Copenhagen Theatre Circle (CTC) is the oldest English-language theatre company in Denmark, having produced high-quality drama for the general public in Copenhagen since 1968. 

That’s an impressive 44 years (just six years until their diamond jubilee – that’s going to be a big party), which might explain why its management feel it’s time for a change, starting with its logo.

So calling all the graphic designers out there, here’s a chance to earn a little pocket money by designing the CTC’s new logo.

“In recent years, the Copenhagen Theatre Circle has been expanding rapidly,” explained CTC chairman Frank Theakston

After seven productions in 1998 and 1999, the CTC hit a barren patch, producing just five plays over the following seven years. However, things began to pick up in 2007, and the group has produced six productions since April 2010. It now aims to produce at least three major stage productions a season, including a traditional British pantomime at Christmas.

“We’re therefore commissioning a new design concept for its internal and external communications,” continued Theakston.

“The designer’s task is to comprise the design of a new logo, together with a visual and typographical palette, with the aim of compiling overall style guidelines for our communications.”

The winner of the competition will receive 7,500 kroner.

The CTC also organises play readings, improvisation courses and social events for its members, and is increasingly moving into ‘fringe’ activities such as staged readings, theatre sports, film projects, workshops and ‘happenings’.

The CTC is fully self-supporting through membership fees and box office takings at public events.

To enter the competition, please e-mail before 30 June and you will be sent more detailed information. The submissions deadline for the project is 31 August.
