458 Marlen Kolbe Poster Antarctica Day 2021 Poster Visual MottoThe Antarctica Day Project Group decided to create a new tradition: A visual motto announced on each Antarctica Day which will be used as an Antarctic motto for the upcoming APECS year!

We define an Antarctic visual motto as an image that incorporates 2 elements - a short textual motto and a graphic depiction - to deliver a strong message about Antarctica. The idea is to include the general public by inviting everyone to submit their ideas for Antarctic mottos until the 10 December 2021.

We think that a unique and creative slogan and matching logo-like graphics of Antarctica Day can be a memorable and recognizable tool to define a topic that the APECS community can follow along the following year. Also, this motto will be used as the benchmark for the upcoming Antarctica Day. So this year,  your submission may define the motto of Antarctica Day 2022!

For further information and how to submit your visual media can be found on the Antarctica Day webpage.
