Ladyfest Logo Winner!

The results are in and the winner of the LADYFEST TEN logo competition is Katja Baumann.

It was a close race as we had some brillant designs submitted.

We were overwhelmed by all of the entries we had so once again thanks so much for all of your submissions.

Katja’s design is simple yet effective and perfectly represents Ladyfest Ten.
