As many as 268 applications from 22 countries were submitted to the contest. After long and stormy deliberations, the jurors selected 22 projects that stood a chance to win the prizes from the total pool of ~EUR 14.500. During this year's edition, the international jury was composed of: Agnieszka Jacobson-Cielecka (SofFU SWPS), Czesława Frejlich (Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków), Boaz Katz (Form Us With Love), Szymon Hanczar (Hanczar Studio), Luca Nichetto (Nichetto Studio), Agata Nowotny (among others, the Zasoby project), Mariusz Włodarczyk (Academy of Fine Arts in Łódź), Jerzy Porębski (Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw), Maurizio Burrato (INTERPRINT Polska) and Michał Piernikowski (Łódź Design Festival).
The works of all finalists were displayed at a unique exhibition as part of the 14th edition of the Łódź Design Festival. This year, the post-contest exhibition took a unique form — the objects were presented in specially arranged containers placed at the Monopolis.
