Entries are invited for the Name and Logo Contest for Promoting SHG Products organised by Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs.
About the Contest
DAY-NULM is a flagship Mission under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, to reduce poverty and vulnerability of the urban poor households by enabling them to access gainful self-employment and skilled wage employment opportunities, resulting in an appreciable improvement in their livelihoods on a sustainable basis, through building strong grassroots level institutions of the poor. The Mission envisages mobilisation of urban poor households into Self-Help Groups (SHGs) and their federations, at the grass-root level. It is believed that mobilisation of urban poor households to form their own institutions is an important investment for an effective and sustainable poverty reduction.
SHGs are primarily groups of 10 to 20 women, who conduct regular meetings and collect contributions for a corpus fund, which is used for short-term inter-lending among members. Many of these SHGs are engaged in the production of goods such as handicrafts, textiles, masks, toys, food products such as idli dough, papad, pickle and so on. The products made by SHG members compete with branded/ market-established products in terms of quality, packages and brand promotion. It is felt that the absence of a common ‘Logo and Brand Name’ these products, is becoming a major impediment in marketing and advertising and reaching to all the consumers in a cost-effective manner.
In the above background, Mission envisages promoting the goods made by SHGs through a common Brand Name and Logo. It is expected that this would help the SHG products amply their visibility and reach to a wider customer base using the e-Commerce portals like Amazon & Flipkart.
Mission, therefore, intends to invite citizens to suggest a ‘Brand Name with Logo’ for the SHG products, which represents the spirit of women empowerment in addition to the activities as described above. The following points should be kept in mind while making suggestions:
- The name should be acceptable across various geographies and should not harm any regional sensitivities.
- The suggested names should preferably be in Hindi or Sanskrit. It can be a stand-alone single-syllable name or an acronym, which can be expanded to a larger name.
Prize: Rs. 51,000 to the winning entry.
- An entry could be by an Indian citizen.
- Each participant/ team can submit only ONE entry. The submission of entry is FREE.
