JAGDA INTERNATIONAL STUDENT POSTER AWARD 2021

“JAGDA International Student Poster Award” was established with the aim to discover and acknowledge outstanding young talents from across the world and to promote the further advancement of graphic design. Posters allow ideas to be freely expressed through the rich mixture of graphics and texts, giving them the instantaneous power to move the viewers' hearts and create visual communications that go beyond nations and regions. Our hope is to create a better understanding of each other and to share international issues through the means of posters. We look forward to your challenges!
