Jury for The Publishing Prize 2017
The jury consists of active communicators, who examine, evaluate and compare the entries.
For a message to get across, so much more than good design is required. That’s why the Publishing Prize jury also evaluates textual content, visual content, and – depending on the type of entry – direction (for films), physical execution (for print) and usability (for websites).
