Video Contest Deadline Extended
We are pleased to announce that John Wiley and Sons, Inc., is sponsoring the prizes for the International Year of Statistics video competition. Please visit the competition websitehttp://www.statistics2013.org/videocontest.cfm for details. Please note the new deadline: February 28, 2013.
New Language-Specific Logos Available
The International Year of Statistics (Statistics2013) logo is now available in several languages: Dutch, English, French, Hindi, Italian, Mandarin, Portuguese and Spanish. On each version the phrases “International Year of Statistics” and “Participating Organization” are presented in the appropriate language. If you need one of these language-specific logos to post to your organization’s website, you can download it fromhttp://www.statistics2013.org/logos.cfm
To have a version of the Statistics2013 logo created for your country’s language, please email the following information to Jeffrey@amstat.org:
1. The interpretation of “International Year of Statistics” in the appropriate font in this format: International Year of Statistics=“The interpreted phrase”
2. The interpretation of “Participating Organization” in the appropriate font in this format: Participating Organization=“The interpreted phrase”
3. A high-resolution PDF document or a .tif file of the interpretations of the “International Year of Statistics” and “Participating Organization”. (This file will be used to compare against the font to ensure it was transmitted properly. If it doesn’t compare accurately, we will use the image of the interpretations from the PDF or .tif in the logo instead. This step will ensure accuracy of your custom logo.)
Once your language-specific logo is created it will be posted to the Statistics2013 website and we will send you an email to let you know the logo is available for download.
