New York, NY – April 26, 2012 – Bigstock, one of the world’s leading royalty-free stock agencies, is proud to sponsor The Annual, Creative Review magazine’s major awards issue showcasing the best work in advertising, design and visual culture from the past year to be released in this week.
“We take great pride in the amazing photos, illustrations and vectors created by Bigstock contributors around the world, and it’s a privilege to support compelling visual work through this partnership with Creative Review,” said Ben Pfeifer, General Manager for Bigstock.
The Annual accepted entries until January this year, after which a panel of industry experts chose the projects that represent the best work of the year.
This year’s judges are Andy Altmann, Co-Founder, Why Not Associates; Violetta Boxill, Creative Director, Alexander Boxill; Nat Hunter, Design Director at RSA; Lisa Jelliffe, Senior Creative, Wieden + Kennedy London; Paul Jordan, Executive Creative Director, Dentsu London; Andre Laurentino, Executive Creative Director, TBWA\London; Greg Quinton, Creative Partner, The Partners; Andy Sandoz, Creative Partner, Work Club; Nick Turner, Executive Creative Director, AKQA; and Marina Willer, Partner at Pentagram.
Unlike other awards, The Annual does not divide work into categories – the winning work, as chosen by the judges, is displayed chronologically with projects of exceptional merit gaining additional exposure in the “Best in Book” section.
A UK publication, Creative Review and The Annual are available at premier art and design bookshops including Magma Books in the UK, and Barnes & Noble, St Mark’s Books, and Powell’s in the United States. Copies can also be ordered directly from email@example.com
