KDIPA has launched its logo competition to the general public end of last year. It had placed an advertisement in the local press as well as on its website detailing the required specifications and intellectual property rights, and allowed for a 3-week duration for making all the submissions through a dedicated e-mail. The Panel of Judges was formulated by three independent professional personalities from academia, communications, and arts fields. They collectively reviewed the 385 designs received and assessed them based on a set of artistic and objective criteria. The Panel selected a short list of 5 designs, which were presented to KDIPA’s Board of Directors in their last meeting, whereby the Board chose the winning logo design and KDIPA duly proceeded to undertake the necessary measures.
