Milan (Italy) - The 2009 edition of Wolda, the Worldwide Logo Design Annual, has been endorsed by Icograda. Wolda is the high-profile graphic design award scheme that rewards the best logos and trademarks designed throughout the world, creating an archive that tracks the evolution of tastes, styles and trends in global design, year after year. Wolda's standing is guaranteed by the endorsement of many of the most important design associations: Wolda is the only awards scheme in the world endorsed by more than 100 design associations and schools.

Wolda '09 is now open for entries. Graphic designers, studios, agencies and students worldwide are invited to participate online: www.wolda.org

Wolda '09 is built on the same unique formula that guaranteed the success of last year's inaugural edition, with some new features:
  • it collects logos designed in both 2008 and 2009
  • the entry fee includes a copy of the Wolda '09 printed annual free of charge (delivery costs inclusive) for each participant.
  • logo submissions will be held in two separate deadlines: 30 June 2009 for logos designed in 2008 and 31 January 2010 for logos designed in 2009

The winning entries will be selected by an innovative three-tier jury comprising 10 top designers, 10 marketing managers from major international clients and finally 10 members of the public, representing the ultimate target market of consumers, selected by Icograda, AQUENT and CONSUMERS INTERNATIONAL respectively. The results of this selection process will be published in the Wolda '09 annual, a hard-bound volume of exceptional quality printed by FONTEGRAFICA on SAPPI acclaimed papers.
