The Museum of Policing in Devon & Cornwall has challenged the public to design it a new logo, and is offering a cash prize to the potential winner.

A competition to find the new visual identity is open to those local to the museum in Devon, Cornwall and the Isle of Scilly, and is open to all ages and abilities.

The museum said it is particularly welcome to submissions from young people keen to promote the museum, with a design that “tells our story, points to our past and inspires future generations to promote and protect the charity’s history and heritage.”

Greg White, Devon and Cornwall Museum of Policing CEO, said: “We are excited to see how our communities across Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly interpret our work, archive and collection through design, style, shape and colour.

“We are looking forward to receiving fresh ideas that are appealing, can communicate our culture and community, point to the future, and show our pride and enthusiasm in the museum and the huge amount of history that it holds.”

A winning design will feature across the museum’s social platforms, literature, website, and signage. Entries close at midnight on Sunday, January 29. If a winner is selected, the creator will win £100 and see their design officially adopted by the Museum of Policing in Devon and Cornwall.

Full details are available via the museum’s website.
