2018 AKA Convention Logo

Introducing the 2018 AKA Annual Convention Logo


AKA Convention Logo Submission 2018 PNG


We would like to send a big thank you to Jim Desrosiers, for submitting this logo that would go on to be selected as THE logo for the 2018 AKA Annual Convention. This year we will be enjoying the bayou breezes of Shreveport, Louisiana, October 15th-20th. We think he made a fun, modern, and engaging logo that not only represents the AKA, but proudly focuses on the great city of Shreveport. For this winning logo submission he will be winning free entry into the Convention, along with all of the praise and accolades that we can shower upon him. When you see him on the flying field, or if you see him at the Convention, please take a second to go up and thank him for his artwork.

A big thank you to the other 8 people that submitted a logo for this year. It wasn’t an easy choice and required quite a bit of deliberation from the Convention Committee folks. Each submission could have stood alone as a great logo for the convention and we would be proud to call it ours, but, like the hit movie Highlander there can be only one.

(AKA Members and Convention attendees are permitted to use this logo for their own personal, non-commercial purposes. For non active AKA Members, the general public, or for media purposes please contact convention@aka.kite.org for usage)
