To date, entries have been received from over 40 countries, with the youngest candidate aged just 10 years old to the oldest at 52. 

The competition closes in one week’s time on 1 June and with the high standard of entries it is set to be one of the most hotly contested Medal Design Competitions to date since the inaugural Singapore 2010 YOG.

A judging panel including Olympians and Young Ambassadors and Young Reporters from various editions of the Youth Olympic Games will select the winning design and two-runners-up, and results will be announced at the end of June.  The winning design will then feature on the face of the gold, silver and bronze medals awarded in Lillehammer from 12-21 February 2016. 

The winning designer will win a trip to Lillehammer 2016 which includes tickets to the opening ceremony, as well as a full collection of medals featuring their design.
