Executive Order 183 (2015) signed by President Benigno Aquino III created the Negros Island Region, thereby removing the province of Negros Occidental under the administrative supervision of Region VI. As such, there is a need to create a new logo for the Regional Development Council VI (RDC-VI) that will reflect the current political configuration of the region, its prominent characteristics, and its vision for Western Visayas.
Responding to this need, the RDC-VI (after about 43 years since its creation in 1973) approved the conduct of the RDC-VI logo-making contest to search anew for that one symbol that will best embody the Region and its people.
All contestants must declare that the logo presented is his/her original work, has not been submitted as an entry in any other competition, and does not infringe on any third party’s existing copyright/s. Any complaint that may arise due to similarities, likeness or comparison of the submitted design is the sole accountability of the contestant as he/she is responsible for proving its authenticity. The logo-making competition will be judged according to the following criteria: Concept/Relevance – 40%, Creativity and Impact – 30%, Practicality – 20%, and Originality – 10%.
The winning entry will be chosen by a Board of Judges who will include distinguished individuals who are known for their artistic talents, knowledge of history, culture, and emerging socio-economic development. The decision of the Board of Judges is final.
The winner will be informed through formal communication that would be sent thru fastest means by the RDC-VI Secretary. The winning entry will be awarded during the 2nd Quarter RDC-VI Meeting and will receive a plaque of appreciation and P10,000 cash prize.
All entries submitted as entry for the contest becomes the exclusive property of the RDC-VI and will be used in whatever form the Council decides and as prescribed in its Manual of Operations. RDC-VI will have exclusive rights to publish, upload on its website and other media, use on corporate materials such as letterheads and envelopes, and print on its advocacy materials the winning logo design. The Council reserves the right to further refine or make improvements and alterations on the final artwork of the winning entry.
