and the winner of the tenugui competition is …

To comemmorate the  International Kendo Federation (FIK) Asian Zone Kendo Referee Seminar being held in Sydney, Australia in March 2014, we decided to issue a tenugui to attendees. The AKR and Kendo Board received eleven high quality entries for the tenugui design competition.  It certainly shows that the AKR has a pool of talented artists amongst us and we thank all the members who submitted an entry.

We whittled the eleven entries down to four, from which the Executive Committee and Kendo Board members voted to select a winner.

As with all competitions, even if the result is close, there has to be a winner.

Congratulations to Echo Li from Victoria who has won this tenugui design competition.  Her winning design will be printed as the official seminar tenugui for all attendees.  Echo will also receive a set of bokutoh daisho as her prize.

The wining entry.
