Deadline Closing for Marian Shrine Logo Design Contest
Time is running out for Catholics in the Johannesburg archdiocese to take part in the Mother of Mercy Marian Shrine slogan, logo and statue design contest. The project committee has extended the deadline to January 31 and is inviting Catholics to submit an original drawing or logo design in accordance with the theme “Mary Mother of Mercy”.
Open to Johannesburg Residents
The competition is open to all who live in Johannesburg.
Specifications for the logo require that the design be simple, attractive and easily identifiable.
The design must depict something of relevance or authentic to the Johannesburg archdiocese and should be restricted to about four principal colours. The design may also be done in an abstract form so long as it is understandable and not too complicated.
The statue design needs to be easily identified with Johannesburg and the colour should reflect the colours of Our Lady.
A short sentence which could symbolise devotion to Mary Mother of Mercy must be included and the slogan, not exceeding ten words, must be written at the bottom of the sheet used for the logo.
Hand-Drawn on A4
Designs must be hand-drawn and submitted on A4-sized papers.
Three different prizes will be awarded for the logo, the slogan, and the statue selected.
Contestants must provide their names, surnames, dates of birth, contact numbers or e-mail addresses.
Address entries to the Office of Evangelisation, Catholic Archdiocese of Johannesburg, Private Bag X10, Doornfontein, 2028 by January 31, e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop off at the chancery office at 186 Nugget Street in Doornfontein.
The winners will be chosen by the shrine project committee. The following criteria will be used: relevance to the theme “Mary Mother of Mercy”; how well the submission reflects the Johannesburg archdiocese; and creativity and originality.
Winners will be announced on March 3 on the first Saturday of the Marian pilgrimage at the Mother of Mercy Shrine in Magaliesburg.
