The submitted words and designs should depict the city's special natural scenery and profound history, showcasing the City of Springs to the world.
These works can be submitted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the attachment named “Registration Form for Jinan City Slogan Ideas”, which can be downloaded at http://xc.e23.cn/2018/0627/6754.html, before the deadline of Aug 31.
Slogans should be within eight English words and a brief explanation regarding the works should be submitted with them.
Each entrant can submit a maximum of three slogans, all of which should be concise and easy to understand, remember and publicize.
Six winners are expected to be selected for the city slogans and logos separately and rewards of up to 50,000 yuan ($7,535) will be given to each winner.
The first winners' works will be widely used in the city's cultural exchanges with other countries, as well as for attracting investment and being posted on the city's noted public buildings.
Jinan, the capital of Shandong province in Eastern China, is famous for its 72 artesian springs, and is a major administrative, economic, and transportation hub in the province.
