• Logo contest for Team EDN
Dec 06, 2018

Last November, the Eastern Door and the North (EDN) hockey team called on the artistic talents of the First Nations and Inuit to create a new, original and colourful logo that they will proudly wear at the upcoming National Aboriginal Hockey Championships (NAHC) in 2019.

For all artists, illustrators, painters and graphic designers, both professional and amateur, this was an exceptional opportunity to showcase their talents to the benefit of sports and youth as the winning logo will become the official emblem of EDN hockey team. This logo therefore had to portray the culture, identity and athletic excellence of the First Nations and Inuit in Quebec.

The contest was a clear success as several communities participated: Pessamit, Timiskaming First Nation, Long Point First Nation, Mashteuiatsh, Lac-Simon and Kahnawake. The committee, made up of six people from the communications and sports circles, will meet shortly to determine the lucky winner to be announced in early January.
