Logo Design Contest

In December 1961 the United States officially recognized the newly independent country of Tanzania (then known as Tanganyika). From July 2021 to December 2021, the U.S. Embassy will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the start of U.S.-Tanzania diplomatic relations. To celebrate six decades of “Pamoja” (togetherness) and to kick off the next decades of working together, the U.S. Embassy will be using a special logo throughout the year– and we would like YOU to design it.

The theme of the celebration is “Pamoja” and this phrase should appear in the logo.

If you are a Tanzanian living in Tanzania and have creative ideas, we encourage you to submit your design to our contest!

The grand prize winner will receive a Canon EOS4000D Camera

The second place winner will receive a Samsung A32 Smart Phone.

The third place winner will receive a set of JBL Headphones

Please be sure to read the contest rules to ensure your entry is eligible and submit your design to Pamoja60Logo@groups.state.gov . We look forward to receiving your entry!

Overview

The new logo may be used on the Embassy website, social media sites, business cards, letterhead, posters, souvenir trinkets and gifts, or anywhere else the Embassy chooses. The logo must be appropriate for a professional business setting.
