6th international poster contest 2021-Free theme – Pandemic – Vaccination

Free theme – Pandemic – Vaccination

The Museum of Typography by Giannis and Eleni Garedaki announces the 6th International Poster Contest, without a thematic restriction, giving designers the opportunity to express their interests and concerns through their poster, and highlighting the role of the poster as an imprint of every human activity. The pandemic and more recently the vaccination are the topics that have dominated our everyday life for the past year and a half, while other creative proposals are also welcome.

The poster should be accompanied by a short explanatory text that will explain its content and purpose. The invitation mainly concerns professionals and students of graphic and visual arts.

The 30 posters selected by the jury will receive honorary distinctions and the first three will receive significant cash prizes.

• 1,500 euros the first winner

• 1,000 euros the second winner

• 700 euros the third winner

These posters will be presented in an exhibition that will be hosted in the amphitheater of the Museum of Typography for a year, until the next competition.

The awarding of prizes and distinctions will take place on Saturday, October 30, 2021, in the amphitheater of the Museum of Typography, at the Small Industries Park of Chania, in Souda, Crete.

In the event that Covid 19 prevention conditions do not allow the event to take place on that date, it will be postponed until health conditions allow it.

The names of the jury will be announced soon.
