Artist Icon and Brand Guidelines
When promoting your Artist Entry, you are not permitted to use the ArtPrize logo—ArtPrize reserves that logo exclusively for events, materials, and locations produced by ArtPrize. Instead, we provide an Artist Icon that Artists can use on promotional materials.
Two rules govern usage of the Artist Icon:
- You may not alter the Artist Icon. The Icon must appear as it is, without any changes to its color, shape, etc.
- You may not use the Artist Icon for commercial purposes. Anything you create using the Icon cannot be sold. (For example, you can make promotional t-shirts that use the Artist Icon, but you cannot sell them.)
The following icons are to be used only by official Artists of ArtPrize 2021. Use of the following icons acknowledges delivery and understanding of the ArtPrize and ArtPrize 2021 Trademark and Styleguides and represents your acceptance of the terms and conditions contained within.
