The 6th Beijing Cultural Creativity Competition was held on Monday, with 54 exceptional projects and 20 outstanding teams awarded. 

Liu Shaojian, director of the Beijing State-owned Cultural Assets Management Center, said the competition received 55,318 project submissions. The event was jointly organized by the Beijing State-owned Cultural Assets Management Center, relevant government departments, and the publicity departments of 16 districts in Beijing, as well as the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Area.

Fan Di'an, an expert consultant for the competition and dean of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, said the competition has become a cultural magnet for cultural and creative enterprises, cutting-edge cultural innovation products, as well as cultural parks, investment institutions, and entrepreneurial service organizations.

Beijing has been implementing national plans for cultural and digital development by adhering to a development philosophy of "science and technology empower culture, and culture empowers the city." The city has focused on building cultural industrial parks, promoting cultural integration, and encouraging innovative development.

In 2021, the output of Beijing's cultural industry reached 45.9 billion yuan, which accounted for 11% of the city's GDP, ranking first in China in this regard. In 2022, despite the impacts of the pandemic, Beijing's cultural industry achieved positive growth, generating a revenue of around 1.8 trillion yuan. This positive development illustrates the strong momentum of high-quality progress in the city's cultural industry, which also contributed to the success of the recently concluded cultural creativity competition.

The award-winning projects were selected for their relevance to current times, unique Beijing traits, and proficiency in integration and innovation.

To facilitate the swift commercialization of competition projects, the Beijing Cultural Resources Center will offer support through various measures, such as providing entrepreneurial services, connecting resources, offering policy support, and providing training programs.
