CALL FOR TENDER: DEVELOPMENT OF LOGO FOR THE ERASMUS+ PROJECT “St'ART”
Four European partner schools working together in the Erasmus+ project St’ART call for tender for the development of a logo representing the project St’ART. The aim of the tender is to make the project recognizable at the participating schools and in the general public.
The project St’ART offers students from the participating schools to gain new skills through various workshops and helps them to be more involved in community developments by investigating the needs of people living in cities and by developing activities meant at raising awareness around active citizenship. Furthermore they have the opportunity of increasing their awareness about the value of creativity as a possible instrument for social change.
The aim of the tender is the development of the project logo. The logo must incorporate the assets of the project, i.e. the importance of art as a power to change things, in particular by using its strength to describe our cities and think them as communities, as places where to meet and exchange experiences. The key word could be ART WANTS TO LIVE THE CITY for giving it new vital impulse. Other values could be co-operation, team-work, partnership, exchanges, communication, etc
The final design has to include the words St’ART, and/or an accompanying image.
Participants have to present combinations of the elements mentioned above.
All students from the four partner schools are invited to participate in the tender. The call for tender will be published on the official project web site and on the respective school web sites.

6. Evaluation committee:
- two teachers from each of the four partner schools – eight in total
- two students from each of the four partner schools (not competing in the tender) – eight in total
Committee members do not vote for designs made by students from their own school.
7. Deadline and participation:
Evaluation will be carried out in 2 stages - school voting and international voting.
Students hand in their designs to their mentors, who thereafter send them in electronic form to the drive folder of the local coordinator under a code name - names of students and schools must not be part of the file name.
The selected designs must be sent in electronic form to a folder on drive.google.com by November 26, 2018.
Students must submit their designs in pdf format (minimum of three pages of A3 paper format)
on the first page there should be a black-and-white design (different sizes of the logo; positive, negative and the outline of the logo, the name of the project, possible combinations of symbols or other images)
on the second page there should be colour solutions and combinations with colour definitions
on the third page possible applications should be presented
if one student has designed several applications, more pages can be added
Apart from that, students must submit a written argumentation of their designs in pdf file format (A4 paper format).
Between November 26 and November 29, a committee composed of 2 teachers and 2 students will evaluate the submitted works applying the point criteria mentioned above. They must choose up to 6 the best works.
Until November 29th school stage will have been completed in all partnership countries and the local project coordinators will have sent the maximum of 6 best logos to the drive folder.
Then again a jury composed of 2 students and 2 teachers will vote for the best designs applying the point criteria as in the school stage. However, they will not be allowed to grade the logos from their own country.
The stage finishes on December 4. Until then the local coordinator will have completed a table with their points in the drive folder.
The committee will announce the winner by December 5, 2018. The committee's decision is final.
Students who have been awarded the first three places get a diploma for having successfully participated in the international tender for the Erasmus+ project St’ART. The committee can also decide to give the winning students a special prize.
The author of the winning design has moral rights and will be named in the impressum on the project webpage. Since the project does not provide for money compensation, the author of the winning design cannot claim it. All the participants agree to use the winning logo solely for the purposes of the project and the presentations of the project even after its termination. The winning design must not be used outside the project. The non-winning designs can also be used inside the project and when presenting the project. The authors of the non-winning designs also have moral rights and their names should be listed when using their solutions.
Those participating in the project fully agree with all the rules and provisions of this tender.
