A newly formed non-profit group is gaining momentum ahead of its inaugural festival in August.

The Cranbrook Multicultural Society is gearing up to bring the region’s first Multicultural Festival to Cranbrook’s Rotary Park on August 16.

“The multicultural festival we are putting on in August will be the first festival that celebrates diversity in Cranbrook and neighbouring community. This is a free event,” said society member Coco Seitz.

“We are a not-for-profit organization who promotes multicultural awareness and mutual respect through celebrating our diversity.”

Now, the society is seeking submissions to a logo contest that is running throughout March.

The society is looking for a vibrant visual identity and a logo that is creative, innovative and professional.

The logo should be recognizable and help promote the organization’s mission, “to promote multicultural awareness and mutual respect through celebrating our diversity.”

The winner will receive a $150 Visa gift card.

The contest begins on March 1, 2014. Submissions will be accepted through March 31, 2014. Winners will be announced on the society’s website, social media websites and by direct contact to the winners’ email address. Up to 20 logo designs will be displayed during the Multi-cultural Festival.
