Contest to design logo for festival

Have your say

CALLS have gone out to schools, colleges, and the university to design a logo for next year’s Shakespeare festival to be held in Portsmouth.

The competition is open to all those aged 16 or over in full or part-time education.

Organisers at the University of Portsmouth are keen to encourage creativity and will be handing out at £200 prize to the winning designer.

The Much Ado About Portsmouth festival is being planned for April 2016, on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death.

The organisers are relying on community resources to support the festival and raised the £200 prize money for the logo competition through a crowd funding website.
