Introduction. The purpose of the National Space Society of Australia (NSSA) Space Mission Patch Contest is to encourage the creation of a mission patch that can be used by NSSA for the limited use of promoting its non-profit objective of creating a spacefaring civilization. Such use could include the NSSA website, brochures and other promotional materials such as clothing. We believe this use is for the benefit of the future of humanity and we hope and trust that this is a cause and use that artists would support.
