leadawardsLast night saw the opening of the exhibition accompanying the annual Lead Awards at the grand Deichtorhallen in Germany’s media capital Hamburg, evaluating the best of German editorial design, photography and advertising. The refreshing aspect of the Lead Awards is that, unlike with other design awards, one cannot enter the competition with usually fairly hefty fees attached: the Lead Awards normally scan the German magazine market and choose whatever their team of jurors feel is relevant and outstanding at any given point in time. So it was a particular pleasure for us to find out that mono.kultur has been nominated in the category Magazine of the Year – we feel a little like the small kid that’s allowed to sit at the adults’ table. The winners will be announced on March 25, but in the meantime the exhibition is more than worth seeing, presenting quite an impressive overview of a media landscape that’s surprisingly fresh and alive.
