The INNOSOCIUM Nationwide Social Project Competition will be accepting online applications from 1 October. The competition is a joint project by the Roscongress Foundation and the Art, Science and Sport charity foundation.
Participants will comprise student teams from universities with dedicated marketing, management, advertising, and public relations faculties.
The objective of the competition is to raise young peoples awareness of current social issues and possible solutions, and to spread effective experience of planning social projects.
Ideas for communications solutions will be pitched against each other in three priority areas: active ageing, social inclusion, and regional development.
The student projects will be judged by an expert panel, whose members will include representatives from leading Russian universities, government departments, businesses, and creative agencies, as well as experts from the Effie Awards Russia, an international advertising and marketing communications prize.
The competition finalists will be announced at the Russian Investment Forum in February. The winners of the competition will be awarded RUB 500,000 to implement their project, which they will present at SPIEF 2019. Partners of the award include the Russian Copper Company, the Memory of Generations charity foundation, and the Art, Science, and Sport charity foundation.
