Contest to Redesign the Update Masthead
Posted on Nov 12th, 2018

As I’m sure you have noticed, our Update format has changed. We are very excited now to be able to bring each issue in color. As a result, we are going to run a contest to redesign our masthead – all those spooky looking trees. Many, many years ago, that motif seemed to fit into the theme of our tagline – “The Natural Place To Be.” But now we think we can do better – especially in color each time. The contest begins now with the publication of this issue of the Update and will run until December 15, 2018. The Board of Trustees will judge the entries and announce the winner in the January issue of the Update. The contest is open to anyone living in Westridge. The theme will be anything to do with our community hopefully emphasizing “The Natural Place To Be.” That’s a broad range of potential topics – nature, our people, the lake, seasonal changes, technology, the school, etc. Each entry can be made up of drawings, pictures, royalty free clipart but there cannot be any copyright issues associated with anything submitted. Additionally, each design must incorporate, “Westridge Update.” 
 
Each design submitted must fit the space currently allocated to the masthead, approximately 2½” high by 8¾” wide. It can be submitted in whatever format the submitter is most comfortable with – Microsoft Word (.docx) or PowerPoint (.ppx) or Adobe (.pdf). It can also be submitted in one of the many picture formats (.jpg, .png, .eps, .tif, or .bmp) or even hand drawn. Artwork must be submitted in high resolution, 300 dpi or higher to be suitable for printing. Additionally, it must incorporate the current title – Westridge Update – and allow for the Date, Volume # and Issue #. 
 
Alright – for those of you interested, let’s get to work. We’re all looking forward to a new design for our masthead – something to jazz-up this great publication. Entries should either be emailed to hoa@westridgeva.com or handed in at the clubhouse before the deadline – 5pm on December 15, 2018. Please include your name, address, and contact email address with your entry. The Board will select one or more winners and the masthead(s) will be used for at least one issue of the Update – it is not necessarily a permanent change. Winning designs may be modified slightly to fit the available space or allow effective printing. No other prize is offered in relation to the contest. The winner’s name(s) will be included in a future publication of the Westridge Update.
