From Hack Wilson to Ernie Banks to Anthony Rizzo—Wrigley Field has seen it all. The celebrated venue turns 100 years old during the 2014 season, and now Cubs fans will have an opportunity to be part of the stadium’s rich history by participating in the “Wrigley Field Turns 100 Logo Contest.”
Fans will be given the opportunity to submit a design they feel best captures Wrigley Field’s century of baseball tradition. The winning design could be selected as the official logo for the yearlong celebration in 2014. It also may be featured at Wrigley Field, on Cubs merchandise and possibly on the 2014 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 of 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 airfare and accommodations to Chicago and will be honored during the logo unveiling before a home game at Wrigley Field. The winner will also receive tickets to the game as well as a personalized jersey.
Participants can upload an original, creative logo design by Feb. 28 at 11:59 p.m. CST. A group of finalists will be posted to http://www.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, and should not exceed two megabytes in size. Official rules, an upload form and examples of entries are available at www.cubs.com/logocontest.
