– Swazi Ob­server’s Sub-ed­i­tor Phi­wok­wakhe Gamedze won the na­tional de­sign a logo for the Con­fed­er­a­tion of South­ern African Na­tional Olympic Com­mit­tee (COSANOC).

For his achieve­ment, Gamedze walked away with E1 300. His de­sign will now com­pete with oth­ers from the re­gion.

In­ter­viewed after the win, Gamedze said he was very happy to have won the com­pe­ti­tion.

“It feels good to win as six of us were short­listed.


This was not the first com­pe­ti­tion I en­tered for so it made win­ning more spe­cial,” he said. Gamedze said his in­spi­ra­tion for the logo was the dif­fer­ent cul­tural pat­terns and colours found through the south­ern African re­gion.

“Next up is the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion where my de­sign will be up against lo­gos from nine other re­gional coun­tries.

I hope that my de­sign fares well there like it did here at home,” said Gamedze.
