Newcomer Award 22

Weltformat Graphic Design Festival is again looking for the most exciting newcomer poster designers!

We look forward to your submission – everyone younger than 30, 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 2022. After the exhibition, the winning poster will be shown at 500 locations throughout Switzerland as part of a poster display worth CHF 30,000 made possible by APG|SGA. In addition to the jury prize, an audience award will be presented. The public can choose its favourite from the twenty nominated posters in an online voting process. The designers of the winning poster will receive a voucher worth $500 provided by Grilli Type.

Theme: "Speed"

Break the boundaries of space and time! We are looking for the poster that, despite its static, non-animated form, manages to pick up speed, communicate movement and simulate rushing speed. No matter whether in terms of content, form or even both – speed up!

Upload your poster as a JPG file (150 dpi, DIN A3 (297x420mm), not larger than 3 MB) by August 5th, 2022, to our community area. A maximum of three entries per person is permitted. Already published works and plagiarisms are excluded from participation. The twenty nominated posters will be printed in F4 format (895x1280 mm).

After the closing date, a jury consisting of poster designers will select twenty posters from all entries that will be shown during Weltformat Graphic Design Festival in Lucerne from October 8th to October 16th, 2022. The winner will be announced at the award ceremony taking place during the festival opening on October 8th.
