Call For Ideas: A Few More Days To Design An Olympic Mascot!

Please ignore my Dogduck in bat-diguise here, I'm not participating in this very olympic mascot design contest. The character here is just a joke, I couldn't resist to add something looney. Dogduck cosplaying Batman.

Anyways, here's the thing now, I'm in the jury of the 11th Special Olympics World Winter Games' official mascot and what is more is that the call for ideas/designs has been extended until Monday, January 19th, 2015. Though the call's dossier is in German only, it's open to everyone in the world to participate.

The call is segmented in two very rounds of evaluation. Here are the details in short:
