Crete - 4th International Poster Contest on Typography and Printing


The Museum of Typography in Crete, Greece announces the 4th International Poster Contest about Typography and Printing. The Greek word “τυπογραφία” to which the museum is dedicated, includes both arts.

Participants are mainly professionals and students of graphic and visual arts, as well as amateurs who can translate their ideas into posters. The thirty posters that will be distinguished by the jury will be presented at an exhibition, hosted at the amphitheater of the Museum for a year, until the next competition.
