We the OMPH Commission for the 150th Jubilee of Our Mother of Perpetul Help Icon gladly announce the winner of the logo competition. Biju Madathikunnel, CSsR from the Liguori Province, India, has won the competition!
We, the Commission along with the General Council want to thank all who took part in the competition. The participants include confreres from all the five Conferences. It also includes those from the larger Redemptorist family of sisters, lay associates and lay devotees of our Mother of Perpetual Help. For us, it manifested tremendous creativity. There was a variety of expressions and designs, all of which springs from a great love for our Mother of Perpetual Help. May this love and dedication continue to blossom.
A strict process was followed for the judgement of these several entries. They were cataloged without the name and provenance, to provide utmost anonymity and hence objectivity in judging the entries. We submitted all these entries first of all to a panel of experts. They gave their evaluation and assessment for the first round. Then it was circulated among the members of the General Council and this was reduced to the last five. It took a lot of discernment to adjudge the winning entry as the Official Logo of the forthcoming Jubilee. Finally here it is!
We congratulate Biju Madathikunnel for the winning entry. We now present it as the Official Logo for the Celebration of our Jubilee Year. May we truly experience our Mother of Perpetual Help, as an Icon of Love!
