SPD 50th-Year Logo Contest

Help us celebrate 2020 as the 50th year of the Solar Physics Division

The Solar Physics Division of the American Astronomical Society was born in 1970, making the year 2020 the 50th anniversary of the division. The SPD Committee is offering a $100 prize for the best 50th-year SPD logo, which will be used in promoting the 2020 SPD meeting. We also plan to use the winning logo for a pin that will be made available at the meeting. To spur your thinking, an example of a possible design is shown at left. The contest is open to anyone--scientists, students, spouses, family, and friends. Submitted designs must be provided royalty-free, one submission per person.

Please submit your design by March 27, 2020, to spd.secretary@aas.org. The decision on the winner will be made by the SPD Committee and is arbitrary and final. Some tweaks to the winning design may be requested as necessary to tailor it to specific uses. The prize will be presented at the 2020 meeting.
