Archdiocese of Rio launches contest for WYD Rio 2013 logo
Creativity in the service of evangelization. This is the proposal of the contest that will choose the logo of the World Youth Day (WYD) RIO2013, an event that will bring together young people from around the world in Rio de Janeiro in mid-July 2013. The idea of the contest is to encourage people from all over the world to show, with all his talent, the young face of the Church. Until October 31st, 2011, the work must be sent by mail to:
Setor de Comunicação do Instituto JMJ RIO (Communication Sector of the Institute WYD RIO)
Rua Benjamin Constant, No. 23, 7o. andar – Gloria
Rio de Janeiro – RJ – Brasil
ZIP CODE: 20.241-150
There will be no registration on the internet, but only by mail. The five best logos will be selected, which will be sent to the Pontifical Council for the Laity at the Vatican, which has the final choice of the winning logo. The disclosure of the result is scheduled for December 3, 2011, at a ceremony at the Shrine of Christ the Redeemer (Santuário de Cristo Redentor – Rio de Janeiro). For inspiration, participants will have the theme of WYD RIO2013: “Go and make disciples of all nations” (Mat 28:19), which should guide the work. The logo should be representative of Rio de Janeiro, an original design and unpublished; include in it the acronyms JMJ2013; reflect the Christian identity of the event and must contain a cross or clear and unambiguous reference to the symbol. The rules to the contest details can be seen on the official website of World Youth Day (www.rio2013.com). It is worth mentioning that the contest does not involve awards. The proposal is to encourage the participation of all in every step of building the World Youth Day in Rio. As a result, the rules have undergone some changes, and are already available on the site. The contest to choose the logo was launched last September 27th. The announcement was made by the Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, Dom Orani João Tempesta, during the inauguration of the Local Organising Committee (LOC / Rio).
