Egtc Go, European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation, published an international competition for the selection of the logo and visual identity of the European Capital of Culture 2025 Nova Gorica - Gorizia.

Under the motto Go! Borderless, the borderless international project promotes and implements one city of culture in two cities, which together overcome all "borders": care for the common development of the territory, friendship, development of a common cultural centre and valorisation of all our cultures and traditions of the shared space. The visual identity of this unique capital of culture, which will be an expression of a real "cultural earthquake" at the junction of two cities, will be our mirror to the world and a common message that culture builds bridges and tears down walls creating #GO! Borderless worlds.

The tender is open until 30 September 2021 at 5 pm. The participation is open for graphic / design companies, advertising / communication agencies; graphic designers, designers and architects or artists with status; graduates of public and private study programs in fine arts, graphics, design or communication.

The theme (slogan) of the European Capital of Culture 2025 is GO! Borderless, which embodies our desire to create a city without borders. Nova Gorica and Gorizia overcoming together all kinds of "borders": two cities divided by the wars of the twentieth century, united by close collaboration and friendship, have set themselves an ambitious goal: to become the European Capital of Cross-border Culture. The central space of our cooperation is the shared square between the two cities: Piazzale della Transalpina / Trg Evrope, where the symbolic and physical space of the meeting takes place. It is the central venue of our cultural and artistic programme, where a programme, entitled EPICenter or "cultural earthquake" is to take place as a symbolic point of contact that for decades was divided by a national border and today aspires to become a symbol city of Europe.

The project is intertwined and completed by the following sub-themes:

Epic - A new physical and virtual exhibition space in a building straddling the border will host a unique exhibition that will encourage the public to reflect not only on historical events, but also on current issues, human rights and European values.

Go! Europe - speaks of places of memory and new arrivals, of how we can look at each other without looking the other way, of how together we will open new horizons, get closer and focus on a future without borders.

Go! Share speaks about all our languages, our communication codes, as well as about passive bilingualism.

Go! Green emphasizes greenery, sustainability, the promotion of local food and wines, linking culinary traditions, thinking about our health and well-being in Europe.

The competitor ranked number 1 in the selection will receive an award of €7,000.00 (seven thousand euros). Once the designation has become effective, the award will be paid to the winner upon issue of a regular invoice or equivalent document. The prize is intended gross of any withholdings, i.e., inclusive of taxes and any other contributions and is considered to be remuneration for professional services.

More information about the conditions of participation is published in the tender documentation, which is available in Slovene, Italian and English on the website of the organizer here.

The competition will be held in a single phase, and applicants will participate anonymously. The tender procedure will be carried out entirely in electronic form on the EGTC GO platform in accordance with the instructions in the tender documentation.
