The jury consisted of employees of the Chaplin office, members of the Chaplin’s World team and Laura Chaplin, Chaplin’s granddaughter. We would like to express our thanks again to all of the participants for taking the time to submit their artwork, and for being Chaplin fans.
The competition was very tough. Amazingly, there were 195 participating logos - far more than we expected – from six continents, from such diverse countries as Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Canada, Colombia, Cyprus, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Iran, Italy, Lithuania, Malaysia, Nepal, Norway, the Philippines, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, the USA and Venezuela.
We were so impressed with the submissions that it took us some time to come to a decision, and have decided to share a few of our favorite runners-up in the following days.
In 1959, Chaplin released The Chaplin Revue, comprising three of his early silent films (A Dog’s Life, Shoulder Arms and The Pilgrim) with an orchestral music track he composed with the help of his music associate, Eric james. Chaplin also wrote the lyrics for The Pilgrim’s title song, “Bound for Texas”, which was sung by Matt Munro.
In the coming days, we’ll publish a new track from the original soundtracks of A Dog’s Life, Shoulder Arms and The Pilgrim once a day on Youtube so you can listen from anywhere! Subscribe to our Youtube channel to keep up with our daily posts.
