CARIFESTA LOGO CONTEST DEADLINE EXTENDED
Friday 29th November 2019

Friday 29th November, 2019 (St. John’s, Antigua) The Antigua and Barbuda Festivals Commission (ABFC) under the auspices of the Ministry of Sports, Culture, National Festivals and the Arts wishes to advise that the “CARIFESTA 2021 Logo Competition” has been extended.

Making the announcement, the Minister responsible for Culture and National Festivals, Honourable Daryll Matthew explains that as a sign of respect during this time of mourning due to the unexpected death of CARIFESTA Director and cultural icon, Vaughn Walter MBE, the decision to extend the deadline was most appropriate.

He adds, “Vaughn Walter was culture and culture was Vaughn Walter. He lived a life dedicated to the advancement of Antigua and Barbuda’s culture and we are poorer because of his passing. His passion for culture and the arts, and Antigua and Barbuda, is demonstrated by his many years of service to our nation, often times going beyond the call of duty. He will be deeply missed. To his wife Althea, children and immediate family, kindly accept my profound sympathies. May his soul rest in peace”.

The new deadline for the CARIFEST LOGO DESIGN COMPETITION is set for Friday 13th December 2019. View the guidelines here.
