We are pleased that our show chair James Yang has put together a very impressive jury for our three shows. More art directors than any show to date, and more than most other shows. And we’ve searched new parts of the globe for art directors with perhaps a different viewpoint—art directors from Colombia and Brazil and illustrators from Hong Kong, Austria and Spain.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be introducing each judge along with their bio and what they’re looking for in a winning entry. Rest assured the judging will be tough as always and since there are no quotas only the best will get in.
Judges for the 3x3 Professional Show are Ken DeLago, Art Director Golf Digest; Grace Lee, Art Director Priest+Grace; Irene Gallo, Art Director Tor Books; Lucho Correa, Art Director/Graphic Designer (Colombia); Kiko Farkas, Art Director (Brazil). And illustrators Jing Wei, Brian Rea and Veronica Grech (Spain).
Our 3x3 Picture Show judges are Paul Buckley, Art Director Penguin; Hendrik Helligel, Editor Gestalten Verlag (Germany); Isabelle De Cat, Art Director Penguin (United Kingdom); Ben Newman, illustrator (United Kingdom) and Maria Carluccio.
3x3 Student Show judges include Catherine Gilmore-Barnes, Art Director New York Times Book Review and illustrator/educators Aya Kakeda, Ian Whadcock (United Kingdom), Jonathan Jay Lee (Hong Kong) and Peter Diamond (Austria).
Entry deadline is March 25, late deadline is April 1, 2016.
