*** IEEE Biometrics Council – Logo Design Competition Announcement 
(Deadline extended) ***

The IEEE Biometrics Council is pleased to announce the launch of a 
competition for the design of a new logo for the IEEE/IAPR International 
Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB), the flagship biometrics 
conference organized annually by the IEEE Biometrics Council and the 
IAPR Technical Committee on Biometrics (TC4). The winning design, once 
approved, will become the official logo of IJCB and be used in future 
iterations of the conference.

*** Eligibility ***
The design competition is open to anyone, but primarily targets members 
of the biometrics community. Individual students and researchers, but 
also larger teams are warmly invited to participate and submit their 
design proposals.
Membership in the IEEE Biometrics Council is not required but is highly 
encouraged. To apply for (free) membership, please go to: IEEE 

*** Design Specifications and Background ***
The IEEE/IAPR International Joint Conference on Biometrics (IJCB) 
combines two major biometrics conferences, the IEEE Biometrics Theory, 
Applications, and Systems (BTAS) conference and the International 
Conference on Biometrics (ICB). The conference series has not had an 
official logo so far and this design competition is meant to fill this 
void. The logo may/should reflect biometrics in some sense, but 
alternative proposals will also be given full consideration.

A submission to the competition should adhere to the following 
• Each submission should include:
   o A color logo suitable for white backgrounds,
   o A white-only version suitable for black backgrounds,
   o Separate versions (as listed above) without text/taglines if 
   o A color favicon version in different resolutions (32x32, 128x128 
and 512x512).
• The logos are expected to be clear and readable (if text is included) 
even when reprinted on a poster/banner or used on a website at a small 
• The submitted logos should be submitted in (1) a vector format (PDF, 
EPS, SVG and similar) for seamless and high-fidelity scaling purposes, 
and (2) as standard color images with transparent background, preferably 
in PNG format with at least 300 dpi. .
• Up to 3 variations on the logo are allowed (optional).

*** Submission and Deadlines ***
Design proposals for the competition should be sent to the IEEE 
Biometrics Council VPs Adam Czajka (aczajka at nd.edu) and Vitomir Štruc 
(vitomir.struc at fe.uni-lj.si) with the subject line:
[IJCB Logo Design Competition]: Entry from Your Name

Submissions should include:
• A short, signed cover letter with basic information on the designer, 
including the name, affiliation, contact information and a statement to 
certify that the work is original,
• ZIP package of the designs (as specified above) or a link to a repository,
• Optional additional documentation, e.g., a design brief, style guides, 

*** Important dates ***

• Deadline for logo submission: 28 February 2023 (11:59pm Pacific)
• Announcement of winners:      31 March 2023

*** Selection Procedure and Award ***
The evaluation of the proposals and selection of the winners will be 
caried out by a panel consisting of representatives of the IEEE 
Biometrics Council and IAPR TC4. The winning logo design will receive a 
commemorative plaque and prize money sponsored by IEEE Biometrics Council:

• Competition winner award: 1,000 USD

In case of a team submission, the award money will be divided equally 
among the team members.

*** Disclaimer ***
All elements of the logo design must be original. By submitting a 
proposal, the participant affirms that he/she is the sole author of the 
submitted work (or in the case of a team submission, that the team is 
its sole author) and that he/she has full and exclusive rights to grant 
the IEEE Biometrics Council the authorization to use the work.
If the winner is determined to have violated any rules, he/she will be 
required to forfeit or return the prize, even if the determination is 
made after the prize has been awarded.
The Council and TC4 reserve the right to not select a new official IJCB 
logo if none of the entries meets the expectations. The awards will be 
handed out in any case.
