We’ve just nailed down our international panel of judges for the ninth 3x3 professional show. As always we search for some of the top talent around the world to judge our show.
This year’s judges include Jordan Awan, Art Director, The New Yorker, Andrew J. Nilsen, Art Director, SF Weekly, Gary Cochran, Art Director, London Telegraph, United Kingdom and Shayne Pooley, Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather, Hong Kong. Our illustrator panel includes Brian Stauffer, Valeria Petrone, Italy, Rod Hunt, United Kingdom and Marco Wagner, Germany.
Categories this year include advertising, animation, books, editorial, editorial spots, fashion, gallery, graphic novels, institutional, medical, posters, sci-fi, self-promotion, sequential, three-dimensional and unpublished. Deadline for entries is March 9, 2012.
What sets 3x3 apart is that unlike many shows all judging is done independently on the each judge’s desktop which allows us to not only secure judges from all over the world but also to avoid any personal biases that tend to creep up when judges are assembled in the same room. Balloting is secret and once the judging sheets have been returned we tabulate the results. A majority of the judges must favor an entry for it to make it into the show; medals are decided based on the judge’s personal selections of top work as well as by the number of judges voting for an individual entry. We’re fortunate to have the only show that is truly international. We look forward to seeing your entries this year.
Our Call for Entries will be going out soon and we’ll be announcing our 3x3 International Student Show and 3x3 International Children’s Show judges in the next several weeks. Stay tuned.
