Trnava (Slovakia) - The Jan Koniarek Gallery and co-organisers including the Trnava Self-governing Region and the Slovak Design Centre have announced the eighth edition of the Trnava Poster Triennial (TPT) - accepting submissions until 15 July 2012. Over the last 21 years, the local action has evolved into a prestigious Icograda-endorsed international event.

After last edition's experiment with theme of web design, the competition returns to the original mission of the Triennial - the poster. Relationships of modern media and poster will be exposed during accompanying events.

During the exhibition, to take place from 9 November 2012 to 3 February 2013, the organisers have prepared a comprehensive retrospective of the founder and long-time honorary president of TPT, Joseph Doka jr., who passed away last year.
