Mongolian mining student wins logo design competition for 40th anniversary of Mongolia-Canada diplomatic relations — Seventy-four designs were received in the competition among Mongolian students sponsored by the Canadian Embassy in Ulaanbaatar to design the logo commemorating the 40th anniversary of Canada-Mongolia diplomatic relations. The winning design was submitted by B. Bold-Erdene, a second year mining student at the Mongolian University of Science and Technology. Canadian Ambassador Greg Goldhawk presented Bold-Erdene with a new iPhone 5 as a prize, noting that the independent selection panel found it difficult to make a final choice because all the entries reflected different facets of the bilateral relationship. Mongolia opened diplomatic relations with Mongolia on November 30, 1973. The Canadian Embassy in UB opened in 2008. The design is in the public domain and all Canadian companies involved in Mongolia are welcome to use it during this anniversary year.
