The cities, in alphabetical order, are: Annecy ( France), Munich ( Germany) and PyeongChang ( Republic of Korea).* The three Applicant Cities will now proceed to Phase 1 of the IOC's two- step procedure, which will lead to the election of the 2018 host city in Durban, South Africa, in July 2011. Phase 1, known as the Candidature Acceptance Procedure, involves a thorough review by the IOC of each city's potential to organise successful Olympic Winter Games in 2018. Cities are required to answer a questionnaire, and their answers are studied by the IOC. At the end of this first phase, the IOC Executive Board selects the cities that will become Candidate Cities. During Phase 2, known as the Candidature Procedure, Candidate Cities will be requested to submit their Candidature File - which is an in- depth description of their Olympic project - and will be subject to a technical assessment made by a visiting team - the IOC Evaluation Commission. The IOC Evaluation Commission's appraisal will be published in a report, and sent to the IOC members no later than one month before they cast their vote on 6 July 2011. The report will also be available to the public on olympic. org. * The cities will be listed in alphabetical order until such time as the official drawing of lots is carried out by the IOC Executive Board. The order of drawing of lots will then be used until the election of the 2018 host city. IOCANNOUNCES BROADCAST AGREEMENTS

12OLYMPIC REVIEW The IOC has launched a dedicated Youth Olympic Games section on its official website www. olympic. org, highlighting the spirit and the fun of the Youth Olympic Games. This Youth Olympic Games section, which has become known as " The Cube", was launched in the autumn following www. olympic. org's revamp. This section will support and promote youth projects and creations worldwide and promote the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games. The Cube will feature news on the upcoming Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games and will also allow young people to engage and participate in YOG- related activities in the build- up to next August. BelowThe new YOG website A new visual identity targeted at young people for the Youth Olympic Games was launched in November 2009. In keeping with the experimental, youthful principles of the Youth Olympic Games, the YOG- DNA label is a not an emblem, nor an institutional mark, but a stamp which helps identify the YOG. It certifies an attitude - " the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games". Gilbert Felli, Olympic Games Executive Director, said: " The Youth Olympic Games aren't just a high level sports event, but also a platform to engage young people in the Olympic Values. The aim of the YOG-DNA label is to represent the Movement for those young people who are ambassadors of " the spirit of the Youth Olympic Games". It is a youthful, dynamic take on Olympic traditions and will become a ' seal of approval' for YOG activities." THECUBEHASLANDED! VISUALIDENTITY MEDALDESIGN COMPETITION The IOC has offered the public a chance to make Olympic history by designing an Olympic medal for the Youth Olympic Games. People around the world have been invited to submit their medal designs for the Youth Olympic Games ( YOG), which will be held in Singapore next year, from 14 to 26 August 2010. Sergey Bubka, Chairman of the Coordination Commission for Singapore 2010 said: " The concept for the first ever Youth Olympic Games has always been not only to reach out to the 3,600 athletes who will participate in Singapore next summer, but also to engage young people in the Olympic values wherever they may be. " By launching the first ever medal design competition online we hope to tap into the creativity and imagination of young people across the world." The public was also invited to vote for the 10 best medal designs which have been submitted to an IOC jury to select the winner. The winning designer will win a trip to the Singapore 2010 Youth Olympic Games next summer and be able to see first hand their design being awarded to the athletes. They will also win a gold medal replica. Keep tuned on the new YOG webpage on www. olympic. org to find out who won the competition!
