Jilin Provincial Government's Information Office held a press conference on Thursday in provincial capital Changchun City to start the solicitation of designs for its Expo logo and mascot.

The solicitation also seeks items to be exhibited at the Expo 2010 and materials to promote its participation in the event which begins on May 1 in Shanghai.

The logo and mascot should reflect Expo 2010's theme "Better City, Better Life" and Jilin's exhibition theme for the event "Songs and Poems at foot of Changbai Mountain."

The office also sets a 12,000 yuan first-place prize for the mascot design winner and 4,000 yuan reward for each of the two second prize winners.
