The winners of the competition 100 beste Plakate 20 D A CH for the best posters from German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) in 2020 have been announced after the jury meeting on March 4th and 5th, 2021.

The competition attracted 600 entries with a total of 1,973 posters (868 individual posters, 321 series).

The jury, chaired by Markus Weisbeck, Studio Markus Weisbeck (Frankfurt am Main / Berlin, Germany) with Xavier Erni, NeoNeo (Geneva-Carouge, Switzerland), Andrea Gassner, Atelier Andrea Gassner (Feldkirch, Austria), Na Kim (Seoul, Republic of Korea / Berlin, Germany), and Franziska Morlok, Rimini Berlin (Berlin, Germany) first made an online pre-selection as usual.

At the final jury meeting, which due to pandemic restrictions was not held as a face-to-face event as planned, but in the form of an online video meeting, there were 743 posters (298 individual posters and 127 series) from 275 participants.

The Results
By country, the winning 100 posters and poster series were divided into 43 × Germany, 50 × Switzerland, and 7 × Austria—of which were 75 × category A (commissioned work), 8 × B (own commissions), and 17 × C (student project commissions*). * This information is preliminary, as the category assignment may be adjusted during further evaluation of the results.

The opening exhibition with presentation of all posters and presentation of the yearbook, which will again be published by Dortmund based Verlag Kettler, will open in mid-June 2021 in the Kulturforum Potsdamer Platz of the Staatlichen Museen zu Berlin in cooperation with the Kunstbibliothek der Staatlichen Museen (Art Library) and will then be on display at several venues in the three participating countries as well as in Korea.
