A plethora of creative suggestions

We are pleased and grateful for the numerous submissions we received by post and email for our mascot competition. We received over 500 drawings and handicrafts. From pandas, unicorns, robots, squirrels to sporty mythical creatures, everything is represented.

Stay tuned to find out which idea will inspire our mascot for the European Championships 2022.

We are looking for the best idea

From all submitted proposals, the best entries will be shortlisted. With the help of our knowledgeable jury, we will decide in July 2021 which of these artworks will be crowned the winner.

From reporters and top athletes to the designer of Waldi, the mascot of the 1972 Summer Olympics - our jury combines a wealth of expertise. Meet the members!

"To live up to our slogan 'Back to the Roofs', we had to come up with something special for our mascot. Creating enthusiasm and empathy is an ability that comes naturally to children – that is how the idea of the mascot competition came about. I am very happy to be part of the decision-making process as a jury member and I am not only curious about all the creative suggestions, but also about who will succeed the great Otl Aicher."
