UnShow 2013: Calling for Unbelievably Good Work

Written by in News

 

 

Double Negation is a Beautiful Thing

The ironically titled, cleverly assembled, popularly acclaimed, professionally judged UnShow™  is back — and we are very, very, very un-unexcited about the work we are about to receive.

For the second consecutive year Neenah Paper will recognize some of the world’s best work on uncoated paper with the 2013 Neenah UnShow™,  a competition supported by HOW Magazine  that welcomes original artwork printed on any brand of uncoated paper created by designers and printers from all over the world.  Judges Jessica Hische, Bryn Mooth and Aaron Draplin will rate work based on originality, technical excellence, composition, overall impact and artistic merit.

One image will be named the “Best in Show” grand-prize winner and two images per category will be named winners. All winning printed objects will published in HOW Magazine. Category winners receive $500 and the grand-prize winner receives $1,000 as well as registration for HOW Design Live 2013, the famed  multi-faceted design conference held this year in San Francisco June 22-26, 2013.

“Last year it was great to see the volume and quality of interesting work submitted on uncoated paper,” said Tom Wright, senior director of advertising and design for Neenah Paper. “We are certain this year’s contest will bring greater surprises and expose even more designers and printers of exceptional talent, vision and industry.”
