A Grampians LGBTIQ advocacy group is calling out for artists and designers to help design a standout logo for their organisation.
Grampians Regional LGBTIQ Network is behind a logo design competition and is asking artists to submit their best designs.
Grampians Pyrenees Primary Care Partnership and network convener Jo Richie said the group needed a colourful design that would help it become more identifiable.
“The network has been going since 2017 – a while without a logo,” she said.

“We need a logo that will help people identify and bring attention to who we are. We want something that makes us more recognisable when we promote activities or put on events.
“We need something positive and inclusive, most importantly, something that includes the rainbow theme as the accepted colours of the LGBTIQ community.
“It would be good to represent our local topography of the Grampians as well.
“Anyone who is interested in art, drawing and design, we’d love to hear from. We’re looking for an electronic version to be able to upload it to a website.”
Ms Richie said she hoped a logo would help the network to continue to grow.
“We have more than 40 people in our network, that includes service providers, allies for the LGBTIQ community, and there’s also community members involved in the group,” she said.
“There’s an increasing awareness that the LGBTIQ community is a minority community and they have needs and requirements about feeling safe around the services they use.”
The competition closes on July 31. Network leaders will select the best four entries, which will be put to a public vote from August 10 to August 14. The winner will have the design with the most votes and will receive a $350 Woolworths gift card. People seeking more information can email Ms Richie at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 5352 6225.
