For the first time this spring, and in cooperation with the Hellenic Offshore Racing Club (HORC) at Piraeus, HELMEPA is giving its online followers the opportunity to express their hopes for our marine environment and devise the Association’s new slogan through a unique competition to be run exclusively through Facebook. Contestants – who will be the fans from Attica of HELMEPA’s Facebook page – will be invited to formulate their inspired environmentally-oriented pithy messages and submit them online for judging. The slogan will appear on the poster that is to be circulated throughout the country and HELMEPA’s membership as part of HELMEPA’s 2013 summer environmental awareness campaign. As in each year, the poster will feature HELMEPA’s Seagull, who will convey an important environmental message.
Besides being credited with the authorship of HELMEPA’s latest catchphrase, the winner of the competition will also be the lucky recipient of a special prize, kindly donated by HORC. They will be awarded a complete beginner’s sailing course at the Club, to take place over a period of 2 months and worth over €400.
The competition opens today, Thursday, 4th April and will run until Wednesday, 24th April. For those living in Attica, not already part of HELMEPA’s Facebook family and who want to take part in the contest, simply ‘like’ the Association’s page at www.facebook.com/Helmepa, click on the competition tab and complete the details as necessary.
HELMEPA wishes all contenders the very best of luck and excitedly looks forward to unveiling its latest environmental message.
