The American Centers in India are looking for a new logo! Put your graphic skills to work and win a design fellowship to the United States.
We seek the country’s creative community to help us develop a fresh look, which will be widely displayed on all American Center materials. American Centers are the public face of the U.S. Embassy in India. The American Centers in New Delhi and Kolkata, and the U.S. Consulates General in Chennai, Mumbai and Hyderabad support activities that inform the Indian public about American policies, society and values. These activities range from speaking tours and musical concerts, to school outreach, workshops and conferences, English programs, and exhibits. Please review the links above to learn more about the range of our activities.
