The Brumen Foundation is organising the 8th Brumen Biennial of Slovenian Design, an integral part of which is the Biennial exhibition and the award ceremony for the highest national awards in the field of design.
We are kindly inviting you to attend the gala event, which will take place at the National Gallery of Slovenia on 24 October 2017 at 7 p.m.
The president of the Brumen Foundation, Radovan Jenko, and the president of the Biennial, Ranko Novak, will present the Brumen awards to the recipients and open the exhibition. All awarded and exhibited works were selected by the international jury of the 8th Brumen Biennial.
We would like to thank all entrants for taking part in the 8th Brumen Biennial. Those entrants who have physical examples of their work are invited to either hand them in personally or send them by mail by 22 September at the latest.
There’s only a few days remaining to apply for your chance to win the highest awards in Slovenian design!
The Biennial is once again looking for excellent Slovenian design produced during the past two years. Entries are open up until September 11 2017, and we encourage all designers based in Slovenia to apply their best projects for consideration!
The biennial programme is set to start with the International Conference in Kino Šiška on October 3, where our international panel of judges will present their own significant achievements in design. Selected entries will be on display in the National Gallery of Slovenia from October 24. The recipients of the Brumen awards will be announced at the opening ceremony that same night.
