CIPS 65th Anniversary Logo Competition

Design a logo for CIPS’ 65th anniversary and you could win a $250 Amazon Gift Card!

CIPS will be celebrating our 65th anniversary in 2023! In September of 1958 a conference was held at the University of Toronto to talk about common concerns of data processing workers. That conference demonstrated the value of sharing ideas, networking with fellow professionals and learning about coming changes in technology, and the practices and management of information systems. This event sparked the formation of the Computing and Data Processing Society. In 1968 the Society changed its name to the current “Canadian Information Processing Society”. 

As part of the 65th anniversary celebrations CIPS is looking for a special 65th anniversary version of the CIPS logo which will be used by CIPS throughout 2023. CIPS invites members of CIPS Provincial Societies to put their graphic design skills to use and design a CIPS 65th anniversary logo. If your logo is selected you will receive a $250 Amazon Gift Card!
