UDA Annual Int’l Design Competition 2022

Award Announcement on Monday, June 27



Posters show its narrative story defined as a painting or an illustration art in the 19th and 20th centuries that it remains in our culture as a historical artifact. Now, posters show the visual language that designers and non-designers can generate posters with their voices with appropriate formats and messages. Additionally, designers implement a new form of poster media, such as motion graphics and interactive posters. In the UDA’s prestigious annual design competition, all participants will show their best posters in still-image and motion-image posters, which UDA will preserve these posters as historical artifacts.

Please join our outstanding design collections by submitting your best posters.
