The exhibition 100 Best Posters presents the most exciting posters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The winners have been selected from a competition and represent the creative exploration of the poster as a medium and the versatile work of the graphic design scene from German-speaking countries.

The competition 100 Best Posters of the Year was launched in the 1960s. The aim was – and still is – to present and promote posters from German-speaking countries. Entries may be submitted from all areas; commissioned works, student projects, product advertisements, cultural posters or political and socially critical designs. The winning posters are presented – without ranking – in a travelling exhibition and a yearbook.

The one hundred best entries are selected by a jury of renowned graphic designers and poster theorists. This year's jury consisted of Christian Hoffelner (A-Vienna), Larissa Kasper, Kasper-Florio (CH-St.Gallen), Denis Olgac, Sucuk und Bratwurst (D-Berlin), Radovan Jenko (SI-Ljubljana) and Susanne Strahl, Strahl R (D-Berlin). From 2.008 submissions by 540 designers, the jury reviewed 362 posters from 227 submitters – including 259 posters and 103 series – after an online pre-selection. This year, the one hundred award-winning posters and poster series are divided by category into 78 commissioned works, 19 student projects and 3 personal commissions and were submitted by designers from Switzerland (54), Germany (39) and Austria (seven).

The competition and the touring exhibition have established themselves as a well-known institution and are appreciated by designers and studios as well as by students and advertising agencies.

The 100 winning posters can be found here.
