As part of the "Open your Lukomorye" campaign, Adobe invited Russian artists to reimagine the legendary Lukomorye from Alexander Pushkin's poem "Ruslan and Lyudmila" with a modern twist. The contest’s concept offered space for self-expression and creative self-realization.
From July 7 to August 13, 2021, more than 500 young creators from all over Russia shared their vision of the legendary Lukomorye (all works can be found via tag #откройсвоёлукоморье in the Instagram account and Behance account).
The 5 winners were announced at OFFF Moscow international design and digital art festival:
Aleksey Zhigulskiy (@alexscushny) — “Lukomorye 21”
NorthxCarolina (@northxcarolina) — “Lukomorye 24”

Anastasi Glavatskih (@sun_anastasi) — "Unspell me"

Their artworks were showcased at OFFF Moscow on September 3-4. The winners also received the invitation for a three-week stay at the Gridchinhall art residence and a one-year subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud.
The works of the winners can be seen on the official website of the competition.
