One of the features of Islandora events is the t-shirt given to all attendees. Every camp has its own logo, and so does each conference. We want to give a free registration and an extra t-shirt to the Islandoracon attendee who comes up with the best logo to represent our second conference.

Here are the first two:

Entries will be accepted through July 1st, 2019. Entries will be judged by the Planning Committee and a winner will be selected and announced in early July.

Here are the details to enter:

The Rules:

  • Conference Registration is not necessary to enter; anyone with an interest in Islandora is welcome to send in a design - however, the prize is a free registration, so you'll have to be able to come to the event to claim it.
  • Line art and text are acceptable; photographs are not.
  • You are designing for the front of the shirt for an area up to 12 x 12 inches. Your design must be a single image.
  • Your design may be up to four colours. The t-shirt colour will be determined in part by the winning design.
  • By entering the contest you agree that your submission is your own work. The design must be original, unpublished, and must not include any third-party logos (other than the Islandora logo, which you are free to use in your design) or copyrighted material.

The Prizes:

  • One free registration to Islandoracon (or a refund if you are already registered)
  • An extra t-shirt with your awesome logo
  • Bragging rights

How to Enter:

  • Please submit the following by email to
    • Your full name
    • A brief explanation of your logo idea
    • Your logo entry as an attachment. Minimum 1000 x 1000 pixels. Images in .eps or .ai format are preferred. We will accept .png and .jpg for the contest, but the winner must be able to supply a high resolution VECTOR art version of their entry if it is selected as the winner. Don't have a vector program? Try Inkscape - it's free!


  • Multiple entries allowed.
  • Submissions will be screened by the Islandora Planning Committee.
  • By submitting your design, you grant permission for your design to be used by the Islandora project, including but not limited to website promotions, printed materials and (of course) t-shirt printing.
  • We reserve the right to alter your image as necessary for printing requirements and/or incorporate the name and date of the conference into the final t-shirt design. You are free to include these yourself as part of your logo.
  • The Islandora Planning Committee reserves the right to make the final decision.

To launch the 2019 Islandoracon on October 7th, we will have a set of half-day workshops, including an "Intro Islandora" track for those who are new to the software and want a crash course to enhance their engagement for the rest of the conference. For more advanced users, we have an overview of the ISLE system for deploying and maintaining Islandora with Docker, and a dive into Drupal plugins to extend Islandora 8.

Intro Track:

  • Intro to Islandora 7
  • Intro to Islandora 8

Intermediate Track:

  • ISLE: Installing and Managing Islandora with Docker
  • Drupal Plugins

These half-day workshops are included in the price of general registration and do not require any additional registration (although we may send out a sign-up sheet to keep track of numbers). You are welcome to move back and forth between tracks.

You can view the full schedule here. Conference information and and registration here.
