The logo should refer to the symbols/colours of the flags of Poland and Australia and must include the number 50. References to a broader context of long Polish-Australian people-to-people connections will also be welcome.  

The contest is open to Polish and/or Australian citizens. The applications should be submitted by 31 October 2021 to the email address [email protected]
