TACLOBAN CITY –
Local artist Eduardo “Ed” Rompal won the logo making contest for the
media group “Harmonized Initiatives of Media for the Spread of Good
Nutrition in Region 8” (HIMSoG-8) and bagged the cash prize of P5,000.
In all, there were
eight entries and Ed, as he is familiarly called by many, was the last
to submit his entry. However judges of the logo contest composed of
three university professors, one agency director, and one TV media
personality picked his entry as best during the judging held March 11,
2011 at Hotel Alejandro, this city.
Himsog is a vernacular
word for “healthy body” and thereby in the winning logo: The steam
over the bowl – which is a stylized letter M represents the group of
media practitioners, floating hot as to their fervent desire to fight
hunger and malnutrition, moving on upward motion to extend overall
communication support to the government for the success of
Accelerated-Hunger Mitigation Program (AHMP) and Promotion of Good
Nutrition (PGN) through media power.
The Rice Bowl, a
receptacle for food, symbolizes Region 8, the media group’s home base,
and its leaning inward is the motivation to bring positive behavioral
changes in people in order to transform depressed places into hunger
and malnutrition free communities. The Triangular Form connotes growth
and development, and its three corners signifying the HIMSoG
collective intent to reach out to all points of Region 8.
Judges of the contest
were professors Stephen Q. Lagarde (UP), Heidrun Milan (EVSU),
Faustito A. Aure (EVSU), PIA Regional Director Olive P. Tiu, and TV
personality Ronnie Roa.
