Google Doodle showcases emerging artists while announcing the winners of the competition

The annual Google Doodle contest is back, and with it comes a new set of contest winners.

The contest, held in the US since 2008, highlights some of the most creative and talented individuals as winners’ doodles are featured on Google Doodle.

Admission is free and open to the majority of the public. Although Google Doodles may sometimes appear like random changes to the Google logo on the site, they usually celebrate a significant event or historical figure.

The design varies between doodles, but they usually contain the letters of the typical Google logo.

How can I apply for the next Google Doodle contest?

This year’s competition is now over. Google said those interested in entering the Doodle for Google 2023 contest should bookmark the Doodle for Google site for updates on the 2023 contest, which is set to reopen for submissions this winter.

According to Google Doodle, “Parents, teachers, nonprofit organizations, and after-school programs are welcome to submit artwork on behalf of K-12 students.

“When teachers and after-school programs enter Doodles on behalf of their students, the registration form must be signed by each student’s parent or guardian. Teachers can enter multiple doodles at once, but only one original doodle per student. Regardless of the input channel, the $50,000 technology award goes to the winner’s school.”

In addition to the US contest, the Doodle for Google contest is held in other countries throughout the year.
