Graphic Design and Video Concept Competition in Preparation for SPIEF 2022


The 25th St. Petersburg International Economic Forum will take place on 15–18 June 2022. In the run-up to this major business event, the Roscongress Foundation is organizing a creative competition to develop a graphic design for the Forum as well as concepts for the videos that will be shown during the plenary session.

Russian and international companies as well as creative teams with experience in implementing similar projects are invited to take part in the competition. Submissions will be accepted from 1 December 2021 until 31 January 2022 in hard copy or by email at: contest@forumspb.com. Detailed information about the competition’s stages and conditions is contained in its regulations.

The proposed design and video scenarios should correspond to the main and required features of the Forum and reflect its international status, global economic agenda, innovation, long-term outlook, and a business-oriented approach.

The venue of the event should also be taken into account. The use of images related to St. Petersburg, its history, rich cultural heritage, scale, openness, and forward-looking approach is encouraged.

The submissions will be evaluated by a panel of renowned experts. The competition’s organizing committee will select three winning projects in each of the three nominations based on the voting results. All of them will be acknowledged with special awards, and their authors will have the opportunity to take part in the 25th anniversary of the SPIEF. The design that comes in first will be integrated into the design style of the event’s venue. Two videos, a long and a short one, will be prepared based on the best concepts and shown to SPIEF guests and participants.

All information about the rules and the progress of the competition is available on the Forum’s official website: forumspb.com. Keep an eye out for updates.
