DUBAI, July 28, 2019

The UAE’s Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre (MBRSC) has revealed the winning logo from the design competition held for the International Astronautical Congress (IAC) 2020.

IAC, which will be hosted in Dubai for the first time in the Arab world, is a global event that brings together leading space specialists and decision-makers from around the world.

The 71st IAC will be held from October 12 to 16, 2020 under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

More than 500 designers from Egypt, Jordan, USA, Australia, India, Indonesia, Italy, Greece, France, Sweden, China, Mexico and Hungary, as well as from other countries, participated in the design competition. Fifteen designs were shortlisted, out of which the winning logo was selected, designed by Hanan Seif, from the United Arab Emirates.

The logo’s design, selected by a specialised committee for the 71st IAC, consists of a light blue figure of Burj Khalifa, the letters IAC, and DUBAI 2020 placed at the bottom. The winner will receive a cash prize and an invitation to attend the IAC 2020.

Yousuf Hamad AlShaibani, director general of MBRSC, said: “We launched a unique logo design competition for the IAC to engage various disciplines mainly arts and creativity,  in the largest global space event that brings together space industry experts.”
