The winners of the Waimate District Logo Design Competition were formally recognised and thanked at Tuesday’s Council Meeting.
Alisha Roberts won the junior section of the competition with her entry called “Just a Hop, Skip and a Jump Away”; the professional category winner was Tony Patterson’s “From the Mountains to the Sea” and the winner of the amateur category was Ashleigh Meyer with her design titled “Waimate Past and Present”.

All three winners took away prize money of $500.

Mayor Craig Rowley said in his speech the judges were delighted with the artistic skills and the unique way the entries captured the essence of our district.

He said that the entries were of such a high standard that it made selecting just one winner in each category difficult. The judges also recognised a further entry for its intricate design and awarded a ‘Mayoral Commendation’ to Janet Due Ramos.

The Mayor commented it always amazes him how much local talent there is – whether it is on the sporting field, in the educational sector or in the arts arena, the Waimate District always ‘punches well above its weight’.

The next step towards finalising the Waimate District’s new marketing and promotional logo will be when four options are released for the public to vote, which will guide the final decision being made by Council.

All entries are now on display in the library, and on Council’s facebook page.
