Wolda 2010 – The Worldwide Logo Design Annual

Wolda is the high-profile graphic design award scheme that rewards the best logos and trademarks designed throughout the world, creating an archive that tracks the evolution of tastes, styles and trends in global design, year after year.

Wolda’s standing is guaranteed by the endorsement of the most important design associations and schools. Designers, agencies, studios and students from all over the world are invited to enter.

With its ’10 edition, Wolda continues to evolve and improve, with a brand new judging process that again breaks new ground: each participant has a say in deciding the winning entries.

Objective

Submit your best logo designs produced in 2010.

Please upload logo images according to the following specifications:

  • 72 dpi resolution
  • Logo must be included in a frame sized 300×300 pixels
  • JPG format in RGB colour
  • Files should not exceed 1 MB

Prizes

The overall winner “Best of the World” for Wolda Professional and Wolda Talent is rewarded for free with prestigious design objects created specially for Wolda: two pieces of the “Best of the World” trophy and two pieces of the award certificate (one for the agency and one for the logo’s client).

The rest of the winning entries can receive award trophies and certificates ONLY upon request and payment.

Wolda awards are true symbols of creative achievement. They’re not easy to come by, either. Earning a Wolda award is a true accomplishment. Even the simple certificates represent something worth hanging on the wall rather than just a sheet of paper to file away.
