On June 13, 2019, the final of the most transparent creative tender Creative Challenge took place, during which the most accurate creative strategy for the national promotional campaign that will promote Ukrainian culture and its development was determined as a result of voting by jury and audience members.


The Creative Challenge is organized by the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation in partnership with the Cannes Lions Representatives in Ukraine with the support of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).


10 finalist teams presented their ideas to an expanded jury panel (Expert, Honorary, Media and Mass Media) and the audience. The weight of the evaluation of each of the panels was equal to a factor of 25% of the total result in calculating the absolute scores of participants. Another 25% of the significance of the vote was given to the audience that joined voting on the day of the event.


According to the results of the voting, the winners of the tender were determined – the team of Ilya Anufrienko, Kateryna Anufrienko with the creative concept “Culture brings together”! You can get acquainted with the presentation of the winners by following the link.


The Creative Challenge concept is designed to ensure a truly transparent tendering process and, at the same time, to involve experts and all interested representatives of the creative and intellectual industries in creating a high-quality product.


The organizers relied on their own experience and successful cases of colleagues from the industry in order to create a perfect format of creative tender. After all, they believe that when it comes to a national campaign, the involvement of the professional community and the public is important at all stages of the project.


           “This year’s Creative Challenge took place in an improved format. Together with colleagues from the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation, we managed to implement the most transparent mechanism of tender selection and we hope that it will gain popularity in Ukraine, and not only in the creative sphere because transparent choice is the foundation of society. We would like to thank our UCF colleagues who clearly spelled out and described the brief, USAID for supporting the Battle of the Creators, and all of our partners who made the competition possible” said Konstantin Kuznyetsov, Cannes Lions official representative in Ukraine.


“It is very nice to admit that the public has taken an active position and joined the vote, thanks to which we have a really open tender. We were looking forward to the lists of finalists and watching the ratings of ideas, today we finally congratulate the winners!  Our cooperation with the creative community is only the first step in promoting Ukrainian culture, which contributes to the consolidation of values ​​that define Ukrainians as a progressive nation that does not see itself without art” said Yulia Fediv, Executive Director of the Ukrainian Cultural Foundation.
