IL Logo Contest

Last February 5, 2008, UNESCO and IFLA launched the Information Literacy Logo Contest via a Press Release that follows:

UNESCO and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) invite everyone to propose an international Logo to identify the work on information literacy. The aim of creating this Logo is to make communication easier among those who carry out information literacy projects, their communities and societies in general.

The Logo will be available free of charge and promoted as an international symbol of information literacy. As adopted in the Alexandria Proclamation of 2005, at the High Level Colloquium on Information Literacy and Lifelong Learning, information literacy is defined as a mean to empower “people in all walks of life to seek, evaluate, use and create information effectively to achieve their personal, social, occupational and educational goals”. Information literacy is a “basic human right in a digital world and promotes social inclusion in all nations.” UNESCO and IFLA invite all institutions and organizations from different countries to participate in the Logo Contest design.

Guidelines for submission of nominations are available at: http://www.infolitglobal.info/. If you represent an association or an organization and wish to endorse, support or promote this initiative in your country, please, send an email to the project coordinator:

    On behalf of UNESCO, IFLA (International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions) and its Information Literacy Section (InfoLit), we invite everyone to propose an international Logo to identify information literacy work. The aim of creating this Logo is to make communication easier between those who carry out information literacy projects, their communities, and society in general. The Logo will be available free of charge and promoted as an international symbol of information literacy. The term “information literacy” is defined as:

    To be information literate, a person must be able to recognize when information is needed and have the ability to locate, evaluate, and use effectively the needed information. The information literate individuals are those who have learned how to learn” (ALA, 1998)

    IFLA and UNESCO invite all institutions and organizations from different countries to participate in the Logo contest design. If you represent an association or an organization and would like to endorse, support or promote this initiative in your country, please, send an email to the project coordinator.
