A design contest on the traditional agricultural calendar unleashed the artistic talent of young people. China Daily reports.

According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the Autumnal Equinox (qiufen) is the day when night and day are of equal length.

After that day, the location of direct sunlight moves to the south, making the days shorter and nights longer in the northern hemisphere.

Part of the cultural heritage of China, the 24 Solar Terms embody Chinese people's experience and knowledge of astronomy, phenology and agricultural meteorology.

The 24 Solar Terms was included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists in November.

On this year's qiufen, which fell on Sept 23, the awards ceremony for the Logo Design Contest for China's 24 Solar Terms was held in the capital as part of this year's Beijing Design Week.

The contest was open to both professionals and juveniles, and 1,520 design works from 97 primary schools and 125 communities in Beijing were received in the juvenile group, of which dozens won awards of best design and most creative, and 60 finalists were shortlisted.
