This is the logo for the St. Cecilia International Vocal and Instrumental Music Competition. The background is white, and the writing is black. The writing at the top of the logo, written in a rainbow-like arc, reads, 'St. Cecilia IVIMC'. The writing at the bottom of the logo, written in a straight line, reads, 'Amor in lyra et in cantu vivit'. The central image depicts a black silhouette of a female profile, with long flowing hair. The flowing hair includes five long, wavy strands (plus one, much shorter strand at the bottom), resembling music staves, dancing in the wind. In her hair are blue, green, pink and black quavers and semi-quaveres, also dancing, getting smaller as they grow further away from the  face.

This is a piano vocal score. It is a thick score, lying open on a flat surface. The background of the image is black, and most of the photo has had a blur affect applied to it, with only a few notes properly made visible. This gives a somewhat mysterious and creative feel. The pages are a crisp, fresh white, and the score looks new – as if the first time it has been opened is for this photo. The notes are a deep, rich black, as if fresh off the printer.
