"We receive so much interest every year it is really difficult to pare it down to 10-12 individuals."
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) June 2, 2010
Creativity International Awards opens the 40th Print & Packaging Competition with announcement of this year's international jury.
"Each year the judging panel gets better and better - they are coming from all over the globe," says Kathleen Ritchie, Marketing Director for the awards. "We receive so much interest every year it is really difficult to pare it down to 10-12 individuals."
Judges spend 3 days reviewing thousands of entries to the annual design & advertising competition. Judges will be looking at entries that range from print items such as posters, logos and direct mail to illustrations, photography and product packaging. The complete listing of Creativity Print & Packaging categories can be found here.
In addition, the jury will be reviewing student entries from some of the top graphic design programs and schools in the world. Kathleen says, "What looks better on the resume of a design student than "award winner" and "published"? Winning in Creativity gives them an advantage over other job seekers in the design field fresh out of college."

Brent Almond - DesignNut, Washington DC, USA
