29th International posters Competition
The international poster competition of Chaumont was launched in 1990 in order to value poster design on an international scale. The posters sent in by the designers for the competition are at the origin of a collection that now includes more than 45 000 pieces conserved in Chaumont.
The quality of the contemporary poster collections of Chaumont, associated with a collection of illustrated posters from the late 19th century and the vitality of the 28 editions of an annual festival, which has become Biennale, have allowed for the creation of a permanent venue in Chaumont entirely dedicated to graphic design : le Signe, centre national du graphisme, that opened its doors in October 2016.
The presentation of the Chaumont International Poster Competition will take place in 2021 during the 3rd Biennale internationale de design graphique organized by le Signe, centre national du graphisme from 27 May to 26 September 2021.
The International Poster Competition is intended for all professionals, independent or employee, working for the public or private sector, regardless of their age or nationality.
The posters must have been commissioned or have lived in a real context (e.g. a demonstration). Considering screens as a new medium for poster display, “animated posters” may be submitted to the appreciation of the jury under the condition that they have been commissioned.
