Aucklanders wanting to contribute their ideas on the Auckland Council’s logo have just eight days to put their entry in. 

Judging panel chair Bob Harvey says hundreds of entries have been received so far. 

“There is a big variety of designs with a lot of good ideas and some interesting gems amongst them. I know it is going to be a difficult task to find a winner. 

“But we want more entries – it doesn’t matter if people are not designers, although we certainly welcome entries from professionals. It is about the core idea, the base concept, which is the most difficult part of the process,” he says. 

“Once we have found our winner, we will take the concept and develop it to be displayed on everything from the new council’s letterheads to its headquarters.” 

The competition closes Friday, 19 March at 5pm. Details are available on  or by calling 307 7274 for those in the Auckland toll-free calling area, or 0800
