Doordarshan is an integral part of our childhood and we all remember the famous Doordarshan tune. No other channel can replace the memories we have with this oldest channel.
Now Doordarshan decided to bring some changes to the logo of the channel and conducted a competition between July 23 and August 20 last year. Thousands of people participated in the competition and send their entries. Just a day ago Prasar Bharti shared the shortlisted logos from the entries on Twitter.

And twitteratis did not seem to like the new logos. Many compared the shortlisted ones to the original logo and called the current one better. While others made fun of the person who picked these from the rest and asked him to resign.
Look at the 4th logo. With a Kabootar. If this was in the Top 5. Don't know baaki 9995 entries kaisi thi. https://t.co/HL73Rnyf0u

These are terrible in their current forms. Logos should never be selected from contests. Hire real designers, pay them, and ask them to build a brand’s entire design language, not just a logo. https://t.co/MV1cHChXsr

Logo adds beauty and value to the channel . Creativity is to be found in the art of designing it . Short listed logos are not looking good as can be verified from the comments . Better simply write ' DoorDarshan ' and above it the region specific name in an attractive colour .

Prasar bharti.. really??? That's the best you could find? Instead of these embarrassments, stick to your old logo. Or reopen the contest for better entries! https://t.co/Vpfxr8kdiG

Sach batao kitne entries aaye the? Kyunki apne desh ka talent pool itna kharab nahi ho sakta.

Crowdsourcing at it's worst. I cannot believe that these are the top five logos from a population of more than a billion @srishagrawal

These look really awful.
Out of 10000 entries, if these are the 5 top logo designs selected, then you need to change the team who selected these awful designs and not the logo! #doordarshan
