Competition for the Design of an Emblem of the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage

UNESCO is now announcing a competition for the design of an emblem that best reflects the purposes and spirit of the Convention to give greater visibility to intangible heritage and its safeguarding.

UNESCO invites entries from professional and amateur graphic designers, artists, and practitioners of intangible cultural heritage from all its Member States. Each participant may submit a single design, including a black and white and a colour version.

The deadline for submissions to reach UNESCO is 15 February 2008.

At its third session in Istanbul in late 2008, the Committee will select the winning design and award it with a prize of US$15,000. This will then serve as the Convention’s official emblem.
