Calling Creative Minds

The Special Olympics Australia National Games presented by NAB will be held in April 2022 in Launceston and will see athletes with an intellectual disability come together to compete across 10 competition and 4 demonstration sports.

Bredette Koen, Games Director for Special Olympics Australia said the National Games is an opportunity for schools, families, friends and communities connected to intellectual disability from around Australia to be welcomed into the world of Special Olympics and share the joy of sports.

“It is in this spirit of connected communities which we are calling for submissions for the creation of our National Games logo and brand from the design community of Tasmania. The winning designer for the brand and logo will be awarded $4,500 and become an integral part of the Special Olympics movement,” Ms. Koen said.

“We’re seeking the creation of a brand which reflects the joy of sport, the enthusiasm of Special Olympics athletes, our celebration of ability whilst representing the uniqueness of Launceston and Tasmania. The local identity of Tasmania is important and a critical part of the design.

We received very creative and inspirational designs for our Junior National Games to be hosted in Launceston in 2021. Local TASTAFE student, Jesse Gordon’s designed the winning Junior National Games logo, incorporating Cataract Gorge into the design.

“The Games is expected to attract 1,000 participants from across Australia to participate in activities and sports which meet their individual skill and ability levels, while allowing them to play together in a fun and inclusive environment. We’re excited to see the creative flair of Tasmania in our Games brand,” Ms. Koen said.
