We want to see a wide range of participants in the competition this year. I hope that the works show desire to make a positive change. It is important to understand our opportunity to positively influence our environment, lets use the opportunity well – with a twinkle in the corner of the eye.
Creative Concept, Art Director
I hope to see entries that charm with originality and skill. Entries that don't just cover the brand, but find something interesting at its core.
Senior Creative, Art Director

I'm hoping for publications where the appearance and content support each other insightfully and create a whole that stands out from the crowd and speaks volumes. I also hope to see bold experiments, inventive use of technical solutions and finished implementations.
Dept. of Music, Art & Culture, Uni of Jyväskylä
In the entries, I want to see relaxed and bold interpretations of adding joy to our lives in different ways. Joy is a life-sustaining force and its effects e.g. to well-being and the interaction are startling. Joy can sometimes disappear from life without noticing, then its significance is often only realized.

In the new Experimental-series, I hope to see entries that have touched users. I hope it means more than just activity trackers – for example, I would like to see more B2B services.

An image is a powerful form of expression and says more than a thousand words. It is an honor to be able to see the best of images. I expect images that stop, surprise and move.

The time of touching manifesto films is over, declared Bruno Bertelli, man of 143 lions, in Cannes. Instead of manifestos, I hope to see stories that cause a spontaneous burst of laughter or give you goosebumps.

In the Design-series, I expect to see entries that surprise both conceptually and visually. I hope to see entries whose meaning is deeper than the surface and the motivation roots from creating a better tomorrow.

We can’t concentrate any more, so we need words that go down like a cool drink of water. I’m looking forward to work that makes complex things clear.

We are looking for a sound that sinks deep between our ears and resonates all the way to the heart. It doesn't matter if it's done with artificial intelligence or a tape recorder.
