The emblem for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games will be unveiled in the second half of next year, organizers said here on Monday.

Two months after Beijing launched a worldwide campaign to seek designs for the Games logo, Chang Yu, head of the publicity department of the Beijing Organizing Committee for the 2022 Winter Games, told a forum that applications can be submitted online from Nov. 20 to Nov. 30.

"An office has been set up for the design competition," said Chang.

A selection panel will pick 10 candidate designs from the applications, before the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee choose one winning entry and two as back-up designs, said Chang. "The emblem will be unveiled in the second half of 2017 after the Beijing 2022 Organizing Committee complete the procedures of intellectual protection of the design," he said.
