ICC unveils logo for Kuujjuaq conference
Sheila Watt-Cloutier, president of the Canadian Inuit Circumpolar Conference, unveiled the logo for ICC’s ninth General Assembly this week.
The logo’s design reflects the theme for the meeting Inuit Voice — Enlightening the World. It will be held from Aug. 11 to 16 in Kuujjuaq.
According to ICC, the qulliq in the logo signifies the importance of Inuit culture and tradition, even in the modern world. It is also intended to symbolize the past lighting the way for future generations.
The person holding the globe embodies Inuit from ICC’s four member nations, united as one and lifting their voices to promote a safe and secure Arctic.
Watt-Cloutier presented the first prize of $1,000 to Nunavik artist Ulaayu Arngak, on behalf of ICC president Aqqaluk Lynge, who sponsored the logo contest.
The second place award of $600 was given to Jorgen Petersen of Greenland and a third prize of $400 went to Vladimir Alimbekovich Dobriev of Chukotka.
