An Olympiad assignment includes the completion of a creative project (two files: a cover page and the project’s presentation) on one of the topics under the following proposed subject areas: Design Communications, Animation and Illustration, Environmental Design, Interior Design, Design and Programming, Design and Contemporary Art, Game Design; Event Design: Theater and Performance; CGI and Visual Effects; Digital Product Design and Promotion; Media and Design; Design and Advertising; Comic Book; Fashion Design; Photography; Branding in Fashion.
When working on their creative project, participants should select the subject area and complete a series of works on an independently devised topic (from six to 12 works). A project’s topic shall be selected independently and must fully demonstrate the participant’s creative potential and thinking.
A participant’s work should feature consistency in style; conceptual cohesion; an original premise; a harmonious colour scheme and composition. Works may be produced with the application of any technique, but they should develop into a single series with an overarching theme. Furthermore, projects may be produced with computer tools or manually.
