We’re looking for something that reflects our community and has a simple, modern but relevant theme, which also incorporates the view of the harbour.
Guidelines:
○ This is an amateur competition
○ We are looking for an original design
○ Must include the word “Solva” in both English and Welsh
○ Must include a view of Solva harbour
○ Your submissions should be on an A4 size paper and should be big enough to allow the judges to clearly see what
is represented (with explanatory notations if you like) and capable of still being clear when reduced in size to
approx. 3.5 x 2.5 cm.
○ You can submit as many designs as you wish and entries are encouraged from all ages
