Calling all Pacific artists, students and community members.
The Pacific Community (SPC), in conjunction with the Council of Pacific Arts and Culture, calls for submissions from its member countries and territories. The winning logo will be used for a new visual identity and branding for a newly established Pacific Week celebration that will be commemorated annually across the region.
Logo Contest Official Rules
The contest aims to design a logo for the Pacific Week celebrations.
While international commemoration days provide an opportunity to join with the global community in celebrating and marking specific days and issues of significance, a Pacific Culture week will allow for hosting activities that raise the cultural profile both nationally and at the regional level. Pacific Culture week may occur at any time between June to August, allowing countries to self-determine the exact week dedicated to this celebration in line with their respective national culture calendar of events.
For more information, please refer to the Pacific Regional Culture Strategy 5-Year Implementation Plan https://purl.org/spc/digilib/doc/c3tvy.
