All the winning entries are displayed online at www.wolda.org and will be published towards the end of September 2010 in the '09 annual, a substantial hard-bound volume of exceptional quality printed on SAPPI acclaimed papers by FONTEGRAFICA.

Wolda also launches its next edition - Wolda '10 - and continues to evolve and improve with a brand new judging process that again breaks new ground: every participant has a say in deciding the winning entries!

The judging mechanism has changed, yet remains revolutionary in its concept. The winning logos will be selected by every participating designer, using a dedicated part of the website that has been carefully designed to prevent bias. This way, the winning logos will truly represent the thinking of the worldwide logo design community, given that all participants are themselves, by definition, logo designers.

Subscription fee now only € 21 per logo! The set of outstanding logos selected by this process will be presented in a free online showcase, creating an e-archive that tracks the evolution of tastes, styles and trends in global design, year after year. Starting with Wolda '10, Wolda will be online only, eliminating the cost of producing expensive printed annuals. This makes it possible to reduce the entry fee to an extremely accessible rate, with the goal of increasing participation and allowing Wolda to become a truly faithful representation of logo design excellence worldwide. Designers, studios, agencies and students worldwide are invited to participate in Wolda '10, now open for entries.

Wolda is made possible by the 100+ associations and schools that endorse it, and also by the prestigious media partners who support and publicise Wolda around the world: 2+3D, abcDesign, ArabAd, Design 360°, DESIGN DUMP, DESIGN MAGAZINE, DEXIGNER, DIGITAL THREAD, ÉTAPES: INTERNATIONAL, FWA, GRAFIK TASARIM, IDENTITY, IdN, KAK, KLIK, NETDIVER, NEW WEB PICK, NOVUM, PACKAGE AND DESIGN, TAXI, TYPO, VISION UNION AND ZUPI.
