Social projects contest. Application deadline: 28 December
The Russian competition Innosocium is aimed at discovering new communication ideas for solving social problems, as well as at identifying and encouraging talented students.
Students are encouraged to develop their projects in three main categories: active longevity, inclusive society and territorial development.
The finalists will be announced at the Russian Investment Forum in February 2019. The winners will receive funding to implement their project and will also be able to present their ideas at the St Petersburg International Economic Forum in 2019.
The competition is led by the Roscongress Foundation and the charitable foundation Art, Science and Sport. Entries can be submitted on the competition’s website until 28 December 2018.
At the presentation of the Innosocium social projects contest on November 21, a master class by Natalia Dundina, creative director of Leo Burnett, one of the leading advertising agencies, took place at the New Economic School on the implementation of social advertising projects.
“Every society has work to do and room to grow. And it’s important that young people don’t just speak out about socially pertinent issues, but that they have a direct opportunity to participate, decide on an equal footing and change lives for themselves. In that context, Innosocium is making decisive steps in the right direction, and I am glad to be part of the project an of the expert council”, noted Natalya Dundina.
