The Indochina Bulldogs are seeking a new logo and jumper. Can you help??

Ross McRae of the Vietnam Swans has details of the competition which you can win – if you’re good enough.

Comp ends 1st December, 2014
Open to everyone.The Indochina Bulldogs are looking for their colours.

Story

Over the past few months, there has been a movement for getting an Indochina All Stars team together for the AFL’s International Cup in 2017. Last August, the Indochina Cup was played between the Thailand Tigers, Vietnam Swans, Cambodian Eagles, Laos Elephants and… the Myanmar Fighting Cocks. This is an annual tournament.

During this event, an All-stars team of nationals and players with parents who had Indochina heritage, played against an Australian all star team. The Indochina All Stars were born as they took charge and beat the Australian All Stars soundly.Special mentions to ex-West Coast Eagle, Andrew Embley who was coach for the Indochina Team (his father was born in Myanmar), as well as Laos with their national sprint champion playing for the Elephants.

At last month’s Asian Champs, the team name was decided: The Indochina Bulldogs – perhaps because the Doggies’colours are on each of the Indochina national flags and Rut Ngarmariyakul (Thai rep), the organiser of the first Indochina All Stars, is a huge Doggies fan.Next year, the Indochina Bulldogs have a good chance of travelling to Indonesia to play against the Indonesian Garudas AFL International team.

Can include descriptive paragraph to explain your design(s) as part of your entry.
You don’t have to use the flags, they are just there for reference, just remember Rule D.
Colours can be the generic shades, does not need to be reference from the flags, you don’t even have to use all of them, just remember Rule D.
It is okay to submit your entries on one image as long as you use the template/outline design.
There is no issue if you rework old designs and redirect it to the Indochina theme, just follow the above conditions, but they must be yours and not another designers.

  1. Hi Guys,

    Darren Whitfield has just sent me the link regarding a new shirt for the Bulldogs but I see the closing date is today!

    We are AFL Asia’s preferred supplier of teamwear.

    If you have good designs already then let me know when you have selected the winner and we can quote for making the jumpers etc.

    If you want us to think of a design let me know but I don’t want to “tread on toes” if you have budding designers in the region.

    Just for your information, at our Hong Kong factory we have professional staff who can take “sketch” designs and turn them into the sort of images that can be printed.

    Let me know if you need our help!

    Kind regards

    Nick Moynihan
