The results of the Eurojust logo contest (EU body looking for a new logo) have been finalized, and we are pleased to be in a position to announce the results. During the contest Eurojust received almost 700 submissions, a great success in terms of numbers and outreach, attracting submissions from artists all over Europe. The sheer number of entries demonstrates the wonderful creativity inspired in the participants by the contest’s goal of reflecting the important work of Eurojust against serious cross-border organized crime.
Eurojust would like to whole-heartedly thank everybody who took part in the contest and to congratulate the artists of the top three submissions (designs shown below). These artists received prizes of: € 7,000 1st prize, € 2,000 2nd prize and € 1,000 3rd prize.
Each of the top ten participants received a logo contest diploma as recognition of their outstanding achievement and participation in this EU-wide competition.
