Sadly, this always happens to designers.  When the city pays its electric bill, do they offer Central Hudson an "honorarium"?

Thanks Marko.  I think that for a logo used by the City for civic purposes, some designers might gladly donate their services.  But if the logo is to be used by businesses and Main Street Merchants as well, as part of their centennial marketing, it would be quite unfair to ask one small business (designer) to donate services to other profit making businesses.  It would be like asking stores in town to give free merchandise to Beacon residents.

Originally we were asking the designers to do the work pro bono BUT Beacon Arts has generously decided that they will give a $300 honorarium to the chosen designer(s).

What is the fee for the logo that is selected?
