The main goal of the festival awards is to seek, present and award the most creative ideas in the field of public communication, created by young authors. The competition for the festival awards - Golden & Silver Bras and the big Magdalena award - is open to individuals of 30 years or less. An international jury selects winners in individual categories, awarded with Golden Bras, and the overall (Magdalena prize) winner based on the most creative idea. Entry fees are symbolical so that the competition is accessible to most young people all over the world.
Competition is usually open to all authors of 30 years or younger, but this year we will make an exception, and open the competition also for 31-year olds, because the festival did not happen last year and they couldn´t submit their works - so to all who were born later than 17. May 1981. If entry was created by more than one person, all the authors must have been born after this date. Each submission must be accompanied by a photocopy or scan of a legal document with clearly visible birth date for all authors in question. People in supporting roles (mentors, project managers, authors of music, etc.) are not subject to this rule. The Entry must be created to promote ideas, people, brands, products or services. Entries may have been commissioned or not, published or not, rejected by the client or designed specially for the festival. Actual publication or implementation of an idea is not required. Entries that were submitted to either of the previous Magdalena festivals can not take part in the competition. Entries of anonymous or unknown authors are not eligible. The organizer may use submitted entries for the promotion of the festival. The competition is open to authors worldwide. There are no limitations for personal participation to the festival.
Complete on-line submission forms, upload entries on-line or/and send them to the festival office (see technical instructions for each group). Send proof of age (photocopy or scan of the legal document) of all credited authors. Entries by authors, born after May 17, 1981 are eligible.
