The people of Lismore have cast their votes, adjudication has taken place and this Friday, 22nd February, the winner of the ‘Brand Lismore’ competition will be announced in Lismore House Hotel.
Early this year 20 designs for a new logo for Lismore Heritage Town were shortlisted from submissions made by third level graphic design students from around Ireland. From 11th-17th February the projects were displayed in Lismore Castle Arts, St Carthage’s Hall and local people were asked to visit and vote for their favourite project. An adjudication panel nominated by Lismore Marketing Group, the instigators of the competition, then met and taking the ballot, along with other factors into consideration, selected a winner.
A €3000 prize will be awarded to the winning student and their college along with the considerable prestige of seeing their logo adopted and used as a single symbol to market Lismore and its many attractions. The prize will be presented in a ceremony on 6th May when the 400th anniversary of the granting of a charter to Lismore is celebrated.
