Vote for A Logo for Human Rights

At present there is no internationally recognized symbol for human rights. The “Logo for Human Rights” initiative wants to change that! Logos win people over through their symbolic power, distinctiveness, clarity and universal applicability. The initiative was established out of conviction that a human rights logo will make a peaceful contribution towards the global spread and implementation of human rights. In order to find this logo, a global creative online competition with cash prizes has been launched. The initiative has the support of renowned stakeholders, supporters and partners from all walks of life. The aim of the initiative is to create a human rights logo “by people for people”, thus making a contribution towards the global spread and implementation of human rights with the support of a large public. 

The closing date for this competition has now unfortunately passed, but you can still be part of this inspiring design challenge. You are invited to discuss and assess the logo competition entries with people from all over the world, supported by a team of experts. A prominent jury will make a pre-selection from all the entries. In a global public online ballot, the winner will be chosen from among the top 10. From 6th of August 2011 until 21st of August 2011 The jury chooses 10 finalists. From 27th of August 2011 until 17th of September 2011 The world votes for the final winning logo. 

Take a look at design submissions and finalists at: 
There are some inspiring jury members, including Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, information designer and typographer Erik Spiekermann and from China, artist and activist Ai Weiwei plus many more.
