The entries for the PNA Logo Design Competition that was publicised earlier this year were voted upon by national representatives to the 28th PNA Meeting, and the winning design was endorsed at the PNA Ministers Meeting held in Niue on 17th May 2009.
Although eight countries (Nauru, Federated States of Micronesia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu ) are Parties to the Nauru Agreement (PNA), only four countries submitted designs. But in total, 35 logo designs were submitted by 11 individuals from these 4 countries, and most were of extremely high quality.
The PNA logo will form part of the letterhead for official communications from the PNA Chair, and will be the logo of the new organisation that has been proposed to assist parties to implement PNA joint fishery development initiatives and management arrangements.
Note: PNA stands for the Parties to the “Nauru Agreement Concerning Cooperation in the Management of Fisheries of Common Interest”. The chairship of the PNA Group rotates between Parties, and Nauru handed over to Kiribati last month.
