The Panvel City Municipal Corporation (PcMC) has announced a competition to design its logo. The competition is open to all Indians residing in any part of the country. The last date for submitting entries is July 1.

The creator of the winning logo will get Rs25,000. The PCMC was formed on October 1, 2016, and its first ever civic elections were held in May. PCMC’s 78 corporators were elected after the elections in May. The areas under the municipal corporation have a population of 5 lakh.

Municipal commissioner Sudhakar Shinde said, “Just as the logos of 15 municipal corporations in the state are aesthetically designed and convey a strong message, we want the PCMC logo to stand out and represent the city and its people.”

He added that Panvel has a rich history and culture and is attuned with the modern time, and this should be reflected in its logo.

As per norms stipulated by the PCMC, a participant must be above 18 years of age. Also, a group of artists can create the logo. Those interested should register their details and send designs on panvelcorporation.com. A consolation prize of Rs5,000 each will be given to five runners-up.
