Two Freelance Graphic Artists Design New Logos for ACFW’s Annual Awards to Recognize Great Christian Fiction

Two Freelance Graphic Artists Design New Logos for ACFW's Annual Awards to Recognize Great Christian Fiction

Author Janette Oke and Long-Time Bethany House Editor Carol Johnson at the 2010 ACFW Awards

Terre Haute, IN (PRWEB) September 25, 2010

On September 19th, ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) held its 9th annual Christian fiction awards ceremony in Indianapolis, Indiana. Two new logos were created for the two major award categories presented at the ceremony by: Suzanne Wesley of Suzanne Wesley – Freelance Writing & Design, and Dineen Miller of Designer Girl Graphics. Both women are freelance graphic artists who are additionally members of ACFW and write Christian fiction.

“Knowing that our design efforts were going to be a part of recognizing some of the best writing in Christian fiction for years to come was humbling. Through ACFW, and this project, I have met some of the most welcoming, and amazingly talented people,” said freelancer Suzanne Wesley.

Freelance graphic artist, Dineen Miller has been assisting the ACFW with their graphical needs for the last several years. Dineen had already been approached with the logo design project when Suzanne sent her an introductory message. Suzanne had spotted Dineen’s bio on the group’s web site and noticed their shared interest in graphic design. “We seemed to bond instantly over shared design and freelance-related experiences. Several e-mails later, when Dineen expressed interest in working together on a really big logo project for ACFW I was excited to be a part of what the group was doing,” said Suzanne.

“I love serving ACFW and its members, and working with Suzanne was definitely a highlight to this particular project. I’m looking forward to further serving this growing writing community in 2011. Working as a team on future projects to bring awareness to the publishing industry that ACFW is a vibrant group full of so many talented writers and authors is a goal Suzanne and I share,” said Dineen.

The chosen logos, designed by Dineen and Suzanne, were engraved on metal pins that were given away at the awards ceremony - which is traditionally held at the end of ACFW’s three-day annual writing conference. This ceremony features two main awards; the Genesis Award, which goes to an as yet unpublished author who submits the top entry into the annual Genesis contest, and the Book of the Year Award, which is a writing competition reserved for books that are already published. In 2010, the Book of the Year Award was renamed ‘The Carol Award’ in recognition of the efforts of long-time Bethany House Editor Carol Johnson, who in 1979 took a leap of faith and published an unsolicited manuscript entitled Love Comes Softly, by author Janette Oke, during a time when Christian fiction was an unknown entity. This year, Janette Oke gracefully presented Carol Johnson with ACFW’s first ever Lifetime Achievement award at the ACFW ceremony.

The ACFW Genesis contest, held each Spring, features a multitude of categories/genres to enter, the opportunity for unbiased feedback on writers' work by published authors and experienced judges, and the chance for the Category Finalists to have their work read by Christian publishing house editors and literary agents. Writers must become ACFW members to enter, and publication is not guaranteed to the winners, but many Genesis finalists have gone on to further writing success.

The newly named ‘Carol Award’ competition is also held each Spring, and is open to the submission of any piece of Christian fiction submitted by an ACFW author(s) that was published by an ACFW recognized publisher during the previous calendar year. This contest also features multiple categories and genres for entry.

Suzanne Wesley is a commercial writer and graphic artist from Indiana who specializes in assisting businesses or individuals with creating marketing materials that make an impact from her home office. She is primarily a print designer, with over 14 years in graphics, writing and marketing related experience. She is also an unpublished author polishing drafts of her first Christian fiction manuscripts. Suzanne joined the ACFW in 2009 to improve her overall writing, and learn further about the Christian fiction industry. She also completed a two-year Christian Writer’s Guild Apprenticeship in 2009.

Dineen A. Miller writes fiction and nonfiction and is the owner of Designer Girl Graphics, which specializes in the design needs of the publishing industry. She joined American Christian Fiction Writers in 2004 and has been an active participant since, happily sharing her 23 years in the graphic and design industry as well as pursuing publication. Her first book, Winning Him Without Words: 10 Keys to Thriving in your Spiritually Mismatched Marriage, releases in February 2011 from Regal Books.

Regent’s dedication to financial aid has yielded a category-leading, best of breed software platform recently nominated as a 2008 CODiE award finalist for Best Post-secondary Enterprise Solution.
