World Cooperative Congress visual identity 2020: call to designers (Up to €5000)

Deadline: January 2020

The International Cooperative Alliance (ICA) invites designers worldwide to bid to be the creators of their World Cooperative Congress visual identity.

The World Cooperative Congresses are a historical moment for the movement and are convened only on very special occasions. It is the decade encounter of cooperatives from all around.

This Congress is particularly special because the ICA is celebrating its 125th anniversary and the 25th anniversary of the Statement on the Cooperative Identity. The general topic of the Congress is ‘Cooperative identity’, which includes the universal cooperative definition, values and principles.

The 2020 Congress will be held in Seoul (Republic of Korea) from 11-16 December 2020. It will be the second Congress to be held outside Europe.


  • The 5 designers or agencies selected to submit creative visuals will receive €500 each.
  • The project fee for the agency chosen as our full project partner will receive a fee of €5000.



Design competition process: The selection process for our 2020 Congress visual identity will have 2 stages:

  • Stage 1: Credentials and written response
    Designers interested in creating our 2020 Congress visual identity are invited to send a portfolio selection of their relevant work, plus a written response (up to 2 pages) explaining why they would be a good project partner, and responding to the creative brief. We are not asking for visuals at this stage.
  • Stage 2: Visual submissions
    Five designers will be asked to submit creative ideas in visual form, in return for a ‘pitch payment’ of €500.

One of the five designers will then be chosen to partner us in the for full design project. The project fee for the agency chosen as our full project partner will receive a fee of €5000.

Submit your credentials and initial response to the brief by 6th January 2020 to Leire Luengo, ICA Director of Communications at [email protected].
