is also rich with archeological (80 million years ago!) and more modern cultural history.

Welcome and Thank You for Choosing!

Here are some helpful hints to make sure you get the most out of our site, and your contest.


1. Please rank your submissions or post general comments a minimum of 1 time per day while your contest is running. This is required should you want to request an extension to your contest and will produce the best results from our designers.

2. Once your contest receives 40 design concepts, your prize amount will become "Guaranteed".

3. Please make the most out of our messaging and comment systems.

a) Place general comments on this main contest page to give all of the designers your preferences and what you would like to see or not see.

b) Clicking on any designers submssion will bring up a page of all submissions by that designer with an option to post private comments pertaining only to his work. (Only the contest Holder and that designer can view and post to this page)

c) Clicking on the designer username under a submission will allow you to send a completely private message to that specific designer.

4. Please "Eliminate" only those logo designs that you feel have no chance of winning your contest. (Be aware that eliminating everything may discourage participation from the designers.)

5. Please rank the designs 1 to 10 and there are also options to rank Elements you like, Colors you like, and Fonts you like. This will help guide the designers toward the design that you are looking for. For the best variety of designs, try not to keep the same design ranked #1 for an extended time as this may result in copying of that design.

6. We require that you do not ask one Designer to use elements or concepts from another Designer. The general rule is that, if a Designer was the first to use and submit the idea in one of their designs, they essentially own that concept or idea for the remainder of the contest. We will remove any deisgns that use copied concepts. Requests or ideas you have put in your Contest Brief or posted as contest attachments are fair game and open to everyone. Concepts that are considered obvious will also be fair game, for example: a dog & cat for a pet hospital, shopping bag for an e-commerce company, a tooth for a dentist, initials for a lawyer, etc.

7. Once your contest ends and is in judging mode, any designer that is ranked #1 #2 #3 #4 or #5 will be able to upload any revisions you request. Simply rank a designers entry to allow revisions to be uploaded.


Discussion Guidelines:

1. Designers and Contest Holders please always be respectful of each other, we all have the same goal.

2. Please do not criticize any design publicly, these discussions should only be held in private.

3. Designers may not post any external links to any designs.

4. Please do not ask a contest holder to view your designs or discuss any other designs.

5. Designers can not discuss copied designs on the contest pages and may submit a Logo Dispute to the Admin only.
