The Harvey Cedars Taxpayer’s Association (HCTA) is excited to invite you to be a part of our logo design contest.


The Harvey Cedars Taxpayer’s Association (HCTA) is excited to invite you to be a part of our logo design contest.  We're looking for a logo that uses the HCTA or spells out Harvey Cedars Taxpayers Association—or both - your call!


Here are a few things to keep in mind while crafting your masterpiece:

  • We’re all about that polished look, so make sure your design fits in seamlessly in a professional business setting.

  • Entries can be JPEG (.jpg) or hand-drawn. If it's the latter, we might sprinkle a bit of digital magic to make it shine.

  • Picture this—your creation needs to look drop-dead gorgeous on both small (think 2 cm x 2 cm) and large scales. We’ll be using the logo on our website, signs, newsletters, banners and other medium.


Now, let's talk about the legal stuff:

Intellectual Property:

Your genius creation needs to be 100% yours. No copying from others, and definitely not from your own previous designs. Once you hit submit, your masterpiece becomes ours to use on websites, newsletters, letterheads, posters, banners, apparel—you name it. We might give it a little tweak here and there, but we promise to make it look fabulous.


We will post entries on the HCTA website ( and allow the public to vote for the the winning entry. The contenders will grace the HCTA website, and we'll let the public vote each week. It's like a logo showdown, bracket style!


Besides the fame and glory, the winning entry gets a prize that's so good we can't reveal it just yet. You'll be notified via email, and trust us, it's worth the wait.


So, get those creative juices flowing, and let's make HCTA's logo the talk of the town!


  • The logo should incorporate HCTA or Harvey Cedars Taxpayers Association Name  (abbreviated or spelled out)

  • The logo must be appropriate for a professional business setting.
