The Expert Committee of the Competition has carefully studied and evaluated the works and selected the best. The finalists in this nomination are: Tatiana Skibo, Ekaterina Novitskaya, Maria Kutai, Maria Ilyina, Sergo Popov and Tatyana Kosareva. As soon as these gardens are installed, they are going to be evaluated by the international professional Jury of the Competition in order to determine the winner.

In addition, the experts have recommended two more projects for implementation out of competition: one made by Svetlana Gorbatova and Inessa Kaushakite and the other by the joint team of landscape designers consisting of Elena Zaikova, Ksenia Ryzhova and Alexander Moroz. Even though those projects were not included in the list of finalists, the members of the Expert Committee had particularly noted the high level of the works and some potentially interesting suggestions for the city public spaces.

The decision on making this additional professional nomination Urban Place for Rest was made by the Organizing Committee because of the high interest from the landscape design professionals and the high quality of the works submitted for the Competition.
