The final round was held in the Chengdu City Concert Hall where designers of 12 shortlisted entries presented their works and related details on the stage, elaborating on the themes of their design and answering questions from the judges. The judges then gave the score on the spot. After fierce competition, the design FH0026 won the first prize.

The second prizes went to design works with serial number FH0727, FH0561 and FH1508, and the third prizes were FH1204, FH1049, FH0572 and FH0310. In addition, 25 audience representatives voted on spot for the winner of the Most Popular Award, and each judge picked out a winner for the Judge Favorite Award, which was to recognize the work of those who didn’t enter the final round but won the favor of the judges.

After the competition, the winning design will be developed by an art team led by Sui Jianguo into a series of installations to be settled in the Phoenix Hill Sports Park.

This competition is not only a logo design event, but part of activities heralding the 31st FISU World University Games Chengdu. As a world-level construction and a future landmark of Chengdu, the sports park will host basket games of Summer Universiade next year and the 18th football Asia Cup in 2023. The design of the stadiums featuring culture and sportsmanship is expected to enhance the city image and promote the sports products related.

The competition has gone beyond the circle of design as a stage to show a multi-faceted Chengdu of inclusiveness, affinity and professionalism. Chengdu has been showcasing to the world its interpretation and integration of sportsmanship and city character. As Wang Hai said, “A city dwells on its history and past, but prospers on its future.” The logo design is a symbol for creativity and sportsmanship with which people here usher in a bright future.
