The Weston Soccer Club is pleased to announce that it is launching a contest to design a new logo for Weston Soccer!
All current Weston residents, including Weston kids of all ages, are eligible to enter one or more designs into the contest.
The Club will require entrants to follow some basic design elements (described in the rules below) but the rest is up to you!
The winner of the contest will receive a $150 cash prize! The winner will be announced at a public ceremony to be pictured in the Weston Forum and elsewhere!
The winning logo will be launched in time for the fall 2017 season and will be used for years to come on Weston Soccer apparel such as team jerseys, shorts, sweatpants, jackets and hats, and on many other items, including water bottles, blankets and other spirit wear. The Club also may use the logo on its website and in printed materials.

1. Design Requirements
The logo MUST incorporate navy blue and gold, the colors of Weston sports.
While it is not required of the submission, if possible, please use Navy Blue with a Pantone code of “5395m” and Gold with a Pantone code of “137c”. Otherwise, you can use a generic navy blue or gold but the Club reserves the right to modify these and any other colors used in the design.
The design SHOULD include symbols or imagery that are associated with soccer and the Town of Weston (for example, you may be inspired by some of the symbols used on the Weston town flag or other town related images).
The Club is looking for an aesthetically pleasing, simple design that incorporates in some way the sport of soccer and thecharacteristics or history of the Town of Weston. Please keep in mind when creating your design that the primary purpose of the logo is to be worn as a shield or crest on a team jersey. The design should also be web and apparel-friendly.
The submitter must be able to provide additional variations of the design upon request of the Weston Soccer Club, including: white background; colored background; black and white; and solid colors.
2. Design File Format
The design must be emailed to
as a JPG or JPEG file and, if possible, a vector file in .eps format. Please note that the winning design will need to be converted to .eps format. If the submitter is unable to deliver files in .eps format the Club can help convert the original files to .eps. If you have technical questions please contact Ken Gelman at
3. Submitter Representation
It is critical that only original work designed by the submitter is entered into the contest. By submitting a design, the submitter represents that he or she is the sole author and owner of the design, and that the design does not infringe any intellectual property rights of any third party, including any trademark, copyright or other intellectual property right.
4. Assignment of Design Ownership
Upon payment of the cash prize, the submitter (or his or her parent or guardian if the submitter is under 18 years of age) will be required to irrevocably assign all ownership and intellectual property rights in the design to the Weston Soccer Club. The submitter must further agree that the Weston Soccer Club will be the sole owner of the design, has the sole legal right to use the design and that the designer will not use the design in any further work (except for display in the submitter's portfolios) or offer to resell the design to anyone.
5. Design Selection
The winning design will be selected by majority vote of the Weston Soccer Club officers and directors (the “Board”) attending the meeting on which the vote is scheduled to occur. In the event no one design receives a majority of votes the two designs receiving the most votes will be voted on in a run-off.
If an immediate family member of a Club officer or director submits a design, that officer or director will be recused from voting.
The winning design will be selected based solely on the merits of the design and without favor or disadvantage to any group or individual.
The names of the Club’s officer and directors, as well as the mailing address of the Weston Soccer Club, are available at www.westonsoccer.com.
A submitter must be a current, individual resident of Weston, CT. The contest is open to Weston residents of all ages.
The prize and sole compensation/consideration for the winning submitter is $150 cash (the “Prize”). The Prize is not transferable or exchangeable for any other prize. If a winner cannot be contacted or is disqualified for any reason, Weston Soccer Club reserves the right to determine an alternate winner or to not select a winner, in its sole discretion.
8. Contest Timing
The contest will officially open at midnight on April 3, 2017 and close at 11:59pm on April 30, 2017.
The Weston Soccer Club expects that it will vote on the winning design at its next regularly scheduled meeting that follows the close of the contest. Once the winner is selected, is deemed to be eligible and agrees to assign the rights to the design the Weston Soccer Club as described above, the winner will receive the Prize and the winner and winning design will be announced.
NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OF THE FOREGOING, THE WESTON SOCCER CLUB RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MODIFY THESE RULES OR CANCEL THE CONTEST AT ANY TIME, WITHOUT NOTICE, AND TO SELECT OR NOT SELECT A WINNING DESIGN IN ITS SOLE, ABSOLUTE DISCRETION.
