New Neo-Humanity Illustration Competition

Dear Friends! 
We are Extending the Deadline for the illustration competition "Neo-Humanity" 
so that our ever increasing number of supporters outside Russia can also take part.


We are launching a new illustrations competition devoted to "Neo-Humanity" with an increased prize fund.

The competition will be held in two categories:

Nomination category 1. Illustration of "Neo - Humanity". Prize - Apple MacBook Air.

Nomination category 2. Motivator illustration. Prize - Microsoft Xbox 360 250Gb + Kinect.

There are two stages in the competition. First, the jury will select 15 of the best pictures from submitted works from each category, 30 altogether. During the second stage of the contestthe members of "2045 Initative" in an on-line open vote will choose one winner in each category.

Dates of the first stage of the competition: July 3, 2012 - October 1, 2012. 

Dates of the second stage of the competition: October 15, 2012 - November 1, 2012.

Terms and requirements for competitors

Works in the first nomination should be devoted to the following topics: Project "Avatar A", "Avatar B", "Avatar C" and "Avatar D" ("Body-hologram"), the transfer of consciousness to a non- biological carrier, the victory over death through advancedtechnologies.


 We would ask you to create in your drawings a positive image of the future "Neo-Human" which will convey our vision of an alternative carrier for human consciousness.

- The "2045 Initiative" is a peaceful scientific project, therefore illustrations which depict robots with weapons will be rejected.

- We believe that "Neo-Humans" will have more functional, agile and stronger bodies. They will have many additional features that will allow them to move with the speed of aircraft without external propulsion mechanisms or to reach the ocean floor without diving suits. They will be able to live in the open air without discomfort, explore outer space etc.

However, a Neo-Human will not become a robot with a 'metallic' look. During the first stageof artificial human body development it will only differ from a real one in that it’s humanistic physical features will be perfect, it will possess an elegant shape and display elements of embedded gadgets and devices.

Submissions in nomination category 2 should contain an illustration that draws attention to the topic of the cybernetic immortality and conveys the possibilities that the transference of human consciousness to a more capable carrier would entail. The submission should also contain a slogan, which should be short, memorable, inspiring and witty. For the topics of illustrations, see nomination category 1.

Additional requirements:

- Only one submission per category can be submitted, the same submission cannot be included in both categories.

- Number of submissions per participant is not limited.

- Work may be performed in any technique. Competitors may submit drawings, paintings, maps, posters, comic books, computer graphics and collages. In nomination category two, photographs can also be submitted if they were taken by the author the work.

- Close-ups and high detail illustrations are especially welcome.

- Works are accepted only in electronic form sent to konkurs2045@2045.ru.

- In the subject line your name or nickname should be entered.

- In the body of the letter please indicate in which nomination you are submitting your work as well as your occupation.

- Minimum resolution of submitted work should be no less than 1920x1080 pixels.

- By submitting his or her work for the competition, the author agrees with the rules and conditions listed above.

/ About us

Founded by Russian entrepreneur Dmitry Itskov in February 2011 with the participation of leading Russian specialists in the field of neural interfaces, robotics, artificial organs and systems.

The main goals of the 2045 Initiative: the creation and realization of a new strategy for the development of humanity which meets global civilization challenges; the creation of optimale conditions promoting the spiritual enlightenment of humanity; and the realization of a new futuristic reality based on 5 principles: high spirituality, high culture, high ethics, high science and high technologies. 

The main science mega-project of the 2045 Initiative aims to create technologies enabling the transfer of a individual’s personality to a more advanced non-biological carrier, and extending life, including to the point of immortality. We devote particular attention to enabling the fullest possible dialogue between the world’s major spiritual traditions, science and society.

A large-scale transformation of humanity, comparable to some of the major spiritual and sci-tech revolutions in history, will require a new strategy. We believe this to be necessary to overcome existing crises, which threaten our planetary habitat and the continued existence of humanity as a species. With the 2045 Initiative, we hope to realize a new strategy for humanity's development, and in so doing, create a more productive, fulfilling, and satisfying future.

The "2045" team is working towards creating an international research center where leading scientists will be engaged in research and development in the fields of anthropomorphic robotics, living systems modeling and brain and consciousness modeling with the goal of transferring one’s individual consciousness to an artificial carrier and achieving cybernetic immortality.

An annual congress "The Global Future 2045" is organized by the Initiative to give platform for discussing mankind's evolutionary strategy based on technologies of cybernetic immortality as well as the possible impact of such technologies on global society, politics and economies of the future.


Future prospects of "2045" Initiative for society


The emergence and widespread use of affordable android "avatars" controlled by a "brain-computer" interface. Coupled with related technologies “avatars’ will give people a number of new features: ability to work in dangerous environments, perform rescue operations, travel in extreme situations etc.
Avatar components will be used in medicine for the rehabilitation of fully or partially disabled patients giving them prosthetic limbs or recover lost senses.


Creation of an autonomous life-support system for the human brain linked to a robot, ‘avatar’, will save people whose body is completely worn out or irreversibly damaged. Any patient with an intact brain will be able to return to a fully functioning  bodily life. Such technologies will  greatly enlarge  the possibility of hybrid bio-electronic devices, thus creating a new IT revolution and will make  all  kinds of superimpositions of electronic and biological systems possible.


Creation of a computer model of the brain and human consciousness  with the subsequent development of means to transfer individual consciousness  onto an artificial carrier. This development will profoundly change the world, it will not only give everyone the possibility of  cybernetic immortality but will also create a friendly artificial intelligence,  expand human capabilities  and provide opportunities for ordinary people to restore or modify their own brain multiple times.  The final result  at this stage can be a real revolution in the understanding of human nature that will completely change the human and technical prospects for humanity.


This is the time when substance-independent minds will receive new bodies with capacities far exceeding those of ordinary humans. A new era for humanity will arrive!  Changes will occur in all spheres of human activity – energy generation, transportation, politics, medicine, psychology, sciences, and so on.

Today it is hard to imagine a future when bodies consisting of nanorobots  will become affordable  and capable of taking any form. It is also hard to imagine body holograms featuring controlled matter. One thing is clear however:  humanity, for the first time in its history, will make a fully managed evolutionary transition and eventually become a new species. Moreover,  prerequisites for a large-scale  expansion into outer space will be created as well.
