Do you have the design that could best represent the annual First Night celebration? Pro Portsmouth is holding a contest to design the logo for this year's celebration.

The annual New Year's Eve event will begin ProPortsmouth's 46th year of promoting events in Portsmouth like Market Square Day, Children's Day, and the Seacoast Roadrace Series.

The logo can incorporate not only the holiday, city, or region, but also Portsmouth's 400th anniversary celebration, which Pro Portsmouth will be part of in 2023.

The designer of the winning logo will receive prizes of $300. The winning logo will also be front and center, and used in all First Night Portsmouth 2023 merchandise, buttons, social media, and other items used to promote the event.

Logos should be submitted by Friday, October 21, via email in a JPEG format to, or mailed to the attention of executive director Barbara Massar at P.O. Box 967, Portsmouth, NH 03802.
