New Zealand and Thailand celebrate 60th Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations with logo design competition


The New Zealand Embassy, Bangkok and the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs are organizing a variety of activities throughout 2016 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of bilateral relations between Thailand and New Zealand.
As part of these activities, His Excellency Mr. Ben King, New Zealand Ambassador to Thailand, is inviting members of the public to submit entries for a Logo Design Competition, reflecting the theme of “New Zealand-Thailand, Looking to the Future”. This theme captures the future of the relationship between New Zealand and Thailand at a government, business, cultural and people-to-people level; emphasizes the two countries’ long-standing relations and close ties; and highlights their commitment to deepening bilateral relations and cooperation in areas such as security, trade, investment, science, technology, innovation and education.

Logo designs must be sent to before midnight on Friday 18 March. All entries must be in JPEG format, between 3MB-5MB in size. The email must include the designer’s preferred contact phone number and email address, as well as a short (few sentences) description of the design. The logo submissions will be judged by a panel comprising members of the New Zealand Embassy in Bangkok and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand, and honourable invited judges. The prize winner will be announced on Tuesday 22 March 2016.

The winner will receive a grand prize of a Thai Airways round-trip flight for two from Bangkok to Auckland, New Zealand and a week of free English-language training for two people sponsored by Auckland University of Technology. The prize will be awarded at the 60th Anniversary reception on Tuesday 29 March 2016.
