Wanted: New Dagupan corporate seal

DAGUPAN City wants a new corporate seal and has launched a design contest with as much as P100,000 in prizes at stake.

Mayor Benjamin Lim approved the launching of the contest upon the recommendation of City Secretary Jorge Estrada who noted that the city’s corporate seal designed by the late Archbishop Mariano Madriaga in 1948 no longer depicts current realities and aspirations of Dagupenos.

Lim said the new seal should reflect the true historical, economic and cultural values of the city.

Estrada added that the design must embody “the indigenous character of the city as a coastal LGU with a thriving fishing and aquaculture industry, one that is well on the way to becoming a highly urbanized city with a developing industrial base”.

Every entry should also contain the city’s “shield” since Dagupan is an independent component city and does not use the provincial seal.

Contestants must be at least 15 years old and bonafide residents of the city as certified by a punong barangay.

The  “Dagupan City Corporate Seal Redesigning Contest” is sponsored by the city government, the Pangasinan Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry and More-than-Conquerors Breakfast Club.

Each contestant can submit a maximum of two entries, in hard copy on an 8 ½” x 11” 20 bond paper with a detailed explanation of the symbolisms, plus a back-up copy in CD or DVD.

Submission of entries is from January 1 – 31, 2011 to either ad hoc chairman Estrada at the Sangguniang Panlungsod office, Honorata Siapno at the Museo na Dagupan, or the office of City Administrator.

All entries will be judged by a panel on February 18, 2011 at the Museo na Dagupan.

The first prize winner will receive P50,000 and trophy; second prize, P30,000 and plaque; and third prize, P20,000 and plaque. (CIO Dagupan)
