Entering is the easy part: go to www.medal-design-competition.com, then find your inspiration and submit your very own design. The competition opens today and runs until 12 January 2018.
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 the YOG since the inaugural Singapore 2010 edition of the Games. Also joining the panel will be IOC members and sporting legends Angela Ruggiero, Chair of the IOC Athletes’ Commission and ice hockey Olympic champion, and Li Lingwei, Chair of the IOC Coordination Commission for Buenos Aires 2018 and badminton star.
The winning design will be selected at the end of January 2018, and this will then feature on the gold, silver and bronze medals awarded to athletes in Buenos Aires from 6 to 18 October 2018.
In addition to the prestige of creating Olympic history, the winning designer will win a trip to Buenos Aires 2018 to enjoy the Opening Ceremony and witness the awarding of their medals in the sports competitions, as well as a full collection of medals featuring their design for the winner to cherish.
So what are you waiting for? Create a piece of Olympic history and enter your medal design!
