UNFCCC YOUNGO Logo Design Contest

Are you a designer? Do you know any designers? YOUNGO thinks it’s time for a new logo, so we’re running a competition. Enter by 6 March 2015, and your logo just might end up representing youth climate activists worldwide!

YOUNGO logo contest

YOUNGO needs a new logo! The YOUNGO Communications Working Group is renewing our YouthClimate.org website, so we thought it was an excellent time to come up with a (new) logo for YOUNGO. We decided to invite suggestions from the whole constituency, because we know there are a lot of really skilled people out there. We’d love to see what you come up with!

So, we are organising a competition. Do you think you can design a great logo for YOUNGO? We will consult the whole constituency, and together pick a winning entry, which will be used as a recognisable visual on the new YOUNGO website and YOUNGO’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

We’re looking for a logo, not a banner. We want something that we can use as a profile image on Facebook or Twitter, as a logo on our website, and as a letterhead when YOUNGO writes to people seeking sponsorship.

For this we call on your creative inspiration! Do you want to design a logo for the international youth climate movement? Here’s your chance!
