On the evening of 23 Sep 2011, alongside the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the “Logo for Human Rights” initiative unveiled the winner of an international online competition.
Some hours before that the organizer of the competition gave insight information to 100 visitors of Creative Morning Berlin: Jovoto CEO Bastian Unterberg and community manager Nadine Freischlad.
In May, the initiative issued an international call for logo submissions and invited people to judge them online. The response was impressive: from over 15,000 entries, a prominent jury together with the internet community selected the winning symbol. The new human rights glyph is now available to everyone at no cost as an open source product at www.humanrightslogo.net. The winning design is by 32 years old Predrag Štakić of Serbia.
