Society invites entries for logo design contest


MIRI: The newly-registered Piasau Camp Miri Nature Park Society (PCMNPS) is seeking entries for its logo design competition.

Organising chairman Richard Wong said the competition aims to encourage the public, particularly Mirians, to remember Piasau Camp’s rich biodiversity and historical heritage with its association to the discovery of oil and gas here in 1910.

“It is also to inspire people to make a personal connection with Piasau Camp and the best possible future for this natural treasure. In order to put those plans in motion, a logo is needed for the society,” Wong said in a statement yesterday.

The top prize is RM500 and a certificate of appreciation.

Each participant can send a maximum of three entries by Feb 15.

Original designs can be hand-drawn or computer-aided in Jpeg, Gif, BMP or Pict format, with both soft and hard copies to be submitted.

“The design and colours should truly portray nature and strong community participation and underneath must be written Piasau Camp Miri Nature Park Society (PCMNPS).

“The theme and concept of the logo must portray PCMNPS as a non-governmental organisation, set up by Mirians, that represents the people working closely with the authorities that establish and manage Piasau Camp as a nature park, and also other bodies having nature-related conservation, preservation and rehabilitation programmes,” added Wong.

All entries become the property of PCMNPS, which reserves the right to amend or modify logos submitted for its own use.

Completed entries should be delivered to Lot 381, 1st Floor, South Yu Seng Road, 98000 Miri.

For details call Richard (013-8303827), Mairead (012-6480750) or Cecilia (019-8555895).

Meanwhile, this month’s Hornbill Walk will be on Saturday (Dec 14) starting 4pm at the old Tenby International School car park.

All are welcome to join the free event.

Piasau Camp is expected to be gazetted as a nature reserve by the end of this month.
