The ECSS is happy to announce that they received enough designs for the ECSS Mascot Design Contest. Thank you to those that participated in this exciting contest. As you may recall, this contest was to give one of our members the opportunity to design the ECSS congress mascot.
This is the first time the ECSS is giving the congress a mascot and has been done to also commemorate the ECSS 25th anniversary. Naturally, there are prizes for the winning design – one year’s free ECSS membership and a bundle of events to attend in Sevilla – from a dinner for 2, to flamenco shows and a river cruise, compliments of the Sevilla Congress and Convention Bureau.
You may recall that the mascot has to be an animal living or mythical, that had importance to the local community. With this in mind and other criteria, we are happy to announce that the panel has unanimously chosen a winner of the first ECSS congress mascot contest.
The ECSS Sevilla 2020 Mascot Design Panel consisted of the following members:
- Prof. Africa Lluch Calvo, ECSS 2020 Congress President.
- Mr Manual Moreno, Director, Sevilla Congress & Convention Bureau.
- Mr Miguel Aymerich, Deputy Director of Biodiversity and the Natural Environment. Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge.
- Prof. Erich Mueller, President of the ECSS.
- Prof. Joan. L. Duda, Past President of the ECSS.
We have already contacted the winner and all we can say is that the winner is currently working on final touches and that we all will be very excited to reveal the mascot soon.
Stay tuned to find out more about the first ECSS congress mascot and all the fun this lucky animal will bring.
