 The NWRT has launch a competition to design its logo. The competition - dubbed Nunavut Designs—is ONLY open to current students of Nunavut high schools and the Arctic college (all campuses).

The Nunavut Wildlife Management Board established the Nunavut Wildlife Research Trust (NWRT) in 1994 to fund wildlife research conducted by territorial and federal government departments—as directed by the Nunavut Agreement. Since 1994, the fund has supported researchers from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canadian Wildlife Service (Environment and Climate Change Canada), Parks Canada, and the Government of Nunavut Departments of Environment, and Fisheries and Sealing. A wide variety of Nunavut species and ecosystems have benefited from the fund including: polar bears, caribou, ring seals, muskox, geese, walruses, wolfs, narwhal and beluga.

The winner will receive a cash prize of $1500 and the winning design may be developed into the NWRT’s official logo. The second and third place logos will also receive a cash price of $1000 and $500 respectively.

All the entries will be displayed on the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board Facebook page ( for a period of two weeks with everyone invited to vote for their preferred designs.

The top three entries, as voted for, will be invited to present their designs and supporting research in-person to the Trustees of the NWRT—in Iqaluit, at the beginning of December 2018. The Trustees will decide on the winning design. The winning design may be sent to a graphics professional for further refinement if necessary. The NWRT will have exclusive ownership for all the designs entered in the completion and may choose to use non-winning logos to promote the fund and other activities of the Nunavut Wildlife Management Board.
