During this year's most important national overview of visual communications, hosted as always by the National Gallery of Slovenia, the Brumen Foundation presents 249 best works in the field of design created in the last two years.
The purpose of the Biennial of Slovene Visual Communications is to strengthen the awareness of importance of high quality products and service design - for everyday users as well as for students and experts in the field of design and other creative industries, especially in the business-economic world.
The two year cycle starts with the invitation to tender - a call for the designers to apply with their works. The review of the submitted works and the selection of the best for the exhibition follow. The primary selection is carried out by the international commission over the internet and the secondary one in person; at the exhibition the jury reviews the works and presents the highest professional acknowledgments: the Brumen Awards.
The jury gives one award per category, while the work that meets all the criteria of international excellency of visual communication receives the most prestigious one: the Brumen Grand Prix for the best visual message of Slovenia.
The members of the international jury, renowned names of global design, do not only judge but also present themselves as lecturers and creators during the accompanying International Design Event.
Solemn opening of the exhibition and award ceremony: 22 October 2013 at 7 p.m.
