Are you an aspiring logo designer? Now is your chance to become extremely popular and win some cash, as the Israeli Knesset announced that it will be looking for the public’s help for a new logo, according to a report by Yedioth Ahronoth.
The Knesset management division announced that it will be holding a contest to design a new logo to replace its current Knesset logo.
The Knesset has appointed a public committee on the matter, which also had to decide who should design the logo of the Knesset.
Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein decided to allow any designer to put forward their logo.
It was also decided that candidates would have to integrate the State emblem into the design, and to emphasize the Knesset as a symbol of democracy, the people's house, and the legislative work of the members of Parliament.
A committee consisting of professionals headed by director Ronen Plot will compile a list of 10 logos, which will be presented to the public online. The public will then choose three outstanding logos. Then, the committee will choose the winning logo.
The 10 finalists will be awarded a cash prize, and the winning designer will receive an additional cash prize.
