URA Logo Contest — We Have A Winner
After a two month process that included a three-phase selection process — committee review, membership survey, and executive board selection of the finalists — the URA is proud to announce that we have a winner of our logo contest.
Congratulations to URA member Brice Hammack. As the winner he will receive a $500 prize.
We had great feedback from our members during the survey section of the contest and received comments including “Excellent entries!”, “Nice logos” and “Good job — they are all quality logos!”
The logo will become the property of the URA and the final product may be altered for use in multiple treatments. It was great to see a diverse and talented pool of members participate in the contest, and we look forward to their continued participation in other activities and events.
Thank you to all who participated in identifying a new identity for the URA.

March 14, 2013 Announcement:
The URA is seeking a new logo, and where better to look for a designer than among our very own talented and diverse members? If you are interested and think you have a winning idea, please give it a shot and submit your design by May 1, 2013. The winner will receive a $500 award.
When designing, please keep in mind that a good candidate will:
- Include “URA” in large type and “Union of Rutgers Administrators” in smaller but still legible type.
- Incorporate Rutgers Red (PMS 186) and AFT Blue (PMS 293). The logo may use just these two colors or may also include white, as the current logo does.
- Look great in color and black and white and be usable in multiple treatments.
- Be visually compatible with the AFT national logo with which it often appears on newsletters, t‑shirts, and other official materials.
- Will not, for legal reasons, resemble the Rutgers logo or include elements from it (such as the official block or script Rutgers R or the Rutgers seal)
Please submit entries in high resolution PDF or JPEG format and for every design, submit two versions – one in color and one in black and white to email@example.com. Each contestant may submit more than one design.
Even if you are not entering the contest, stay tuned because we will be asking members to vote on their favorite submission. Contestants must be signed, full dues-paying members. Please be aware that any chosen submissions become property of the URA-AFT organization.
