“It was an attitude of faith to participate in this contest”, affirmed Gustavo Huguenin, 25, the creator of the winning logo of WYDRio2013, which, as of today, will be spread all over the world.

At first sight Gustavo seemed timid and showed a mixture of anxiety and expectation when he arrived at the WYDRio2013 Local Organization Committee. When he received the phone call he was only informed that he had to come to Rio because of the contest, but he had no idea that he would receive the news that he was the winner.

“I was somewhat hopeful to be among the finalists. I barely made it to the contest. I sent my work on the last day, but that work had been so intense for me that I stopped everything, ran, did everything I could so that I wouldn’t lose this opportunity, and I ended up being surprised with the news that I had won. I was chosen by the grace of God”, said Gustavo.
