“Peace is…” Logo Contest 2017


February 16th, 2017

sputnik area UN
(United Nations Visitor Entrance, 
where “Peace is...” events will take place)

 























The Permanent Mission of Japan to the United Nations, in collaboration with the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) and other Missions are celebrating the annual UN agenda theme with a series of events entitled, “Peace is…”

The purpose of these events is for Japan and other member states to show their support to the three pillars of the UN agenda (Peace and Security, Development, and Human Rights) in the form of interactive cultural events.

This year’s theme is “peace,” which can be expressed in diverse ways. Peace is family, water, and education, just to name a few examples. The Japan Mission, along with the DPI and other Member States, will decide on a topic to be highlighted each month.
 

With this in mind, we are inviting submissions from the public for a design contest, creating a logo for the “Peace is…” event to be used in promotional material including, but not limited to, banners, brochures and posters. We look forward to receiving your designs representing the universal theme of Peace. The details of this contest are as follows:ay, March 10th
