The achievements presented by the cities for the review competition are considered by the expert group of the Competition Commission on the quality and effectiveness of decisions, social and economic effect, as well as the possibility of their implementation in other regions.

The peculiarity of this competition is that it is ideologically and organizationally focused on identifying specific examples of solving urban problems, taking into account local conditions, characteristics and assessing the achievement from the standpoint of what the city actually managed to do to improve the comfort and life quality of citizens.

Competition diplomas were also awarded to projects and initiatives of St. Petersburg in the field of improvement, culture, art, education.

The winning works will be included in the "Library of Urban Practices" and recommended for implementation in the cities of the CIS and the EAEU.
