These catalogues—whether digital or in print—feature photographs of each selection as well as jurors' comments and extensive credits. Recent editions have also featured contextual essays for each section, jurors' work and biographies, and retrospectives of the AIGA Medalists. All the winning selections from the AIGA competitions can be found online in the AIGA Design Archives.
