Individuals seeking to give their artistic prowess some international mileage by way of creating official logo and mascot for the 2023 African Games have been given a sigh of relief following an extension of the deadline date by the Ministry of Youth and Sports.

The Ghana 2023 Project Team of the Ministry of Youth & Sports earlier fixed Wednesday July 29, 2020 as deadline date for all entries but has extended to Wednesday August 26, 2020, to offer contestants the ample time fight for the ultimate prize.

Winners of either logo or mascot design competition shall be rewarded with a cash prize of GHC5,000.00 ($862) whiles GHC3,000.00 ($520) and GHC2,000.00 ($347) shall be given to the second and third place finishers in that order. Meanwhile, there will be ten (10) consolation certificates and plaques for either logo or mascot design and all entries of the two designs shall be honored with certificate of participation during the official launch of the Games event in a yet to be announced date.

In October 2018, Ghana shrugged off competition from West Africa neighbors Burkina Faso and Nigeria to win her maiden hosting right of the quadrennial sports festival.

With the event also serving as the qualifiers for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, host country Ghana will be hoping to capitalise on her home invincibility to qualify more athletes for the Olympics when they make their 12th appearance in competition with record of being the ninth highest medal holder.
