Market Square Day Logo Contest to Honor the PNH400

Pro Portsmouth Announces Annual Market Square Day
Logo Contest Honoring Portsmouth’s 400th Anniversary

PORTSMOUTH, NH. April 5, 2023. The Seacoast’s premier Downtown-festival organization,
Pro Portsmouth, will produce the 46th Annual Market Square Day Festival and Road Race on Saturday, June 10th.

Each year, the group looks to the artists of the Seacoast to create a logo for Market Square Day. Once again, the ‘Call to Logo Artists’ is your opportunity to create a logo that lives on for years. Since 1978, Market Square Day has taken place in the heart of the City and Pro Portsmouth looks to the artists of the community to put their signature on the 2023 Logo design and message

This year, Pro Portsmouth has dedicated its event logos to the celebration of City’s 400th anniversary, so the inclusion of historic imagery is important.

Please incorporate the text ‘Market Square Day 2023’ as well as “A Pro Portsmouth Event or Produced by Pro Portsmouth” – into the design.
