Over 200 of the most respected artists from around the world were invited to evaluate the works. They will be judged in the categories of art and design: visual communication, film, fashion, textiles, interiors, architecture, visual arts, contemporary crafts, industrial and product design and more.

Among them were Michał Piernikowski and Aleksandra Kietla from our Łódź Design Festival team.

Last year, the winner of the audience vote was the project by Julia Jaworska, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, “Green and cream jars”.
