Reanimate an iconic poster – an international competition


Artists, designers and animators around the world are invited to turn one or more of these iconic posters as GIFs or short animations. Anyone can enter the competition!


The Warsaw International Poster Biennale exhibition - opening in June 2016 - will feature the best entries in a competition to give new life to ten classic poster designs from the history of the world’s most important poster biennale.


With posters increasingly being presented to the public on digital screens, the future of the poster is one of animation and motion.


Ten leading designers whose posters have featured in the Warsaw Biennale since it opened in 1966: Milton Glaser, Marion Diethelm, Roman Cieślewicz, Jacqueline S. Casey, Alain Le Quernec, Finn Nygaard, Shin Matsunaga, Tahamtan Aminian, Shaghayegh Fakharzadeh i Małgorzata Gurowska – have agreed to allow their work to be reimagined as moving images.


The jury will shortlist the best 10 animated works, one for each of the selected posters, which will be presented at the main exhibition “The Poster Remediated” of the 25th International Poster Biennale at the Poster Museum at Wilanów. The jury was selected from members of the Program Council of the Biennale. The judges are: Magdalena Frankowska, Grzegorz Laszuk and Agata Szydłowska..


The overall winner of the competition will receive a prize of 1000 Euros.


The entry form will be available on the Biennale's website from the March 15th.


Entries can be submitted from 15.03.2016 and the competition closes on 10.05.2016, 23:59 CET.
