The National Film Authority (N.F.A), a body set up under the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture with the responsibility of overseeing the affairs of the Film industry in Ghana and liaising with the appropriate government institutions for the facilitation of projects and other matters of the Film community, has announced that it has finally got a logo. The logo was chosen out of a list of designs from creative agencies in Ghana. A communique via email to stakeholders of the Film industry stated that the logo will be made public in a follow-up publication.
An official email sent from the National Film Authority (N.F.A) on 23rd April 2020 announced that the N.F.A has indeed decided on a particular logo to be used to officially represent the body. Earlier, submissions were opened from January 26th 2020 to 20th February 2020 to Graphic Design and Creative agencies to express their interest to design a logo and related institutional branding creatives. “We are happy to announce that the National Film Authority has chosen one out of several logos received. It was indeed a tough call as we were really impressed by the display of amazing talents through the works submitted. We would like to congratulate the agency whose logo was chosen. This logo will be revealed in our next communication”, the statement read.
Also, all interested applicants were initially obligated to meet all statutory business registration and tax compliance requirements. Proposals from creative agencies who failed to do so were not accepted.
The National Film Authority (N.F.A) was established recently by the Government of Ghana as a constitutional requirement in order to give the film fraternity a voice. The N.F.A has yet began operating in its full capacity. But, the confirmation of an official logo signals the readiness of the body to commence duties.
