Call for entries: Good Governance Symbol Design

At the conclusion of the 2011 Good Governance Conference, participants resolved to have an ongoing good governance campaign. The participants further resolved that the campaign will be anchored in a recognisable good governance symbol and a Charter or Framework.
The Good Governance initiative is aimed at creating a collective national good governance consciousness. It is a multi-stakeholder initiative led by institutions supporting democracy, other oversight agencies and civil society.
The Public Protector is running a competition for the design of the symbol which will represent good governance in the similar way the red ribbon is a symbol for the HIV/AIDS campaign.
Young adults aged between 18 and 35 are invited to design and submit entries for possible selection. Family members/ relatives of Public Protector staff are not eligible for the competition.
The design must be accompanied by a narrative of the meaning of the symbol in terms of the colour and shape and why the symbol is appropriate to connote a commitment to good governance.
The copyright of the winning design will vest with the Good Governance partner institutions.
The winning designer will receive a laptop valued at R10 000. The closing date for all entries is 11 October 2012
