The Warsaw Voice is among the winners of the GrandFront competition for the best newspaper and magazine front page of the year. The Warsaw Voice received the gold medal in the opinion-shaping magazines section of the competition for the second time. It won for the cover of its last issue of 2007, designed by Rafał Poławski, marking the Voice's 1,000th issue. The medal was previously won by the Voice's graphic designer Magdalena Jonas for a cover in 2005.

A ceremonial gala to mark the end of this year's GrandFront, the sixth time the competition has been held, took place at the Royal Castle in Warsaw on April 24.

The event, organized by the Chamber of Press Publishers, was held under the patronage of culture and heritage minister Bogdan Zdrojewski. The contest is a vehicle for showcasing the best annual achievements in graphic design by the press and to highlight the most creative, clever and professional works.

A total of 375 entries battled it out for the main prizes. As well as national papers with a big circulation, many local and specialist publications submitted work. The judges were 29 graphic artists, including fine arts lecturers, photographers and publishers.

The gold medal award won by The Warsaw Voice was designed by Hanna Jelonek.

"It is a pleasant surprise that a cover with a sparing graphic design, based on a synthetic concept, can hold its own against illustrations confined to the literal and drenched in color and special effects. It is heartening to see that pure forms that are conveyed in a simple manner are appreciated in this day and age of cheap Photoshop effects and commercial glitter where better seems to mean more bizarre." (Rafał Poławski)
