Calling All Artists & Designers: BUCS Needs You! 30/11/2018

With the centenary of University sport fast approaching in 2019, BUCS needs your help to celebrate this historic occasion

100 years ago, the 11 founding Universities met in Manchester to finalise plans for the first ever athletics championship, held in May 1919. This meeting formed the Inter-varsity Board of England and Wales, the first body to represent University sport. The founding universities within this board included Aberystwyth, Bangor, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Durham (who did not compete at the first athletic championships), Leeds, Liverpool, Nottingham, Sheffield and Manchester.

Centenary Logo Competition

This is where BUCS needs your help!
To mark the occasion, BUCS has launched a competition to create a distinctive “100 years of university sport” standalone logo. This logo is intended to acknowledge university sport prior to the existence of BUCS.
The winning logo will be used across centenary celebrations throughout the year from BUCS events, including BUCS Nationals & BUCS Big Wednesday, to any media related to our centenary celebrations.  

How to get involved

BUCS encourages anybody to enter!
The initial stage of the competition will run from Friday 30 November till Tuesday 4 December. A full brief and submission process can be found here
After this stage, finalist will be selected. These finalist will then be permitted to make any changes to their design should they wish prior to final submission. 

A winner will then be selected from these finalist & receive a cash prize!

Plans regarding the celebration of centenary will be released in due course. 

For any further questions regarding the competition, please contact Marketing & Communications Intern, Alexi Paxman
