International winners announced in ‘Ten Images for Ithaca’ 2010

The winners of this year’s Ten Images for Ithaca Competition have been announced. The theme was ‘Labels’ and 1728 posters were submitted from designers working all over the world (including Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Brazil, China, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, the United States and Greece).

From these, 142 were put forward to the jury: Greek graphic designers Dimitris Gkazis (busybuilding) and Kostas Kalogirou (Red Creative), graffiti artist Alexander Vasmoulakis, French designer Ruedi Baur, designer and type designer Andrea Tinnes (see ‘Typeface / interface’ in Eye 64) from Germany, award-winning designer Luba Lukova (Bulgaria / US) and poster collector Rene Wanner from Switzerland.

An exhibition of the ten winning images (and the other 132 finalists) will open on 17 July 2010 on the island of Ithaca. The award ceremony will take place on the same day. So, without further ado, here are 2010’s Ten Images for Ithaca:
