Rafaela Dražić awarded by Rookie Festival in Poland

place: Poland
Rafaela Dražić is the recipient of the Special m+Mention Award for her work „The Tale of Bodies, Souls and Machines – A Book for Two” at the contest for Artist's book during the Rookie Festival in Poland.

Dražić was awarded 'for its ori­gi­nal con­cept that enga­ges not one, but two readers at the same time, while main­ting its own ori­gi­nal design scheme.'

The ROOKIE con­test took place this year for the first time, welco­ming gra­phic desi­gners and arti­sts to sub­mit ori­gi­nal art­book pro­jects that were deli­be­ra­ted on by a jury of experts: Karolina Sikorska (vice-director of the Arsenał Municipal Gallery in Poznan), Jakub de Barbaro (book desi­gner, Goldex Poldex in Krakow), Daniel Muzyczuk (cura­tor of the Art Museum in Lodz), Piotr Rypson (vice-director of the National Museum in Warsaw) and Honza Zamojski (artist and foun­der of the Morava publi­shing house). The deci­sion was a dif­fi­cult one, with 80 sub­mis­sions to con­si­der.
