Last chance to design the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic medals!
2 April 2019
LAUSANNE 2020: Calling all talented designers and creatives across the globe - You could be the creator of the Youth Olympic Games Lausanne 2020 medals!
The winning design and two runners-up will be selected by a judging panel made up of the Young Change-Makers and Young Reporters who have been involved in previous editions of the Games.
Also joining the panel will be the Chair of the IOC Coordination Commission for Lausanne 2020, Olympian Danka Bartekova, Virginie Faivre, Lausanne 2020 President and ski freestyle legend, and Viviane Morey, dean at Eracom as well as Lausanne's professional school of applied arts and communication, whose students created the 2020 Youth Olympic Games mascot.
The winners will be selected at the end of April 2019, and their design will feature on the gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to athletes at Lausanne 2020.
The reverse of the medal will be designed by the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic Games Organising Committee after this contest, in order to have a look that works well with the winning design of this year’s competition.
In addition to the prestige of creating Olympic history, the winning designer will win a trip to Lausanne to enjoy the Opening Ceremony and witness the awarding of their medals at the sports competitions, as well as a full set of medals featuring their design for them to cherish.
