This is a Central European review of graduation projects (Master’s and Bachelor’s) in graphic design (2D) and industrial design (3D) in their broadest definitions – including web pages, APS, screen applications and functional interactive design, fabric, clothing, glass, and ceramics, excluding one-of-a-kind works – organized in the framework of the “G4” European Design Review.
The review is not a competition, it is a selection by Zamek Cieszyn (PL) and the editors of 2+3D (PL) and Typo (CZ) magazines, international design institutions: CZECHDESIGN (CZ), Hungarian Design Council (HU), Slovak Design Centre (SK), Articsók Stúdió (HU), and the 1977 organization (SK), hereinafter referred to as “the organizers.”
Graduation projects (Master’s and Bachelor’s) defended between 1 December 2016 and 31 October 2017 qualify for the review.
Only the graduation projects defended in schools of the Visegrad Group countries or by citizens of Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary studying abroad may be submitted for the review.
Projects are submitted for the review by the designers, or, in the case of group projects, by the design teams.
The projects should be submitted by 31 October 2017.
The basis for submitting a work to the review is filling in the form available at www.graduationprojects.eu, including a maximum of 10 illustrations in jpg files, saved in display resolution (not more than 1600 × 1200 pixels [h/w] in RGB colors) and a description of the work (max. 2000 symbols). The description can include links to films or web pages presenting the designs.
The designers give their consent to the unpaid publication of the submitted materials and their presentation at exhibitions, and to the processing and use of their personal data for the publication, promotion, and execution of the exhibition.
The review’s qualifying commission will consist of representatives of all the organizers.
The selected works will be presented at an exhibition organized by Zamek Cieszyn in January 2018, in a catalogue, and on the review’s web page (www.graduationprojects.eu). If the organizers receive additional financial support, exhibitions will be organized abroad during selected design festivals.
The number of works marked for publication and for exhibition will be settled by the qualifying commission.
The organizers will inform the participants about the commission’s verdict by e-mail and on the web page of the review, no later than on 9 January 2018.
The organizers will settle the deadlines and the manner of preparing the selected works for publication and possible exhibition with the designers via e-mail or telephone.
For all matters not covered by the regulations, the review organizers’ voice is conclusive.
For all matters associated with the review, contact should be made via e-mail, in Polish or in English, with the review commissioner, Wojciech Kubiena (firstname.lastname@example.org).
