Joseph Binder Award

The Joseph Binder Award is an international competition with a focus on graphic design and illustration that is held every two years. Participation is open to professional graphic designers and illustrators and to design students from all over the world. They may enter projects in the fields of graphic design, illustration, and Design Fiction.

The Joseph Binder Award was first launched by designaustria in 1996 and named after one of the most outstanding graphic designers and illustrators active in Austria between the two World Wars, and who subsequently also revolutionised visual communication in the United States.

The submissions are assessed by an international jury of experts. Previous jury panels included such recognised authorities as Cordula Alessandri, Lo Breier, Gerd Dumbar, Fons Hickmann, Freda Sack, Stefan Sagmeister, Niklaus Troxler, and Lars Müller.
