A new logo has been launched for the Prime Minister’s Best Village Trophy Competition.
Culture Minister Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly believes the new logo embodies the new identity and spirit of the competition and says it is an exciting change and a strategic move for the competition.
She says since 1963, the Prime Minister’s Best Village Trophy Competition has been a main incubator for this country’s finest creative talents and has built a strong reputation for promoting our nation’s culture.
Over the last two years, Dr Gadsby-Dolly says the Ministry has been reshaping the programme to enable the competition to unleash its fullest potential going into the future.
In 2017, the Best Village competition introduced its Folk Theatre Season giving the top performers an opportunity to perform on stage once again to national audiences.
Meanwhile in 2018, the introduction of the Folk Arts Festival incorporated not only the top performers in the Folk Theatre competition but also the Folk Presentations, setting the stage for a Best of Best Village Show.
These changes were further enhanced by an increase in the prize money for the various categories.
The new logo came out of a national competition and was ultimately selected by the Best Village Community.
Minister Gadsby-Dolly believes it is the perfect time to launch it, as T&T gets ready to host CARIFESTA, saying the Best Village Community will play an integral role in showcasing the nascent talent and culture of T&T.
