Design Requirements
We are looking for a new logo—a design or a design concept that captures the essence of the AOS as a new organization.

 

Entries will be judged for the style, creativity and impact of a design that can be used to integrate into web, email, and print materials of AOS. The logographic, together with our name and tagline, represent the core identifying elements of AOS’s brand.

 

Design entries may be the logographic only, or may be presented in any arrangement or configuration of the logo together with the full name of the organization—American Ornithological Society—and the tagline—Advancing Scientific Knowledge and Conservation of Birds.

 

About the AOS
The mission of the AOS will not depart from the complimentary missions of the AOU and COS:

 

"to advance the scientific understanding of birds and disseminate ornithological knowledge, to enrich ornithology as a profession and mentor young professionals, and to promote a rigorous scientific basis for the conservation of birds.”

 

AOS’s vision is “to provide an inclusive and stimulating professional home for ornithologists that supports members at every career stage, from students through retirement; to produce scientific publications of the highest quality and make them available to the widest audiences possible; to host intellectually engaging and professionally vital meetings; to pursue a global perspective; and to inform public policy on all issues important to ornithology and ornithological collections.

 

AOS long range goals are:
1. Sustain Scientific Impact Through Financial Support for Ornithological Research
2. Publish the Highest Quality and Openly Accessible Ornithological Research
3. Pursue Excellence in Organizing and Hosting Annual Conferences that Meet the Ever-Changing Needs of Ornithology and Ornithologists
4. Excel In Professional Development for Members at All Stages of Their Careers
5. Recognize and Promote Significant Accomplishments in Ornithology
6. Create and Connect a Vibrant Community of Ornithologists Throughout the Americas

Individuals serving on the panel of appointed judges are not eligible to submit entries.
