The Nordic Centre in Fudan University is turning 20 next year and to mark this important milestone, we are going to use a special anniversary logo on all of our materials in 2015.

If you are the brilliant student, who produces our anniversary logo, we will award you with an INTOUS digital drawing board from Wacom. There are no rules regarding the design of our anniversary logo, so give your creativity free rein – and start your possible career as a logo-designer.


The competition is open for all university students in Shanghai and Fudan faculty. The deadline for submitting your logo-design is: December 1st 2014 before 12.00 noon.

After the deadline, the Nordic Centre Anniversary Committee will choose the logo for the anniversary, and the winner will be contacted directly shortly after and also announced on the Nordic Centre

Please send your logo design, a description of the symbolism in the logo if you find it relevant, your name, your university and major/affiliation, as well as your contact information (e-mail and mobile number)


The Nordic Centre is a network of 26 Nordic Universities and one research institution that all have close collaboration with Fudan University. Our member universities come from the five Nordic countries: Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.

Our current logo (which we will continue to use alongside the anniversary logo) was designed at a time, when only four Nordic countries were part of the Nordic Centre network, and therefore there are four long branches in our current logo. The shape resembles a snow flake and the colours are meant to reflect the cold climate in the Nordic countries. The big circle in the centre of the logo is meant to symbolize China, which is at the centre of our collaboration.


 Rules: Your logo must be an original idea and it must be your own design. If we choose your logo as the winner of the competition, the Nordic Centre has the user-right of the logo. If your logo is not chosen as the winner, the Nordic Centre has no user-rights of your logo. The panel of judges will consist of Chinese and Nordic scholars and administrative staff with long-time involvement in the Nordic Centre. The winning prize cannot be exchanged to cash.
