The competition is launched

Here we go. The IOC and the Organizing Committee have kicked off the medal design competition for the 2024 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Gangwon, South Korea (January 19 to February 1). It will end on March 8, 2023, with the winning design to be announced at the end of March. A jury consisting of IOC youth reporters, Gangwon 2024 youth representatives, an IOC youth leader and an athlete member of the Olympian Artist Program will select the top three entries. The first prize: a round trip for two to the Gangwon 2024 Winter Youth Games, with access to the opening ceremony and sports events, plus a set of medals and other rewards. Additional prizes will also be awarded to the second and third place designs. Note: the competition is specifically about the design of the front side of the medals, with the back side designed by the organizing committee. Launched for the first time at the YOG in Singapore in 2010, the medal design competition was won by a 24-year-old New Zealander, Zakea Page, for the 2020 winter edition in Lausanne. He will be part of the jury that will choose the three best projects for Gangwon 2024.
