Call for Entries: Joseph Binder Award 2016

by Irene Jäger

The Joseph Binder Award (JBA) is Austria's only international competition for graphic design & illustration. Launched by designaustria in 1996, it is now being organised for the 13th time.

Designers, illustrators, and students from all over the world are invited to submit their works realised between 2014 and today. The entries will be assessed by an international jury in fifteen categories: Corporate Design, Communication Design, Information Design, Type Design, Poster Design, Editorial Design/Books, Editorial Design/Magazines, Packaging Design, Digital Media, Book Illustration, Media Illustration, Commercial Illustration, Digital Illustration, Illustration in Miscellaneous Applications, and Design Fiction.

In November 2016, trophies and cash prizes will be awarded to the best works, which will also be published in a catalogue and presented in an exhibition at designforum Wien.

"Everything is three-dimensional." The motto of this year's call for entries is borrowed from one of Joseph Binder's quotes, which inspired the graphic designers of the Viennese studio 100und1 in their design for the visual appearance of JBA16.

The deadline for entries is April 17, 2016. Early birds will benefit from reduced entry fees until February 29.
