The online voting for the Taipei mascot and photo/video submission runs through Sept. 17. Artist Xiao Qing-yang (蕭青陽) was invited to design six mascots. The winning mascot and winner of the photo/video contest will be announced on Sept. 25. Contest participants are eligible to win plane tickets to Thailand, televisions and cellphones, the department said. For more information, please visit taipei.gov.tw or wretch.cc/blog.citytaipei.
