Lahti Poster Biennial 2007

Lahti Art Museum 15 June - 30 September, 2007

High-quality poster art from all over the world was displayed at Lahti Art Museum 15 June to 30 September 2007. The posters competed and prizes were awarded in two categories, cultural, social and commercial posters and environmental posters. A serigraphy workshop was also arranged in co-operation with the Lahti Institute of Fine Arts.

One third of the entries submitted came from the Far East. Especially Japan, China, Taiwan and Korea were strongly represented in the exhibition. A total of 134 posters were sent from Iran which has clearly raised its profile lately in poster design. A great number of posters also came from Poland, Germany, Russia, France and the United States.

226 out of more than 1600 entries submitted were selected by the competition committee to be put on show. The members of the competition committee were the graphic designers Tapani Aartomaa, Pekka Loiri, Esa Ojala and Kari Piippo. An international jury selected the posters to be awarded. The members of the international jury were Maciej Buszewicz, Poland, Claude Kuhn, Switzerland, Mari Pietarinen, Finland and Volker Pfüller, Germany.
