Some pictures from the award ceremony at the Mundaneum in Mons

Mundaneum Mons The Mundaneum building is a three stories high giant card file cabinet with the walls completetly covered with wooden card boxes. I opened a few, and they are all packed with file cards, an estimated total of about 20 Millions of them. This corresponds to a storage capacity of about 1 Gigabyte, the same amount of memory that I have in my digital camera. Mundaneum Mons Alejandro Magallanes and jury member Alain Le Quernec

Mundaneum Mons Adela Vorbova from Prague, a student of Karel Misek who also spent two years at the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw with Lech Majewski. Adela told me that her winning poster was the first she ever sent to a competition, and also that she saw the "Call for entries" for Mons on the Poster Page. Mundaneum Mons Teresa Sdralevich, one of the top young belgian graphic designers, and Leonel Sagahon Campero, in front of Teresa's poster "Western Europe". Leonel is a partner with Alejandro Magallanes in the mexican design group "La maquina del tiempo", and made the winning poster to welcome the Zapatistas on their march to Mexico City on March 11, 2002.

Mundaneum Mons Marianne Blairon, jury member and winner of the first prize at the 8. Mons Triennial 2001 Mundaneum Mons and her husband Jean Pierre Scouflaire, jury member, painter, sculptor and poster designer.

The prize winners gave a presentation of their work on October 15, but this was a closely guarded secret and only a handful of people turned up for these world class talks, what a shame. I am grateful to jury member Marianne Jobst, curator of the poster collection of the Austrian National Library in Vienna, for alerting me to this event at the last minute.
