Entries are now invited for the Weltformat Newcomer Award 2020. The Weltformat Graphic Design Festival is again looking for the most exciting newcomer poster designers.
They look forward to your submission – everyone younger than 27, whether student, intern, or at the start of their career, can participate. The twenty best projects will be presented in an exhibition during Weltformat Graphic Design Festival 2020.
The subject for the 2020 Award is Still Going Strong.
In recent months we have all been confronted with changes, limitations, and cancellations. However, the relevance and power of design remain undiminished. Why is a graphic design and the visibility of it so important – especially in times of uncertainty? Show that you are still here despite – or perhaps because of – extraordinary circumstances. Let the world know: You are still going strong.
After the exhibition, the winning poster will be shown at 500 locations throughout Switzerland and awarded CHF 1,500.
- Open to poster designers from around the world;
- Applicants should be younger than 27;
- A maximum of three entries per person is permitted;
- Already published works and plagiarisms are excluded from participation.
After the closing date, a jury consisting of poster designers and a representative of APG|SGA will select twenty posters from all entries that will be shown during Weltformat Graphic Design Festival in Lucerne from September 26 to October 4, 2020. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony taking place during the festival opening on September 26 at Neubad, Lucerne.
