Part of the activities launched as a prelude to their upcoming 10th anniversary, the Local Congregation of Manukau, Ecclesiastical District of New Zealand held a logo-making contest which culminated on September 12, 2021.
During the activity, the resident minister, Brother Arturo Martin, showed to the brethren via videoconferencing the nine entries that made it to the finals. The works of the participants were judged through a set of criteria which included aesthetic appeal, relevance to the theme, originality, and audience impact, which was why the brethren were then given a chance to vote for the best logo.
The first, second, and third placers were Jerome San Miguel, Daxine Fiesta, and Alvin Talavera, respectively.
“As one of the judges, I found it difficult because all the entries are beautiful,” said Renz Julius Enriquez. “I feel so inspired and happy seeing the active participation of the brethren.”
On behalf of the congregation, Brother Arturo said, “We thank our Almighty God Who allowed us to conduct this activity … We also thank the Executive Minister, Brother Eduardo V. Manalo, who has always been supportive of activities like this. With this activity aiming to strengthen each of us in the faith and to remind us of our upcoming special celebration, truly, we will not be hindered from celebrating this milestone anniversary, all for God’s glory.” — With reports from INC News Section
