AOPMC Mascot Contest

The MDS Asian and Oceanian Section (MDS-AOS), along with the 2021 AOPMC Oversight Committee is developing a mascot to be used in conjunction with the AOPMC. This will be done through a contest, collecting submissions from members and members ultimately choosing the winner.

The intention is to give the AOPMC a character and a personality and make it easier to create a physical and emotional connection with delegates, especially as the meeting will be virtual this year. The mascot should instantly connect potential delegates to the AOPMC brand by bringing life to the mission and goals of the meeting.

The MDS-AOS encourages all members to submit an entry into this contest. All entries must be received by March 1, 2021. Please include full name and email address with submission.


  1. Submissions will only be accepted from MDS Members
  2. All mascots must contain the MDS-AOS logo. This will be added in by the MDS Graphic Designers after submission. If a member chooses to add the logo on their own, it cannot be altered in any way from what is shown below:
  3. The final winning mascot will be presented in either black and/or MDS Red.
  4. The mascot should properly represent the AOPMC mission and goals.
  5. All finalists’ mascots will be re-drawn by MDS Graphic Designers
  6. All rights to any submitted entries must be transferred to the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.
  7. All submissions should be sent to  with full name and email address by March 1, 2021.
