London Olympic Torch Design Competition

London Olympic officials have set up a competition to design the London Olympic torch.

The London Olympic Games Organising Committee chief executive Paul Deighton, said he was looking for a team to design the torches “that represent the very best of our nation”.

“The creation of the torches to carry the Olympic and Paralympic Flame is a unique opportunity for London 2012 to literally shine a light on the UK’s best design, engineering and manufacturing talent.”

The competition is open until 22nd August 2010 to submit details about the first stage of the process. Then a panel of experts from the London Olympic Games organising committee, the Design Council and sports bodies will handpick a shortlist of just 5 designers to further develop their Olympic torch ideas.

See the official London Olympics website for more details.
