The logo should communicate the following concepts:
1. A collaboration of three nations: Cuba, Mexico and the U.S.
2. Marine science and conservation in the Gulf of Mexico
The logo should include both the English and Spanish versions of the name:
Iniciativa Trinacional de Conservación del Golfo de México
Trinational Initiative for the Conservation of the Gulf of Mexico
Additional information: The Initiative focuses on six key areas of collaboration: Research and conservation of coral reefs, sharks, sea turtles, marine mammals, conservation and management of fish resources, and strengthening of marine protected areas. (It is not mandatory that any or all of these elements be included in the logo design, but this information is provided for your reference.)
Finally, this effort is about friendship as well as science and conservation, so conveying this aspect of the project would be welcome. In other words, we welcome a range of submissions, from corporate to "warm and fuzzy."
