The Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) proudly announces John Jaeffer Javier as the winner of the DMW Digital Logo Making Contest. His exceptional design, which embodies the vision and commitment of the DMW to its mandate as “Tahanan ng OFW,” stood out among numerous entries.

In a ceremony held on Monday, January 22, 2024, at the DMW Main Office in Mandaluyong City, Officer-in-Charge Hans Leo J. Cacdac, alongside Undersecretary Maria Anthonette C. Velasco-Allones and Batangas 2nd District Representative Gerville “Jinky Bitrics” Luistro, presented Javier with a plaque of recognition and a cash prize of Php 100,000.

As the DMW advances its branding initiatives, I would like the winning logo design to undergo modifications to meet the requirements stipulated by the National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP).
