Now that the door has closed on submissions, we're delighted to introduce the panel tasked with shaping the 2010—13 archive entries. In identifying this panel we wanted to provide a range of perspectives from proven and balanced advocates of design. After seeing the amount of great work that's been submitted over the year, and particularly the last week, we don't envy their task, and wish them the best of luck.
