iconic “Dancing Lady” logo is preparing for a makeover.

Artists are able to re-design the logo, and add in elements of the original logo — although it is not required. Artists of all kinds are welcome to submit art for the contest.

“We are looking for her to be re-imagined in the form of a new logo, to both honor the history of the Manistee Civic Players and embrace the future,” Kendra Carr, MCP board member, said in a previous story.

The top three finalists will be chosen by the MCP board, and will have the chance to win a cash prize of $500. The contest also serves as a fundraiser, said Carr, supporting MCP and the local art community.

After finalists are chosen, the public is welcome to vote for a winner both online and at MCP shows. A donation at any amount will count for one vote toward any final submission.

The logo with the most money raised will be chosen as the winner, and awarded the prize. All logo designs will be accepted at theatre@manisteecivicplayers.org until Oct. 1; vector files and high resolution JPG files are recommended.

The winner will be announced on Dec. 2, after the performance of “Christmas on Angel Street” at the Manistee High School.

“This is just one way we can engage with the arts community,” said Carr. “Donations will go toward enriching, entertaining and educating the community in the coming year, through quality theatrical experiences, educational programming and volunteering opportunities.”
