Culturama 40 slogan contest launched; Nevis residents urged to participate

NIA Charlestown Nevis — Residents of Nevis have an opportunity to win complimentary passes to all 2014 Culturama events, with the launch of the Nevis Culturama Festival Secretariat’s Culturama 40 slogan competition.

According to Abonati Liburd, Executive Director of the Nevis Culturama Festival Secretariat, the committee is currently inviting entries from residents of Nevis. All entries should be submitted to the festival’s secretariat at the Cotton Ginnery Mall by Friday, January 31st or persons can email their entries to nevisfestivalsecretariat@gmail.com

“We are looking for a slogan that is going to be short, catchy, would reflect the true spirit of Culturama and we are looking for a slogan that would have the caption: ‘Culturama 40.’

“The winning entry for this year’s slogan competition would get two complimentary passes to all Culturama 40 events and also a plaque. That slogan would be used to vigorously market our 40th anniversary of Culturama and also the grand homecoming celebration that we are planning for Culturama 40,” Liburd said.

Liburd was at the time speaking at a luncheon organised by the 2014 Culturama Committee, to jumpstart plans for this year’s festival.

Meantime, Nevis’ Culture Minister Hon. Mark Brantley, while making his remarks, pointed out that the early start was an indication that the committee was serious about getting plans for Culturama 40 underway.

“As the public would know, Culturama is a grand celebration this year. We also have, of course, our first homecoming where we are encouraging Nevisians abroad to come home and spend some time with us and so this goes out to all the Nevisians at home, please invite your friends and family. Tell them come home for Culturama 40. It’s going to be packed with activity,” Brantley said.

“We have a dedicated group of Nevisians looking forward to planning a spectacular event for you. So this is what it’s about, very early January and we’re already here putting our heads together and trying to get ready for Culturama 40 and we look forward to seeing all of you in Nevis for this spectacular celebration.”
