Attention Logo Designers!

A new contest is afoot to create an information literacy logo.
"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."

A $3000 prize goes to the designer of winning design. I know we have many talented graphic designers, and other folks who are deep into information literacy. Here's you chance to show off!
