Slogan Design Challenge: for 2012-2013

It is a relatively recent trend to manage the promotion of voluntary blood donation globally. IFBDO has been striving for the international awareness in this subject since its creation in 1955. Yet, due to the fact that blood reserves are formed and consumed locally, not so long ago all the promotional campaigns had been organised and carried out on a local or national level in each country. With the introduction of World Blood Donor Day things have changed dramatically. Global awareness is our main goal.

In frames of this guideline, IFBDO wants to create a Universal Slogan of all the Blood Donors of the world, a slogan that would be permanent and would identify the voluntary blood donors. It won't change every year as the slogan of World Blood Donor Day does. It will remain the same for generations and generations, today, tomorrow and forever, till the science advances far enough to create a substitute for blood and there won't be any need in blood donations anymore. 

Therefore we challenge you to participate in IFBDO's Universal Slogan Contest for Blood Donors. 

Create your project and submit to the Contest Committee. We encourage the participation of teams from Universities, Medical institutions, Governmental entities, Blood Donor Associations, and of course all the projects of individual participants are very welcome.

Your projects must include:

1. A proposed Slogan and it's translation to as many languages as possible. Make sure that you involve native speakers to produce a correct translation.

2. ​A proposed design of a flag with that slogan, in all those languages that you submit.

3. A statement that the copyright holder of this work, irrevocably grants anyone the right to use this work under the Creative Commons Attribution ShareAlike 3.0 license (legal code)

4. Your complete contact information and the list of names of your project team.


Multiple projects from the same team or individual are allowed. 

The deadline for project submission is December 31, 2013. The Contest Committe will choose 3 best projects and 3 other projects will come out as candidates from the popular vote online. All six projects will be submitted to votation at the General Assembly of IFBDO in April 2014.

The winner will be announced on April 30th, 2014. The winning design might be subject to pertinent modifications before its public inauguration as the final and unique Universal Slogan of Blood Donors. 

It's your chance to make the difference! For all the blood donors of the past, the present and the future. Let's do it!
