From the Result Announcement:
" The 1st Korea International Poster Biennale announced the result from the two days jury meeting that was held on Oct. 28 - 29. Out of a total of 1,874 submitted works from 44 countries, 292 posters were selected for the 1st Korea Poster Biennale, including 13 prize winning entries in professional and student sections. Israeli designer Lemel Yossi was honored the grand prize with his "Israel Palestine 2002." In the student section, "Schoner als du (Prettier than you) by Erich Brechbuhl from Switzerland won the first prize.
Mr. Shigeo Fukuda, chair of the jury, commented : When considering that it was the first competition, it was a wonder and pleasure to receive such a great number of submissions of high level from around the world. In the Public Campaign Poster category, many works dealt with the big social issues such as international conflicts, environment pollution, poverty and diseases. The Commercial Poster category had many works reflecting a global economic recession, while posters with unique cultural background were dominant in the Cultural Poster category."
