The 100 Best Posters from Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2021

24.06.2022 to 10.07.2022

Each year graphic-arts enthusiasts can look forward to the results of the 100 Best Posters competition, which recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. It is already certain that the winning designs, which go on display at the Kulturforum in June 2022, represent a cutting-edge cross-section of the best poster art in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Posters for the cultural sector, in particular, offer plenty of opportunity for inventive imagery and exciting approaches to graphic, typographic and photographic design.
