TOKYO (AP) -- Organizers on Friday unveiled four designs shortlisted to become the official logo of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
The designs were selected from 14,599 entries in a contest open to the public.
The Tokyo organizing committee said the public will have a week to 10 days to give their opinions of the designs either online or by postcard. Those opinions will be considered during the final review by the Emblem Selection Committee which will cast ballots on April 25.
The logo with a majority of votes will be presented to the organizing committee’s board of directors the same day before being made public.
The first proposed logo by Japanese designer Kenjiro Sano was scrapped over allegations of plagiarism because of its similarity to the logo of a theater in Belgium.
