AmCham Taiwan Logo Design Competition

Summary Background

The American Chamber of Commerce in Taipei changed its name to the American Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan in January 2021. This change coincided with its 70th anniversary celebration and Amcham has revised its existing logo (as set out above) to honor this milestone for 2021 only. The original logo dates back to the 1990s and it is time for a new look.

The Board of Governors and Amcham staff would like to invite members, whether amateur or professional, to help design a new logo for Amcham Taiwan to reflect its new identity and to be used effective January 2022. The competition and prize details for the winning design are set out below. We look forward to your proposals!
