  • Beijing 2022 Launches Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games Mascots Design Competition


    08/08/18

    Beijing 2022 today launched an international competition for the designs of the mascots for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

    As a part of the competition, people from around the world are invited to submit original designs for the emblematic ambassadors.

    Designers can submit their proposals from 20 to 31 October 2018, either in person or via mail. The designs should embody the Olympic and Paralympic values, reflect Chinese culture and affirm the vision of the 2022 Games.

    The launch of the competition fell on a fitting date, with 8 August marking a decade since the opening of the Olympic Games in 2008. In addition to the mascot design launch, the 10-year anniversary included sports demonstrations and various exhibitions, providing a setting to celebrate the legacies of Beijing 2008 while looking ahead to Beijing 2022.

    Designing mascots will take a youthful turn in September, when elementary and secondary school students across China will have the chance to create their own mascots for the Games in art classes as a part of Beijing 2022’s Olympic Education Programme.

    The winner is expected to be announced in the second half of 2019.
