Design services contest deadline on Tuesday


Imaginary Friends design Studios, 2511 e. 24th St., Suite a, is holding a competitio­n called “new Year new Yuma” for businesses in rural Yuma and the deadline is Tuesday.

establishe­d businesses and nonprofits are eligible to win a grand prize design worth $7,500 and many other lesser prizes for both commercial and nonprofit categories. more than $15,000 in design services will be given away.

To enter the contest, nominees must fill the following requiremen­ts: must have been in business since 2020, possess the necessary licenses for being in business, pay taxes for being in business, hold an ein number and have at least two employees on payroll who are not related to each other.

applicants must answer two questions: “Why is this business deserving of a brand makeover?” and “What would it mean to this organizati­on to win this competitio­n and prize? How would the new branding be put to use?”

Jon Perry, owner of Imaginary Friends, noted that the contest targets businesses that “just need this little extra push.” He explained: “I want to target those businesses that have been around just long enough that they are actively employing other Yumans and caring about the community enough to try to get going and help out the community by hiring and not relying upon our ridiculous­ly high unemployme­nt rate to help out the other way.”

nomination­s can be submitted online at newyearnew­yuma.com until Tuesday, Feb. 28. Following that, a panel of judges will review all applicatio­ns before selecting the winners via email on march 15.
