|Results Doris Championship, 2014|
For the fourth year, the International Festival of Mind and Doris Championship, a competition of creativity featuring our Doris puzzle, took place in high schools in 8 European countries: Croatia, Italy, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Austria, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
Beginning in October 2013, and organized by Zdravko Zivkovic, the creator of Doris, the competitions ran for nine months, with the finalists selected by an international jury of 12 judges, among them Dr. Andy Liu from Canada, Toby Gottfried and Kate Jones from U.S.A., and Teja Krasek, an artist from Slovenia.
You can also watch them in greater detail as a slideshow on YouTube.
Zdravko Zivkovic reports that all participants were very satisfied and all schools are ready to continue the competitions. They experienced the results as an incentive next time to be even better at expressing their ideas. All of them received a prize and went home happy and with beautiful memories.
A report about the final ceremony of the Festival of Mind in the Parliament of Vojvodina is published on the website of the Government of Vojvodina. It is in Serbian, so you may want to use a translator program: 2014 Festival of Mind. See also the Photo Gallery.
There is a great collection of photos on Zdravko's Facebook page dedicated to the Doris Festival of Mind, like this picture of the 2014 champion, Maja Gubic, holding her deluxe Doris set awarded by Kadon.
The album also includes photos of Zdravko's two daughters, Isidora and Teodora. Did you know they each contributed part of the DORIS name?
The sponsor of the Festival of Mind, the government of Vojvodina, has produced 1000 sets of Doris in a nice cardboard version, dedicated only for use in the competitions, not for commercial distribution. You can see their sets in some of the competition photos. Here's the handsome box design:
