The logo of the project identifies the project and is used on the website. The logo also represents the GESPORT project and aims to raise awareness of gender equality in sports organizations’ governing bodies. Another goal was for young students to sensitize and think about gender equality in the decision-making bodies of sport. To determine the project logo, we organized an international competition among Fine Arts students in the five countries that form the association. Of a total 49 candidates who submitted their logos for evaluation, 28 were from Spain, 17 were from Italy, and four were from the UK (Image 9). Then the jury, which was formed by the project team, selected 13 finalist logos to be submitted to a voting process. A total of 1,780 votes were received (after eliminating invalid votes), and the best three logos were awarded prize money.
