Logo Design Competition

With the expansion of the network to cover Australasia, we need a new logo and so are reaching out to our members for a new design.

If you would like to design a logo please email your design idea, with a sentence or two explaining it, to WOMEESA.network@gmail.com by 30th April 2018.

The top 3 logos (as selected by majority vote by the committee) will then be up for public vote on twitter/facebook to find the winner.
