A Logo for Human Rights

How it works

There is finally to be a symbol for human rights – show us your human rights logo!


At present there is no internationally recognized symbol for human rights. The “Logo for Human Rights” initiative wants to change that! Logos win people over through their symbolic power, distinctiveness, clarity and universal applicability. The initiative was established out of conviction that a human rights logo will make a peaceful contribution towards the global spread and implementation of human rights. In order to find this logo, a global creative online competition with cash prizes and open to everyone is to be launched. The initiative has the support of renowned stakeholders, supporters and partners from all walks of life.

The aim of the initiative is to create a human rights logo “by people for people”, thus making a contribution towards the global spread and implementation of human rights with the support of a large public.

Show the world your logo for human rights!

What do you have to do?

Show the world your logo idea, whether it’s a sketch or a complicated design. What matters is that the symbolism is convincing.
How can you take part?

Upload your logo on to Discuss and assess the logo competition entries with people from all over the world, sup­ported by a team of experts. A prominent jury will make a pre-selection from all the entries. In a global public online ballot, the winner will be chosen from among the top 10.

Why should you take part?

Your logo can become the global symbol for human rights and be used wherever the focus is on human rights. What’s more, the winner will be awarded €5000, the runner-up €3000 and the third-placed entrant €1000.


The way you produce your logo is up to you: sketch the logo with a pencil on paper, paint it on a canvas, design it with the computer, draw it with a stick in the sand, etc.
It must be possible to understand the logo without a text.
The only words that may be used with the logo are “Human Rights”.
Purely text entries will not be accepted.
It’s not possible to upload video or audio files.
