Norway, here I come!
Very excited to go to Oslo to join the judging panel for the National Norwegian Graphic Design Awards (Visuelt), an annual ceremony which gives tribute to the professionals working with visual communication in Norway. Established in 1993, Visuelt has gradually grown to become the most important competition for designers and illustrators in Norway. They have also announced that the judging panel is 50/50 – great stuff!
I have been invited to be part of the Visuelt 2016 judging panel for the category Digital Design. The group consists of four Norwegian and myself. And we have an important role in selecting the awarded projects and in contributing to set the standards for the Norwegian Design scene.
Visuelt (grafill.no/visuelt) is an annual event for the creative industry in Norway and is a main arena for inspiration, exchange, learning and networking. Visuelt is organized by Grafill, the Norwegian Association for Design and Illustration.
The jury members from all categories meet at Grafill premises in Oslo, for 3 full days of intense discussions judging 6-700 entries. The winners will be announced at the award ceremony in Oslo on the 3rd of June.
Here are some Digital Design winners from last year: http://www.grafill.no/visuelt/vinnere/2015/digital-design/
And here are some of my personal favourites from the winners overall:
Norwegian students in the fields of graphic design, illustration, animation and digital design are invited to enter the Visuelt competition 2016. Be aware that gold winners in the student categories receive in addition to glory a grant of 10 000 NOK!
Visuelt recognise and celebrate the best of design and visual communication today. Student has recent years distinguished themselves alongside the professionals for their creative capasity and solid craftmanship. We want to see more!
The competition is open to Norwegian professionals and students home and abroad. And also for foreigners living and working in Norway. Student application fee 100 NOK.
