The expert committee of the Belarusian Ice Hockey Association has picked three most deserving works.
The aurochs was created by Vital Ortsyukh, the lynx is the work of Valer Karablin, the beaver being designed by Yauhen Sidarovich.
The expert committee examined about 40 works sent for the competition with respect to their compliance to the contest’s requirements. The 2014 IHWC mascot must be identified with Belarus and connected with hockey; moreover, it should trigger positive emotions. On its basis life-size puppets and promotional items will be manufactured.
The experts gave scores to each design; the aurochs being the gainer.
