The Tokyo Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games has decided to unveil the four final candidate logos for the big event in 2020 on April 8.
The decision came at the meeting of the Emblem Selection Committee on March 28. The organization has narrowed the candidates to four from 14,599 entries in the logo design competition. The finalist designs are currently going through trademark checks and the organization is preparing applications for trademark registration. Once trademark checks and registration are cleared, the designs will go up on the organization's official website. The organization will then solicit public opinions via the Internet and by mail for a week to 10 days to use them as references in the final selection process.
In the final screening, all of the 21 Emblem Selection Committee members will vote on the new logo candidates, and the design that wins the majority of votes will be adopted. The new Olympics and Paralympics logos are expected to be finalized by the end of April.
