Doodling and Googling: Brit kids artwork vote for prime homepage logo


Google have been running a competition to find out what UK kids think of British life today, and to put their thoughts into artwork based around the Google logo.

They’ve had over 15,000 entries which were whittled down to 10 regional finalists in each of the three age ranges by a panel of experts including Dennis Hwang, the original Doodle designer. These 30 now go to the public vote and eventually one overall winner will be chosen by Hwang, their logo appearing on the UK Google home page for 24 hours and viewable by up to 18 million people on that day.

The 3 National Age Group Winners will receive a state of the art interactive white board for their school complete with projector, training and installation and a multi e-maths software package. from Hitachi. The 30 Regional Winners will receive a framed copy of their doodle, and will be invited to attend an awards ceremony in London to announce the National Winners.

The vote closes on Sunday 15th October, so head over to Doodle 4 Google and vote.
