Festival logo contest names three winners

To help celebrate its 50th anniversary, the Pacific Northwest Music Festival held a logo contest and chose its winner and runners-up.

The Pacific Northwest Music Festival (PNMF) celebrates 50 years of sharing countless numbers of outstanding performances with the public and supporting the region’s performing arts students, many of whom have gone on to pursue a career in the arts.

To help celebrate this anniversary, the festival held a logo contest, and many excellent entries were received, said festival committee president Bonnie Juniper.

The winner of the contest is Mackenzie Gorman, a Grade 8 student at Veritas School.

Mackenzie received a cheque for $100 and her design will be featured as the program cover of the PNMF 2015 festival, as well as on posters and promotional items that will be sold during the weeks of April 16 to May 2.

The quality of the entries demanded the awarding of two runner-up prizes of $50 as well.

Eden Viveiros, a Grade 9 student at Veritas school, submitted an entry that will be featured on the cover of the gala concert program. Eden has participated in the festival for many years.

The second runner-up is Daniel Talstra, and his entry will be used as the design on the adjudication sheets this year. Daniel participated many years ago in the festival, and was happy to contribute to the festival’s celebration of 50 years.

“The PNMF thanks all those who submitted entries, and appreciates the time and effort it took to design a logo,” said Juniper. “Please look forward to seeing these designs around town on our posters.”
