Manila, Philippines, June 28, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Do you have a knack for art and design?
The ASEAN Centre for Biodiversity (ACB) is inviting graphic artists to use their skills for the environment and join the ASEAN Heritage Parks (AHP) logo contest. Entries will be accepted until 31 July 2013.
The logo design contest aims to create greater recognition on the significance of AHPs, which represent the very best of species and ecosystems in the region. AHPs are protected areas of high conservation importance, preserving a complete spectrum of representative ecosystems in the ASEAN region.
“Many are not aware that ASEAN has the first network of protected areas in the world dubbed as AHPs. The winning logo could be a tool to promote AHPs as public attractions and will serve as a trademark to pinpoint a certain protected area as an AHP,” Atty. Roberto Oliva, ACB Executive Director, said.
There are currently 32 AHPs in Southeast Asia: Brunei Darussalam – 1; Cambodia – 2; Indonesia – 3; Lao PDR – 1; Malaysia – 3; Myanmar – 7; Philippines – 4; Singapore – 2; Thailand – 4; and Viet Nam – 5.
Inclusion in the list of ASEAN Heritage Parks means that they are the very best of the protected areas of a country, and fit to represent the unique natural heritage that characterized the ASEAN region.
A cash prize of USD 1,000 awaits the winner. The awarding ceremony will be held during the 4th ASEAN Heritage Parks Conference on 1-4 October 2013 in Cagayan de Oro City, Philippines.
The contest is open to residents of ASEAN Member States: Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Viet Nam. Participants may submit as many entries as they can.
