LONDON — FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association) has unveiled the Winner of the #FIFADreamContest, which inspired people from around the world to create fan art featuring the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy as part of the Spotlight: Your Dreams campaign.

In total, 16 pieces of artwork were shortlisted, with a public vote determining the Winner. Jose Luis Am from Salta, Argentina, was voted by fans as the contest’s Winner and has won a trip to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™. Jose Luis Am is an Argentinian architect and artist. The winning artwork represents the inspiration provided by two of Argentina’s most legendary footballers, inspiring a nation to dream of what is possible. For Jose Luis, going to a stadium to watch a soccer match is like going to a museum to see art in motion.

FIFA teamed up with eight artists from around the world for “Spotlight: Your Dreams” - a campaign aimed at shining a light on emerging talent, celebrating football fans’ optimism ahead of the tournament, and championing the unifying and inspiring power of the Trophy.

Jose Luis Am said: “I am delighted to win this competition. I truly believe that art and football can allow you to dream, so combining the two and showing that through this competition was special to me.”

Colin Smith, FIFA Chief Operating Officer - World Cup, said: “Congratulations to Jose Luis Am. We look forward to seeing him at the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. We were inspired by many fantastic fan artists, with congratulations also due to all 16 finalists. I want to thank our team of creators, themselves emerging artists who had the opportunity to showcase their artwork on tour to our global audience of millions. Most of all, this campaign was by the fans, and for the fans: there is nothing like a FIFA World Cup to get football fans and entire nations dreaming. We are delighted to give the whole world a platform to imagine, illustrate and share those dreams through the power of fan art. We can’t wait to see which dreams come true on Sunday, 18 December.”

People submitted Fan art via Instagram or Twitter using the #FIFADreamContest hashtag. The judges chose the top 16 submissions and entered them into the FIFA World Cup™ inspired bracket competition, where the fans had the final say.
