ORIGINAL & COPY
International Student
Poster Competition

This year, for the sixth year running, the
poster festival Weltformat is organising a
student international poster competition.
Twenty posters will be shortlisted and unveiled
at a special outdoor exhibition at the
festival in Lucerne in September. At the opening
of the festival, the winning poster will be
awarded a prize of 1,500 CHF by APG|SGA
(Switzerland’s leading Out of Home advertising
company). In addition, 500 copies of the
winning poster design will be printed and
displayed throughout Switzerland after the
festival, courtesy of APG|SGA.
THEME: ORIGINAL & COPY
The original and the copy are two terms
which are used in printmaking. There is the
original and the print template from which
any number of copies and proofs can be
made. Can this law be broken and all the
requirements of modern printing and design
techniques changed so that every copy
becomes an original?
In a stylistic capacity, the terms original and
copy are also not uninteresting. A generation
of designers often cites earlier eras or builds
on its achievements. Where is the moment in
which the copy of a style becomes something
new, something original and when does the
copy merely remain a copy?
SUBMISSION
The twenty shortlisted posters will be printed
in F4 format (895 x 1280mm); however, for
the purposes of judging, entries must only
be saved as JPEGs with 150 dpi, ISO A3
(297 x 420 mm) and not exceed 3 MBs. A
maximum of three entries per person may be
submitted. The designs can be uploaded at
the following address before 31st July 2016:
www.weltform.at
OTHER PROCEDURES
After the closing date, a jury will evaluate
and shortlist twenty designs. The jury
retains the right to disqualify work which has
already been published as well as plagiarised
material. The chosen pieces will be
unveiled at the outdoor exhibition in front of
the Lucerne Theatre from the 24th September
until the 2nd October 2016. The winning
poster design will be announced at the opening
ceremony.
JURY
The jury is made up of four poster designers,
as well as a representative of APG|SGA:
Jiri Oplatek, Basel
Alice Kolb, Berne
Sven Lindhorst-Emme, Berlin
Till Lauer, Lucerne
Bruno Niederberger, APG|SGA

6 th East + West — International College Students Poster Biennale
Ten years until now has witnessed five successful “East + West” International College Students Poster Biennale. Wuhan along the Yangtze River, long reputed as the “Thoroughfare to nine provinces”, congregates cultures from eastern China and western China. And Wuhan, a strategic pivot for rise of central China, will play a more and more important role in future economic and cultural exchanges between the east and the west.

Poster for tomorrow
In last year's brief we talked about "a world where boundaries are becoming less and less meaningful. Now more than ever, we are one people. No matter where we live, we are all equally powerless in the face of war or environmental disaster."
