A Mumbai man has emerged as the winner from nearly 900 entries sent to the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) for its silver jubilee logo contest, the rights panel said on Friday.
Several contests were organised online through the MyGov portal seeking people's involvement and participation in the promotion and protection of human rights, in the run-up to the 25th year anniversary celebrations of the commission this year.
"A total of 893 entries were received for the logo design category and 4,237 entries for slogan/tagline category from the people of varied age groups from different parts of the country," the NHRC said in a statement.
Bansi Lal Ketki from Mumbai in Maharashtra won the first prize of Rs 50,000 along with a certificate in the logo design contest.
His design artistically adds the numerals '25' to the existing logo of the NHRC, using the theme of the tricolour.
Tabrej Qureshi from Chhindwara in Madhya Pradesh has bagged the top prize in the slogan/tagline contest.
His tagline entry was: 'Awaaz Aapke Adhikar Ki' and slogan -- 'Desh may vikas ki aayge bahar, jab hoga surakshit manav adhikar', the statement said.
He would receive a prize of Rs 20,000 along with a certificate.
The NHRC was established on October 12, 1993, under the Protection of the Human Rights (PHR) Act, 1993.
A few programmes have been held to mark the occasion and a few more are in the pipeline.
