Vietnam organizes contest to select logo for APEC 2017
The 14th APEC took place in the Vietnamese capital city of Hanoi from November 12 to 14, 2006

The 2017 APEC logo design competition, which will close on April 4, encourages the participation of all professional and amateur artists across Vietnam.

The winner of the contest, meant to choose the logo for the 2017 APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) forum will take home a prize worth VND30 million (US$1,345).

The event, jointly organized by the Agency for Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition under the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the National Committee for APEC 2017, kicked off in March and lasts until April 4.

Professional and amateur artists throughout Vietnam are encouraged to participate in the contest.

Entries must feature the phrase ‘APEC Vietnam 2017,’ reflect the highlights of Vietnamese traditions, and represent five components of next year’s forum, namely dynamism, creativity, action, unity, and movement to the future.

The winning entry, which will be honored with a VND30 million prize, will be used as the official logo of the APEC 2017 event and other APEC-related activities in Vietnam.
