Design a poster dedicated to 30th the anniversary of the establishment
of the Visegrad Group!
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Association of Polish Graphic Designers invite you to participate in the international poster competition. The competition task is to create a poster dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Visegrad Group (V4). We want the jubilee of cooperation to release the creativity of artists inspired by a common history, cultural dialogue, and the values of the V4 countries, built-in solidarity. We want to clash the tradition of poster design, so strong in this part of Europe, with new styles in design. We invite you to participate!
The competition is open to citizens of the Visegrad Group countries: the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary.
The Visegrad Group (V4) is one of the main formats of cooperation between Central European countries, the members of which are the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Poland. The V4 was established in 1991 with the original purpose of Member States supporting each other in their efforts to join the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). Currently, cooperation takes place on many levels, both internally and on the forum of the EU and other international organizations. The current model of cooperation within the V4 is determined by the rotating annual presidencies of individual member states. The current presidency of the V4 is held by Poland, and it will be the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Visegrad Group. On this occasion, in the jubilee year 2021, a series of activities are planned to educate this anniversary. For additional information visit the links below:
