Tokyo Olympics organisers launch design competition for 2020 Games Emblems

Tokyo Olympics organisers launch design competition for 2020 Games Emblems
October 18, 2015

The Tokyo 2020 Emblems Selection Committee has launched a design competition for new emblems for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Following controversy over the derivative nature of the Tokyo 2020 logo, Games organisers want emblems that symbolise the 2020 Games’ hosting in Tokyo and Japan, and elicit empathy with people across the world.

Organisers want the designs to have widespread appeal before, during and long after the Games are over.

A statement explained “Tokyo 2020 would like all applicants to give full rein to their imagination and creativity, and incorporate one or more of the following key concepts into their design of new Games emblems: The Power of Sport; Typifying Tokyo and/or Japan; World Peace; Exerting the utmost efforts and striving to achieve a Personal Best; Inclusivity; Innovation and Futuristic; Regeneration - ability to recover from the 2011 (earthquake) disaster.”

Individual competition entries are invited from Japanese nationals over 18-years-old and foreign nationals over 18-years-old, with the right of residence in Japan. Children and foreigners not resident in Japan can also take part via the group entries system (10 persons maximum), as long as at least one person meets the above age, nationality and residential requirements.

Applications can be submitted online from Tuesday 24th November to Monday 7th December 2015 through a website that will be launched in the coming weeks. An official announcement of the winning entry is scheduled for spring 2016.

The entry selected by the Tokyo 2020 Emblems Selection Committee will be forwarded to the Tokyo 2020 Executive Board for final approval. The winning entry will receive an official invitation to attend the opening ceremonies of both the Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
