Shortlist (roughly in alphabetical order)

This time we had 344 accepted entries from 136 international individuals/studios/collectives!

The 32 judges had to select their three favourite single badges and three favourite sets of three. Between the judges – and let's not forget that we were only after a total of 20 potentially winning designs – a whopping 166 designs did score points! But in the end it was once again the usual head to head race and every single vote counted. Hopefully we did not have any ties in the top positions and the winners could be allocated without flipping coins.

Stereohype would like to thank everybody for their submissions! It has once again been a tough decision for the entire judging panel. This year's winners are from Canada, Chile, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, United Kingdom and Venezuela.

The winners are:
1st prize (single badge): Sebastian Stamm aka The Stamm
1st prize (set of 3): Shen Plum
2nd prize (single badge): Jim Whittamore
2nd prize (set of 3): Ratko Gregor Jagodic @ Kiosk
3rd prize (single badge): Sarah Boris
3rd prize (set of 3): Impactolaser
4th prize (single badge): Mathieu Hubert
4th prize (set of 3): Pascal Cuttoli aka Royal Glamsters
Special Stereohype Prize (single badge): Monika Mitkute
Special Stereohype Prize (set of 3): María Eugenia Pérez de Arce

(prizes)

Congratulations also to all the runners-up who made it into the shortlist of 60! The 20 winning badges are now available for purchase. The others have not been produced by us but will stay online to give credit to everybody who made it into the shortlist.

In addition to everybody on the shortlist we also feel we should mention a few outstanding designs that we would also have liked to produce. Unfortunately they did not score enough points this time but all of them got at least two votes each (some even got the full three points by one of the judges). A big hands down for (in no particular order): Arnold Floeck, Ilustraio, Will Scobie, Caroline Pratt, Anjoli Dey, George Pollard, Christian Gross, Marivic Balleza, Dorota Hauswirt, The Thoughtful Six, Julia Szabadics, Charlene Lam, Christina Nitschke, Davy Provo, Sean Pendleton,...

And last but not least a big THANK YOU goes once again to the nice people from the judging panel who helped us so much!
