Poster Quadrennial Bardejov 2021


Poster Quadrennial Bardejov ( PQB ) is an international poster competition held regularly with a four-year frequency in the town of Bardejov. It builds a unique presentation platform in eastern Slovakia, enabling graphic designers from all over the world to present their Poster Artworks.

The aim of the PQB is to raise public awareness of “poster culture” and visual communication in general. The event is also accompanied by other supporting activities in the field of graphic design. Poster Quadrennial Bardejov 2021 ( PQB21 ) is exceptional in its focus on the physically printed Artwork Poster, in contrast to the current trends of just digital creation process.
