The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MEA) has submitted applications for logo designs for India’s upcoming G20 presidency. India will hold the G20 presidency for the first time. It will take place from December 1 to November 30 in 2023, culminating in the G20 summit. It is a forum for international economic cooperation. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has asked the youth to participate in the competition.
“I am delighted to announce the launch of a Logo Design Contest for India’s upcoming G20 Presidency. Share with us your idea of what a uniquely Indian G20 represents. We are open to submissions until June 7, 2022,” Modi tweeted.
The last date to submit the logo is June 7 this year. The winner of the competition will be awarded Rs 150,000. The next top five entries will receive Rs 15,000 each and then the next five shortlisted entries will receive Rs 10,000 each. The prize money will be made payable after deduction of TDS.
There are a few criteria to design the logo. It should reflect a unique “Indian” G20 nationally and internationally. In this context, the logo should represent one or more of India’s thematic priorities of the G20, such as sustainable development for all, people-centred approach, equitable and resilient growth, environmental lifestyle, the world as one family and multilateral partnerships.
The logo should feature Amritkaal – India’s next 25 year journey from 75 to 100 which is both futuristic and inclusive and should include artistic expressions of color combinations/arrangements in the national tricolor and the ‘G20’ should also be prominently reflected in the logo. It is preferable if the texts in the logo are in English.
“During his presidency, India will set the agenda for the year and will have the opportunity to shape discussions and outcomes on a range of global issues ranging from climate and environment, trade and investment, health, agriculture, digital economy, energy, anti- corruption, employment, education, tourism and culture,” the official statement reads.
