Get ready to submit your design for the 2016 IFMA World Championships Mascot!!
The 2016 IFMA World Championships will be held in Jonkopping Sweden, which is why we have selected one of Sweden’s endangered species the Wolverine as the official mascot!
Wolverines are Sweden’s least known and most secretive large predator, and one of its most misunderstood. With such a confusing name, many people assume it must be some kind of wolf, perhaps a smaller cousin to that icon of the wilderness, the grey wolf.
Actually, the wolverine is the largest of the mustelids (a group of animals which includes the badger and the otter), and can weigh up to 30kg. In summer the wolverine feeds mainly on birds and mammals, but in winter will eat reindeer killed either by itself or other predators. Protected in Sweden since 1969, the wolverine is still rare in Sweden, with around 450 wild individuals, and it is still one of Sweden’s most threatened species.
The task is to design a stand-alone mascot using the characterisation of the “Wolverine” to depict Muaythai visually. No IFMA logo or type should be used in the mascot design.
