WINNERS, SHORTLIST AND STATS 2022
We would like to thank everybody for their submissions to Stereohype's 18th Annual Button Badge Design Competition.
This year we are once again pleased that so many previous winners and participants gladly accepted our invitation to become part of the jury panel. We love this about Stereohype as it helps build a little community – and a growing one with over 650 talents from around the world...
We were also over the moon to discover that our huge jury panel helped to get one of our persevering contributors over the line. One of this year's winners tried three times before and even made the shortlist in a previous year. Nothing we ever consider as part of our judging process but it just gets to show that enthusiasm and perseverance are key.
This is not the first time that happens so please do feel encouraged and try again next year, if you did not win. Winners are amazing but there is also a bit of luck and randomness involved. The stats say it all – our judges' favourites were all over the place – just the way we like it. Next thing you know lots of judges vote for an ape's butt and a uterus goddess. What's not to love?

A few words for runners-up, special mentions and participants:
