2017 Camp Logo Contest: The World is Our Dojo

Deadline: March 1, 2017

We're looking for a dynamic design for our camp logo to exemplify the 2017 spirit and theme: "The World is Our Dojo", that will look great in both monotone and in full color to be used on printed materials, t-shirts, websites and more. For so many of us, martial arts training happens on and off the floor and is how we are courageously of service to the movements and communities we care about.

We are offering a $150 stipend, t-shirt (or other item) and the joy of seeing your design worn by the warriors who attend camp and beyond.

If you have friends who design, please ask if they would be interested in entering.
Send entries to camp@pawma.org by March 1, 2017.

Submission Requirements

Submit initial design in JPEG or PDF format.

All entries must be the designer's original work. It is the entrant's responsibility to ensure that their entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images. The winning designer cedes all rights for the image to PAWMA, other than bragging rights.

We’re looking forward to hearing from you and seeing your designs – thank you advance for your flexibility and creativity!
