The poster festival Weltformat in Lucerne (Switzerland) is organising a student international poster competition.
This year’s theme is «Detours».
Designing a poster is rarely a straightforward, linear process. Ideas are sketched up, corrected, crossed out, developed further, and often rejected. Contents are twisted, morphed, reduced to their essence, and reworked again. We’re in search of visual meanderings, wanderings, detours and their results – we’re not interested in the express lane of the highway, but in the bumpier scenic route. Or maybe the real destination is the journey itself…
A maximum of three entries per person may be submitted.
Twenty posters will be shortlisted and unveiled at a special outdoor exhibition at the festival in Lucerne in September.
The winning poster will be awarded a prize of 1,500 CHF.
