Entries must be entered by 15 March 2011. All competitors must register online. After receiving a special identification code they will be able to send their entries to the address of the competition organiser.

This year's jury chairman will be the well-known Czech package designer, Jan Činčera. The full jury will be announced by January 2011. Last year, the designer, architect and professor of the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, Jiří Pelcl, and the Austrian product designer Thomas Feichtner, were among the members of the jury.

Increased prizes are an attractive innovation this year. The winner of each category will receive EUR 1000. Event partners have prepared many awards to be given to the other competitors. A special prize by Slovak Design Center will also be given.
