Each year, over 500 entries are presented at the main festival exhibition. The creative solutions, entering the festival competition, are made and registered to the festival by young designers and creatives (up to 30 years of age) from all over the world. The international jury selects finalists, winners in individual categories and the winner of the festival who is awarded the main award - Magdalena. Lectures, workshops and round tables, covering a wide range of topics on graphic and industrial design, urbanism, video, photography, typography, advertising and other forms of responsible public communication are prepared each year and hosted by world’s top experts in the field. Magdalena is famous for its relaxed, creative atmosphere and a good choice of quality side programmes. Guests, visitors, sponsors and organisers socialise in the festival cyber coffee, browse around town for venues of accompanying exhibitions, DJ sets, workshops and other events and hang out at the evening events and parties. All of which are good opportunities for networking, exchanging views and experience and making new contacts with people from the business and vice versa, a chance for companies and studios to hunt for fresh blood.
