Graphic Design Festival Scotland is calling for entry in its International Poster Competition for 2017, with the aim to showcase and celebrate contemporary poster design from around the world.
The brief is open and each participant may enter a total of three (3) posters — created specifically for the competition, for a client or as self promotion.
The three posters, most highly regarded by the jury, will be awarded a total of £900 in cash prizes.
The posters will be judged on their content, concept, and delivery, and value will be placed on design work which:
- Alters perceptions or ways of thinking
- Offers creative solutions to problems
- Contributes to discussion on current affairs
- Opens dialogue and provokes discussion for debate
- Makes innovative use of media or medium
The Graphic Design Festival Scotland International Poster Competition 2017 is open to both students and professionals worldwide.
Scheduled for 20-26 October, 2017 the Festival will exhibit a curated selection of submitted posters in Scotland’s National Centre for Design & Architecture, The Lighthouse between the 20th October – 25th November 2017.
