The BCA is proud to present a local annual Canada Day celebration complete with fireworks. Skip the traffic to downtown and stroll over to the community hall to see a fantastic free show. Come early to enjoy family-friendly activities and booths from local community groups. Full details of each year’s event will be added to our community event calendar as they are confirmed.

Logo Contest

Blackburn Hamlet is having a logo competition for its Canada day festivities! The goal is create a logo that will be used on social media, print advertising and web media for years to come to promote our Canada Day fireworks event.

The contest is open to contestants of all ages, local artists, and schools are welcome to participate as well. All types of images, including hand drawn and high-resolution digital artwork are welcome. Artists may submit up to three entries each on 8.5 x 11-inch paper or of equal size if sent digitally.

All entries must be made on or before Saturday, March 31, 2018 at 11:59 PM.

Logo designs will be evaluated on:

  • How well the design reflects the Hamlet’s image (current/past/future).
  • How well it incorporates other logos and colour schemes from our Community and associations.
  • How well it corresponds with Canada Day Spirit and the fireworks event.


Secondary considerations will include

  • How adaptable the design is for use on the website, apparel, posters, schedules and more.
  • How well the logo translates to other colour formats: black and white, full colour and two colour.

Entries may be submitted in person or by mail to 158 Glen Park Dr. Ottawa ON. K1B4Y4 before the entry deadline. Individuals should include their name, address and phone number with their entry, as well as any background information or narrative associated to the submission.

The Blackburn Community Association Social Director will select the winner with consultation with the Blackburn Community Association and community input.
