Grand Prix

Jianping He
Saksa / Germany
Design X Taipei
Design X Taipei
2015

International jury:
It's a poster with a huge political impact and the same time with a sence of irony, because the illustration of Chiang Kai-shek is made out of newspaper advertisements. One can read the poster as a clash between communism and capitalism. 

First prize, Grafia Tapani Aartomaa Prix

Mark Bohle
Saksa / Germany
Nam nam!
Yum-Yum!
2015

International jury:
This poster licks your eyes! It's on the edge of disgust and taste. The illustration and the silkscreen print is crafted perfectly.

Second prize, Lahti Prix

Yuan Wang
Saksa / Germany
Uwe Loesch Polis-julisteita
Polis Posters by Uwe Loesch
2016

International jury:
This work is a good example of cultural transfer. The young designer from China made a poster for an exhibition of the influencial german graphic designer Uwe Loesch. It's a contemporary interpretation of Loesch's visual themes.

The Lauri Tarasti prize

Piotr Depta-Kleśta
Puola / Poland
Viestijuoksu
Relay Race
2016

International jury
This non-verbal poster works perfectly internationally. With a sence of humor it themes a very intergenerational problem. The poster reminds us of the necessity of saving nature and climate contracts.

Independence Posters prize
