Brand use and acknowledgement requirements

Communities across Queensland will be celebrating the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) between now and April 2018, whether that be through the sport, the opportunity to shine a light on important social issues or through arts and culture.

If you are hosting an event or activation in your local community that has the potential to positively contribute to the ongoing legacy from GC2018 – through sporting, community and/or cultural channels – we would love to hear from you.

Contact us at embracing2018@ditid.qld.gov.au with your event or program.

You can use the Embracing 2018 logo (see below) on any collateral produced for the event such as publications, signage and stationery. The Embracing 2018 brand is for use on programs that have a legacy benefit for the people of the Gold Coast, Queensland and Australia.

We may also feature your event on our this website's events calendar and promote any good news from your event on our social media channels:
