Canadian Institute in Greece
Student Competition

Design a New Logo for the Canadian Institute in Greece!
A Competition for Students and Recent Graduates

Since the mid-1970s, the Canadian Academic Institute in Athens / Institut canadien académique à Athènes (in Canada) / Canadian Archaeological Institute at Athens / Institut canadien d'archéologie d'Athènes (in Greece; CAIA/ICAA everywhere) has been Canada's official representative in Greece for a wide range of educational, scholarly, and artistic endeavours, with its core mission the facilitation of Canadian archaeological activity in the territory of the Hellenic Republic. In addition to several surface surveys and excavations such as those at Karystos on the island of Euboia, Argilos in Northern Greece, and Stymphalos in the Peloponnesus, the Institute is currently involved in an underwater survey to find the remains of Persian invasion fleets from the early 5th century B.C. and has sponsored lectures and symposia in Greece and Canada on a wide range of topics, from ancient Athenian inscriptions to the Olympic Games, as well as history and anthropology in the contemporary Mediterranean.

In 2005, the Institute is changing its name. From now on, it will be known on both sides of the Atlantic as the Canadian Institute in Greece (CIG) / Institut Canadien en Grèce (ICG). This change represents a new, larger vision of what the Institute can bring to Canadian-Greek cultural interactions while continuing its original mission to serve the Canadian academic community.

This name change means that CAIA's old logo, a stylized palmette, needs to be changed as well. We at the Institute are thus asking you, our current and future members, to help by designing a new logo which will appear on all official Institute correspondence, publications, other communications and, of course, on the Institute's webpage.

The logo competition is open to Canadian students (undergraduates and graduates) and recent graduates (degree awarded within the last five years).

The creator of the winning design will receive a five-year individual membership in the Institute (among other privileges, this makes you eligible for free entry to Greece's state museums and archaeological sites), a copy of the lavishly illustrated history of the Institute, On Site: Canadian Archaeologists in Greece, soon to appear from Motibo Publishing, and your choice of one book from the Papers of the Canadian Institute at Athens series. The winner will also be given credit on the Institute's webpage. The copyright for the winning design becomes the property of the Canadian Institute.


1. Entries must include a graphic image suitable for reproduction in black-and-white that incorporates the name of the Institute as follows:

The Institute's name can appear in both official languages, i.e. Canadian Institute in Greece (CIG) / Institut Canadien en Grèce (ICG)


It can appear just in Greek — Kanadiko Institouto sten Ellada (KIE), with the English and French names appearing elsewhere on the stationery / webpage / etc., along with address / phone / fax / internet information.

2. Entries should be in .jpg or .gif file format. File size must not exceed 350KB.

3. One logo idea to each .jpg or .gif file. Filenames must include the contestant's last name plus an additional identifier.

4. The number of entries allowed to each contestant is five (5).

5. Entries should be sent as attachments to an e-mail message that contains contact information (full name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail, university affiliation/date degree(s) received) and a list of the files (filenames) attached to the message.

6. If the total size of your entries exceeds 950KB, please divide them among two or three e-mails, each containing contact information and list of files.

E-mail your entries to:

Prof. Margriet Haagsma, Dept. of History and Classics, University of Alberta, e-mail:

Dr. Stefanie Kennell, Director, CAIA/ICAA, e-mail:

The deadline for contest entries is Friday 15 April 2005, 12 midnight Pacific time.
