Contest results
The international jury has come up with the results of the Logo and Identity Design Contest for the 6-th Winter Cycling Congress that will take place in Moscow in February 2018 for the first time. The choice was made among more than 500 contest proposals submitted from 40 countries around the world.
According to the rules those willing to participate should have developed a logo and key identity elements of the contest. Both professionals and the amateur designers could take part and there were no restrictions on age or country of origin. The winner was defined by the international jury from seven countries. The winner will be awarded 1000 Euro.
To choose between hundreds of logos wasn't a piece of cake! After the continuous discussion the contest proposal of Elena Chechkina from Novosibirsk was defined as a winner.
The winning proposal is one of the most detailed and developed among other applications. Besides the logo itself it contains various additional identity elements, as well as patterns that can be used in promo-materials and for souvenir items.
The second place went to Margarita Yerastova from the USA.
