MWIA Centennial Scarf Design Competition

The Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) Centennial Congress will take place from July 25-29, 2019, in New York City, USA.  It promises to be an exciting time for MWIA members to commemorate this wonderful occasion of one hundred years of our existence.

The MWIA centennial scarf will be worn by our members as a symbol of our unity and as a means of identifying with the Association.

As part of the preparations for the centennial, we are inviting members of national associations or individual members to participate in a competition for the design of the scarf. Each member will be eligible to send in ONE design by July 1, 2018. The design is to be sent as a high resolution jpeg in both colour and black and white electronically to the chair of the Public Relations (PR) Subcommittee, Dr. Eleanor Nwadinobi, at  The 16 member PR subcommittee, as well as members of the MWIA Executive, will participate in voting for the winning design, and the results will be communicated by August 31, 2018.

To be eligible for participation in the scarf competition, individual members or the member’s national association must be in good standing and up-to-date with their dues for at least one triennium, including  the current 2017-2018 year.

The prize for the best design will be the honour of designing a beautiful scarf as an emblem of our centennial, as well as a free ticket to the gala dinner at our centennial celebrations in New York City in 2019.

The specifications of the scarf are 100% silk or micro fibre, 110cm x 110cm in size. It should have on it somewhere the MWIA logo (see below) and the years 1919-2019. It should be in the MWIA colour, which is a purplish blue, as indicated in the logo.

For further enquiries please contact the Chair of the PR Subcommittee, Dr. Eleanor Nwadinobi,  at We very much look forward to receiving your entries!

With very warm regards,
The MWIA Executive and Dr. Eleanor Nwadinobi, Chair of the Centennial Public Relations Committee
