The chapter dividers in all catalogues are typographic phrases or quotes on music. Images of music stands were used for the 2009 catalogues. Each music stand contains a different message or image. They are also used as a metaphor of the competition itself. The ‘story’ starts on the cover, with an image of closed music stands representing a closed competition. The first music stands opens as you open the catalogue, on the first page, introducing honorary members of the competition. These are photographed with a green background of leaves symbolising people ‘outside’ the competition. The stands then introduce the members of the Jury, and the following music quotes are used as chapter dividers. Photographs by Nacho Alegre. See also Identities, Posters, Print
