Jury Statement

This is how the Jury commented on their statement:

“The Jury’s selection aimed at accentuating projects that are formally daring, yet elaborate from the point of view of concept and craftsmanship. The highest concentration of these projects is related (unsurprisingly) to the field of culture (e.g. promotion of cultural events, festivals, the production of smaller publishers, independent magazines, art monographs, etc.). On the contrary, the representation of good quality projects from the commercial sphere was relatively low. There is also an apparent fluctuation of quality in comparing individual media. There is for instance an important representation of good quality poster work (reflecting a certain inertia of the profession, conditioned on the one side by the long-term profile of the Brno Biennial exhibition, and on the other by straightforward exhibition possibilities of the poster). The share of digital works, or – on a more general level – of projects that would identify themselves against traditional conventional formats and media, is rather secondary.”
