Weltformat Graphic Design Festival is again looking for the most exciting newcomer poster designers – this year celebrating the festival’s 10th jubilee! We 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 2018. After the exhibition, the winning poster will be shown at 500 locations throughout Switzerland and awarded CHF 1500.

Now What?!

Turning points – moments of uncertainty, triggered by incisive events and formative experiences. Turning points– whether on a political, socio-cultural or personal level – feel like a vacuum, like the start of a journey with an uncertain outcome. They ask for decisions, a turnaround, a change of direction or maybe just a swerve? As harbingers of a new era, they are signs of profound change. We are looking for your visual interpretation of turning points; this moment of maximal tension, just before everything changes.

Award ceremony is taking place on the 29th of September at Neubad!

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 29th to October 7th, 2018. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony taking place during the festival opening on September 29th at Neubad, Lucerne.
