For the 2014 convention – April 23 to 27 in Providence, Rhode Island – the Eastern Communication Association is seeking input from members and friends in an effort to help us with our visual branding. Specifically, in conjunction with the new Facebook home of ECA ( we are looking to update the organization’s logo, and we are seeking your help!

From now until Saturday, March 15 we are actively seeking logo designs to consider as the organization’s new visual brand. Designs can be submitted to All submitted designs will be blinded and then forwarded to review by an ad hoc committee, which will present its recommendations to the Executive Committee at the 2014 Business Meeting. Should a logo be selected from those submitted, the final logo as well as the logo’s designer will be prominently announced by the organization.

A few guidelines:

The Eastern Communication Association was initially established in 1910 and continues as the oldest professional communication association in the United States. As a distinguished service-oriented organization with a history of achievement in research, criticism, communication theory, and excellence in teaching, the association welcomes members who share the goals and objectives of a membership dedicated to participation in state, regional, and national activity.

For those submitting logos, please adhere to the above guidelines. Designers, please include with your logo submission your full name and contact information (mailing address, e-mail and phone number) as well as a short (between 75 and 100 world) biography. This contest is open to anyone, but the winning logo designer must be willing to transfer the rights of their logo to ECA for official use. There is no prize or payment for the selected logo, but the winning logo (and its designers) will be given full credit; as well, ECA will prominently announce their contribution to the organization.
