The mascot of the European Youth Olympic Festival (EYOF) in 2019 was presented on Saturday at Skenderija Youth House in Sarajevo, at the Unlimited Innovation and Entrepreneurship Fair.
The mascot, created by an advertising agency from East Sarajevo, was selected by a majority vote on the internet. The EYOF 2019 mascot contest was joined by 28 creators and the voters on social media picked Groodvy as the official mascot.
One of the mascot creators, Admir Isaković, said that the idea evolved from thinking about what is the most important element of winter games.
“So we came up with the simplest answer, which is actually the snow itself. We decided to create a mascot that is essentially a huge snowball,” said Isaković.
EYOF 2019 winter games will be organized by the cities of Sarajevo and East Sarajevo.
