Vienna (Austria) - The international jury for the Joseph Binder Award 2010 has announced this year's finalists. The jury assessed 447 entries by 206 participants from 16 countries. 63 entries were shortlisted, 24 of which will be awarded trophies in gold (8), silver (7), and bronze (9); the remaining 39 entries will be honoured with distinction awards.

The jury was chaired by the great Dutch designer Gert Dumbar, who is an experienced and passionate teacher and mentor of the younger generation. He was assisted by art director and newspaper maker Lo Breier, and illustrator Olaf Hajek, a successful commuter between Germany and the United States.

Joining them was Susanne Breitfeld (BDG), Michaela Varin (SGD), and Jürgen Grothues (AGD), who supported the jury not only with their expertise as communication designers, but also with their knowledge gained during their involvement of many years in the national design associations of their countries, Germany and Switzerland.

Most entries came from Austria (245), Germany (152) and Switzerland (22); the rest of Europe was represented by submissions from Luxemburg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Great Britain, France, Spain, Hungary, Croatia and Ukraine. Entries from overseas came from India, China, South Korea and the United States.

The submitted entries were assigned to the individual categories as follows:
  • Corporate (63)
  • Communication (71)
  • Orientation and Signage (15)
  • Type (13)
  • Poster (65)
  • Editorial (117)
  • Packaging (38)
  • Illustration (23)
  • Design Fiction (42)

This last category was open for independent, non-commercial, and unrealised projects, so that most of its entries came from students.

All shortlisted and winning entries will be published in a catalogue, which can be ordered for EU €14.90 as from 10 November 2010 at:

The award winners will be announced during the award ceremony on 10 November 2010, 19:00.
