PORTUGAL THE MAN

LOGO DESIGN CONTEST

Portugal The Man’s career began in their home state of Alaska and they are now one of the most successful and recognized rock bands of the last decade, touring the globe and selling millions of records and winning a Grammy along the way. Listen up as Zach from Portugal The Man talks about the contest, the second in the NCAC Let Me Speak Design Campaign Series. 

CONTEST DETAILS

 Always an extremely active political and social band, in 2019 Portugal The Man put together a more formal and structured effort and started the PTM Foundation which would address social, health and environmental issues primarily through the lens of Indigenous Peoples. In 2020, the band and their foundation successfully fought against the banning of five books in their hometown school district. Subsequently, the band donated 2,000 copies of the books to a local bookstore for free distribution in their local community. When Portugal The Man launched their campaign in opposition to the book ban they created this logo.

They encouraged supporters to “steal” the logo and make it their own. In the spirit of that campaign Portugal The Man, in partnership with National Coalition Against Censorship asked you, the designer to do the same. 

The submission period and voting period are closed.

We received 90 submissions and over 2,600 fan votes! The voting will help decide the finalists. Members of Portugal The Man’s team will select the Grand Prize Winner. 

We have some great prizes set aside for this contest! The Grand Prize winner will receive $250 in cash, a Yeti cooler, and the design will be put on merch in the PTM Foundation store with all proceeds going to NCAC and credit going to the designer.

The Grand Prize winner will be announced live during NCAC’s virtual event on November 11, 2020. By registering for this event, your spot will be reserved to participate in the fundraiser and be the first to know when the winners are revealed.
