Second and third prize

third and second
Second prize, by anonymous: A perfectly composed bold and funny take on the issue. We (the jury) are weak for the anti-establishment expression. This must be Italian punk, dirty glamour and "can't help it must be elegant". Or is it maybe the expression of utmost decadence or neo-dada? We don't know, but we do know it's the future and that's what we asked for. An added value point for fitting very well in the line of previous Conditions covers. Third prize, by Elena X: Is this where competitions are taking us? The proposal charms the jury by catching the spirit of Venice, where more always is more. It falls from being a first prize winner on the point that it hasn't taken the probably astronomic print costs into consideration - and the proposal would loose it's essence if the design had to be reduced and "flattened". But still, a cover to remember!
