MANILA, Feb. 22, 2013—In an effort to promote culture, the Episcopal Commission on Culture (ECC) of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines has organized a logo and poster making contest for Catholic Cultural Centers (CCC) in the Philippines.
Open to all high school and college students as well as seminarians, who have a gift in digital arts, the winning logo will serve as the official and exclusive logo of the CBCP’s Commission on Culture, while the poster will be posted on all Catholic Cultural Centers in the country and shall be sent to the Pontifical Council for Culture in Vatican City.
Sr. Mary Anthony Basa, PDDM, ECC’s executive secretary said the contest is one of the commission’s effort to re-activate among faithful the living out of their Catholic faith in line with the celebration of the Year of Faith and the New Evangelization.
Basa also said the activity will be part of establishing a venue for New Evangelization or Gospel Zone.
The logo’s mechanics should have an integration or meeting of Faith and Culture in its elements and must be computerized, with color of any shape with high resolution and may or may not have any text or word. The poster should project an image of the Catholic Cultural Center as a Gospel Zone or a Venue for New Evangelization where faith and culture meet.
Form should be computerized, colored and in a portrait position with the size of 20”x30” with High Resolution so it can be reprinted in cloths or tarpaulins for the poster.
Submitted entries should have a brief explanation of the logo and poster with the name of the institution and student participant bearing his or her brief profile.
Basa added that both logo and poster will be judged by the six bishop members of the commission. The winning logo and poster will be launched during the 1st National Conference of the Catholic Cultural Center of the Philippines on October 14-18.
Deadline for entries from CCC’s will be on April 30, 2013 and participants may send it to the Episcopal Commission on Culture via email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax (02) 527-1925. (Jandel Posion)
