Celtic Connections Conference 2016

Seeking Logo for 2016 Conference
 July 18 Deadline

Two years ago, the Irish Genealogical Society International (IGSI) of St. Paul, Minnesota, and The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA) of Boston, Massachusetts, jointly planned a Celtic conference that was held in Waltham, Mass.  The resulting event was a huge success, so the two groups are uniting again to plan the second such event – in Minnesota in 2016.

The theme is set for the Celtic Connections Conference 2016 – Celtic Roots across America.  Now the committee is looking for a graphic image to represent the theme.  We invite you to participate in this process by submitting a design for the conference’s logo. The winning image will be featured on the Celtic Connections Conference website, on publicity materials (e.g., T-shirts), the conference program and brochures. 

The conference will be held in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, on August 5 and 6, 2016. The two-day event at the Doubletree Hilton Hotel will feature lectures by well-known experts in many aspects of Celtic culture, including genealogy, literature, music, history and language. (The Celtic theme expands beyond  just Irish).

If you have a talent for art and would like to submit a design for the conference, you may win a $75 gift card.   Simply design a conference logo and submit to the email below by the July 18 deadline. If you wish to include the logos of the two sponsoring organizations in the design, copies of them can be supplied.

Deadline for design submissions is July 18, 2015. Electronic submissions,vector art only (i.e., PDF, AI, EPS, SVG) formats,should be sent to: Members of the Conference committee will select a winning design by July 30, 2015.  Selected design becomes the property of IGSI.  Winning artist will be recognized/acknowledged by conference committee.
