Logo Contest

Enter The 50th Anniversary
Logo contest

We’re calling designers from all over the world to participate in a Logo Competition for Celebrating Hip Hop’s 50th Anniversary. As Hip Hop marks this historic milestone, we look to this generation of Hip Hop creatives, designers and enthusiasts, to create the official logo of Hip Hop’s 50th Anniversary. 

Hip Hop started from people not dwelling on hopeless situations that were prevalent in 1973 but rather becoming the solution over selves. We became the answer, we were what was needed to escape the sickness, the hatred, the ignorance and poverty.

The “Emcee” gave voice to people and now that voice speaks all over the world!!

The winning design will recognize the elements Hip Hop necessary to both celebrate the 50th Anniversary while inspiring future generations to continue to grow and expand Hip Hop’s message. Hip Hop’s spirit can’t be owned or stopped.
