Klamath Salmon Festival Logo Contest Begins

Yurok Artists Are Asked to Submit Logos Before 5pm on Thursday, June 15

Please help get the word out. The Yurok Tribe’s Klamath Salmon Festival Logo Contest begins today. The Salmon Festival Committee is asking Yurok artists to develop a logo contest submission, which highlights the victory in the longstanding, tribally led effort to remove the Klamath River dams. This year’s festival will be a celebration of Klamath Dam Removal. For more than two decades, tribes from the Klamath Basin have fought tirelessly for the removal of the antiquated dams. The four structures prevent salmon and other native fish from entering more than 400 miles of historic habitat. The dams also severely compromise the function of the intricately interconnected river ecosystem and are responsible for multiple salmon kills, including the 2002 Fish Kill. The first dam will be removed later this year. By the end of 2024, the Klamath River will flow free for the first time in more than a century.

The winning artist will receive $250 as well as a Salmon Festival t-shirt and poster. The deadline for entries is 5pm on Thursday, June 15. The logos can be turned in on paper, canvas or in a digital format. The dimensions can be no greater than 11 inches by 17 inches. Please submit digital logos with a resolution of 300dpi.

Please email submissions to or drop off them at the Klamath office or Weitchpec offices. The Salmon Festival Committee will vote on the winning artwork and theme. The selected logo will become property of the Yurok Tribe. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact Matt Mais at (707) 482-1350 ext. 1356. All are invited to the Yurok Tribe's 59th Annual Klamath Salmon Festival on Saturday, August 19.
