The London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG), in partnership with the Design Council, is looking for an expert team to create remarkable, memorable and visionary torches that represent the very best of our nation as the UK begins its Olympic and Paralympic celebrations with the Torch Relays in the summer of 2012. Over 8,000 torches will be produced, and used by the thousands of Torchbearers who will carry the Olympic flame across the UK.

As part of the process, the Design Council is assisting LOCOG in encouraging the best and most appropriately experienced design, engineering and manufacturing businesses to register their interest in this challenge.

In the first instance, LOCOG and the Design Council are encouraging businesses with a track record of creating and producing iconic consumer or industrial products to register their interest on the CompeteFor website (www.competefor.com) which is the online ‘dating agency’ for matching potential suppliers with Games-related business opportunities. CompeteFor allows for an open and transparent procurement process and enables businesses to have access to all relevant business opportunities between now and 2012 – for both LOCOG and the Olympic Delivery Authority.

The Design Council is also assisting designers in registering their interest with background information and guidance on the process that can be accessed at www.designcouncil.org.uk/olympictorch.
