The competition came about after the original logo, designed by Kenjiro Sano, was scrapped following a plagiarism row with Belgian designer Olivier Debie, who claimed it resembled an identity he had created for a theatre in Liège.

Winning designer Tokolo will receive a cash prize of JPY 1,000,000 (£5,500) and tickets to the opening ceremonies of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.
