The 100 beste Plakate exhibition, organised annually by the 100 beste Plakate e.V. Association, features a selection of the best posters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2021.
Opening event: 05.09.2023, 18:00-22:00
The selected posters embody a stylistic variety of poster design from German-speaking countries and are made by both professional designers and students at the beginning of their careers. The annual 100 beste Plakate e.V. competition for the 100 best posters has already been held 20 times internationally and is a prestigious event and an institution whose evaluation is of great significance for the career of a poster designer.
Hundreds of graphic designers, graphic design students from art universities and technical colleges, agencies, studios, commissions as well as print shops enter the competition every year.
The 2021 selection includes 100 best posters from Germany (39), Switzerland (54) and Austria (7). The posters were selected and judged by an international jury of experts: Christian Hoffelner (A-Vienna), Larissa Kasper (Kasper-Florio, CH-St.Gallen), Denis Olgac, (Sucuk und Bratwurst, D-Berlin), Radovan Jenko (SI-Ljubljana) and Susanne Stahl (Stahl R, D-Berlin). A total of 540 artists participated in the competition with a total of 2008 posters.
The exhibition will be presented in September in Timisoara, along with a poster design workshop with one of the artists on display. Austrian illustrator Enrico Bravi, professor at New Design University, will hold the workshop on 15 September.
