A diverse panel of jurors, led by renowned professionals from various parts of the world, has selected the finalists across the five competition sections: One-Channel Drum, Omni-Channel Drum, Craft Drum, Creative Business Excellence Drum, Creative Media Excellence Drum, and a special All Juries Section.
The Young Drummers Competition Jury has specifically chosen finalists from creative solutions in poster/poster series formats submitted by participants from all around the world.
Miha Bevc and Špela Levičnik Oblak, Competition Directors, shared their reflections: “Golden Drum again brought together an amazing group of international professionals with different backgrounds to judge this year's entries. With an increase in the number of entries, the jury members had a hard job to do. During the judging sessions we have heard in depth discussions that resulted in awarding the best work in the region. The jury members left inspired, not only by the work, but also by each other’s diverse perspective on the creative solutions seen competing.
Golden Drum has again confirmed its position as one of the seven regional festivals in the world included on the WARC ranking – meaningful creativity that drives our business and outstanding quality of work. A big thank you to all our jury members and a huge congratulations to all that made it onto the shortlists. We are looking forward to finding out which works and ideas behind them are going to become the benchmark for excellence in creativity for the year to come. Let’s celebrate the region’s best work at the Golden Drum Awards Show on 10 October. See you in Portorož, Slovenia.”
