The two bottom logos are NEW CONCEPTS as of 10/22/2108
AVA is looking to update its logo. The contest is open to all AVA members. We now have FIVE entries. All are from AVA member Sister Therese Poli. Although these are excellent entries and they  certainly are a great start, we would like to see a few more ideas. If you have an interest, but have never designed a logo or you are wondering where to begin, just search the web for "designing a logo." You will be overwhelmed with inspiration.

The logo must have a 3-2 aspect ratio. The aspect ratio of the 35mm camera frame is 3:2. Almost all digital single lens reflex cameras, regardless of sensor size or megapixels, use the 3:2 aspect ratio. It simply means that the frame is one and a half times as wide as it is high. Sister There's logos are a fine example of this size.

While you can enter a low resolution jpeg or png file your original image must be a minimum of 300 dpi and it needs to look good in both color and black and white (grayscale). Of course, you can always enter a sketch. We can photograph it. The contest winner will get a year’s membership, whatever membership you have now, free for the next year.
