AndNowEast Poster Festival


Poster Festival & Open Call

Author: grsldc

We are delighted to announce that the first edition of AndNowEast Poster Festival will take place in Bucharest, Romania, from September 17th to 26th, 2021. Take the opportunity and submit your poster by August 30th, 2021 and be part of the event: AndNowEast Poster Festival.

AndNowEast is a poster festival dedicated to Eastern European designers with a showcase of some of the best submissions, 50+ poster designs from 18 countries, workshops, talks, special guests, and many more surprises.

“Not so long ago, we had two Europes separated by History into West and East. West was fresh, colorful, and smart, East was cold, grey, and Utopia. And we are all aware of the stereotypes, but something still lives as a legend. Now borders are off, the Internet is on, we have ponies and rainbows, and we are repeatedly asking ourselves if our grass is as green as on the other side. Or maybe greener? AndNowEast looks right of the imaginary fault line and asks: is there an Eastern European visual genius loci? From Intaglio to Indigo to Instagram, the poster has continuously adapted to answer our communication needs. The placard is a versatile vehicle, a mirror of our social and cultural environment, and a summary of our material, and immaterial appetites. In short: a colored radiograph of civilization. AndNowEast is a local initiative with a regional reach and a global mindset.”

The Open Call for poster submission is still available until August 30th, 2021. They invite all designers, students, freelancers, and all graphic designers from Eastern Europe to submit their posters. Eligible countries are Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Greece, Hungary, Kosovo, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine.

AndNowEast is organized by Local Design Circle, an NGO aiming to become the voice of Romanian designers, facilitate access to education, and help shape a healthier visual environment.
