A mascot competition started last year by the 2014 Sochi Olympics Organization Committee has ended. We cannot show sympathy to the 4 selected mascots among 12 charming finalists because they help to conceal the genocide that killed many of our ancestors and expelled most of the rest from our motherland, where we had once lived free. It does not matter how Krasnaya Polyana (Kbaada), which is the Olympic village that took its name from the blood spilled on it, is decorated. It also does not matter how the organizers cast dust in the world's eyes. For we, Circassians spread all over the world, are the real proof of a bloody past. No matter where we live, we will stand together against these lies!

One Design from us!

We are against the Olympic games which will take place in spite of the appeal we built through signatures and letters during the candidacy period of Sochi. We recently added a new component to this awareness campaign against the harm committed to the environment, history, identity and memory: We have started a competition in order to choose the best design for the Sochi Olympics from among the freedom loving people of this world including Circassians in homeland and Diaspora.

Subject: A logo, mascot or graphic design which captures the bloody history of Sochi and the cruelty carried out against Circassians to be sent to the Sochi Olympics Committee and used in the No Sochi 2014 campaign.

Aim: To provide visual material to the international campaign we implemented and also support it in order to bring historical facts to the attention of world public opinion.


Start of the competition: 10.10.2011

Deadline for design submission: 16.03.2012

Pre-selection by jury: 17-18.03.2012

Start of public voting for selected designs: 19.03.2012

End of public voting: 01.04.2012

Selection by jury: 2-8.04.2012

Declaration of the winners: 09.04.2012


First Prize: 250 USD

Second Prize: 150 USD

Third Prize: 100 USD

Prestige Prize:  Designs that receive the first three prizes will be used in the May 21 Genocide Protest this year and all Nosochi2014 activities.
