Youth Artists Wanted for Better Detroit Youth Movement Branding Contest

Organization accepting art submissions until March 3 to promote “O&O” slogan

January 11, 2013

Detroit, MI – The Better Detroit Youth Movement (BDYM) is calling for young artists ages 13-19 to submit their logo ideas to promote the organization’s Options and Opportunities, or “O&O,” slogan.

The winning submission will have the chance to have their logo featured on multiple accessories and clothing. The artist will also receive media exposure with BDYM, a gift card to the retailer of their choice, and has the potential to make a percentage-based profit on the amount of goods sold using his/her logo.

O&O is a slogan to encourage youth to embrace new beginnings with every option and opportunity they are offered. The purpose of O&O is to provide youth with resources from organizations around their city to advance themselves in all areas of life. Resources include jobs, programs, clubs, organizations – anything that potentially provides someone with a new chance to pursue something that they’re interested in. The end result of O&O is for those who have been impacted by the slogan to inspire others to find their new beginning through the options and opportunities offered around them.

To be eligible, artists must reside in Wayne, Oakland, or Macomb counties. If selected, artists must be able to provide proof for their date of birth. Files can be submitted in JPEG, EPS, PNG and GIF. Sketching will also be accepted as long as they are in PDF form.

Entries should include the following:

  • Full name
  • Mailing address
  • Best phone number to be contacted
  • Date of Birth
  • Email address

All submissions should be sent to Cedric Brown, Better Detroit Youth Movement Marketing and Media Director at For more information contact Cedric at (313) 313-3199 or his email address.
