The Beijing Organising Committee for the 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games hereby solicits worldwide design proposals for the emblems of the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.

The Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will take place in Beijing and Zhangjiakou in 2022. By then, tens of thousands of athletes, sport officials and reporters from all over the world will happily gather in Beijing to celebrate this global sports gala, while billions of audience will watch the Games on site or via TV broadcast. Hosting a fantastic, extraordinary and excellent edition of the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will also leave precious cultural and sport legacies for Beijing, China and the Olympic Movement.

The emblems of Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games are important visual-image elements of Beijing 2022 Olympic, as well as an important vehicle for demonstrating the concepts of Beijing 2022 and the Chinese culture.

The emblems of the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games should be artworks developed on the basis of people’s creative ideas, inspirations, wisdom and suggestions pooled from all walks of life. These emblems, which are supposed to be globally-accepted artistic works, should serve as a window to demonstrate the Chinese image to the world.

The Solicitation will encourage the sport-themed and culture-based design proposals created by fully utilising the rich Chinese cultural and artistic resources, and engage people from all walks of life in the preparation of the Games through this emblem solicitation, so as to ensure the perfect combination of national, artistic and innovative features of the emblems for both the Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games.

The design proposals for the emblems of Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games should not only reflect the Olympic Spirit and the spirit of the Paralympic Movement, but also embody the culture and values of the host city and country. The design proposals should be inspiring and cohesive while being able to win the extensive recognition from the domestic and international communities. The emblems should satisfy the requirements for TV broadcast and produce ideal visual effects in TV broadcast. The texture and size of presentation materials required by the design proposals should not affect the overall visual aesthetics and expressiveness of the design, and the extended application of the design proposals in new technologies should also be considered.

Key words of design:

Fantastic, Extraordinary, Excellent

Run the Games in a green, shared, open and honest manner

Millions of people participating in winter sports

Joyful Rendezvous upon Pure Ice and Snow

Sustainable development

Cohesion, Sport, Strength

World, Reunion, Festival

The Beijing 2022 Organising Committee welcomes and invites people from all walks of life that are interested in and competent for designing the emblems for Olympic Winter Games and Paralympic Winter Games to participate in the Solicitation and contribute their wisdom and strength to Beijing 2022. The technical documents of the Solicitation of Design Proposals for the Emblems of the Beijing 2022 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games will be available to the public shortly. Please pay close attention to Beijing 2022 Organising Committtee’s official website (www.beijing2022.cn) for updates.
