Submission Guidelines
The purpose of the contest is to design a logo for the NCBA collaboration beer “Pyrite Pale Ale”. The logo will be used online, in print and on merchandise in coordination with Motley Brews and the Great Vegas Festival of Beer.  The final version of the logo will need to be suitable for high quality printing.

Because of the requirement to register the logo as a Trade Mark, Entrants should take care to ensure that their Entries are not in any way similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images. A logo that cannot be registered as a Trade Mark, no matter how well crafted, cannot win the Contest.

The logo must contain the name of the beer, “Pyrite Pale Ale”, and brewers, “Nevada Craft Brewers Association” or “NCBA” as well as “2013 Great Vegas Festival of Beer” or “2013 GVFB”. No other text may be used.

Due to the requirements for high quality printing and re-sizing Entries must submitted in scalable vector graphic format (EPS). We advise against the use of halftones and gradients unless created inside a vector graphics program. Color in this version must be CMYK, no spot colors.

JPGs 1000×1000 pixels of the logo are also requested so that entries can be posted to Motley Brews and NCBA member web sites without the need for conversion.
