China Daily is China's leading English-language newspaper. Since its first issue in 1981, it has developed into a major globalized and multi-media organization.

China Daily is an important bridge connecting China to the world and giving the world a greater insight into China.

To encapsulate China Daily's national and international image, we are running a worldwide competition for a logo that represents its broad appeal.


  • Submissions should embody the "bridge" image which shows how China Daily connects China to the world.
  • A vivid image, meaningful content, visual clarity, and easy public recognition are essential.
  • Submissions should be original and in compliance with relevant provisions concerning trademarks and legal requirements. Candidates should ensure that no third party can claim rights.
  • Candidates should provide a colorized work with a color code description attached, a literary design scheme, and complete vector source files or JPG files (with clarity no less than 300 dpi and graphic size no less than 300 mm×300 mm).
