Deadline: July 31, 2020
Applications are open for the Weltformat Newcomer Award 2020. 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.
With Not (Yet) Cancelled, this year’s Weltformat Graphic Design Festival investigates the effects of change and transformation on design. Dynamics, upheaval, movement: The festival discusses challenges related to constant change and exceptional circumstances but especially the potential and opportunities that come along with it.
In recent months we have all been confronted with changes, limitations and cancellations. However, the relevance and power of design remain undiminished. Why is 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.
