Award Announcement on Monday, June 24

Posters have been a popular means of visual storytelling for centuries, with narrative stories depicted through paintings or illustrations in the 19th and 20th centuries. Today, posters have become a visual language that designers and non-designers can use to generate posters with appropriate formats and messages.

The UDA’s annual design competition is a prestigious event where participants can showcase their best posters. The UDA will preserve the winning posters as historical artifacts, contributing to our outstanding design collections.

If you’re interested in joining this competition, we invite you to submit your best posters and become a part of our design legacy.
