International CompetitionInstored as of the creation of the Festival, the International Competition offers the public audience an exhibition of approximately one hundred contemporary posters selected among a thousand entries sent in by graphic designers from close to forty countries. These posters, communication projects for cultural, social or political projects, are sometimes self-initiated works for their own expression within an artistic or personal project. In all the cases, they strive, by the image and word, to transmit a subject and to create the link for the public to its essence.
The international jury, chaired by Ralph Schraivogel and made up of former prize winners of the Chaumont compeition, got together on March 22 and 23. This selection accounts for the topicality of posters around the world. It also illustrates the discussions led during the jury sessions: the importance of commissions, the balance between image and word, the innovative character in the use or composition of the poster itself.
On May 24th, three posters were be awarded the 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize of the competition and a fourth designer will be awarded the Icograda excellence award for the whole of his/her work.
