• Tokyo 2020 gets new logo proposals after plagiarism scandal

    0

    TOKYO, Japan: Tokyo 2020 Olympics organizers said Tuesday they have received more than 14,500 suggestions for a new logo after the original choice was withdrawn because of a plagiarism scandal. The organizing committee in August dropped the emblem put forward by Japanese designer Kenjiro Sano following allegations it too closely resembled that of a theatre in the Belgian city of Liege created by designer Olivier Debie. Organizers said they had improved the transparency of the selection process by allowing anyone to make a submission rather than the small group of professional designers before.
