Anfachen Award VII

Anfachen Award VII

Poster Contest

Author: Josephine Schroeder

The Anfachen Award VII has launched its call for submissions. This time it’s about how you perceive, interpret, and artistically implement the idea of ENERGY! Your posters should inspire aesthetically and cause a stir.

You are free to choose from which personal, political, aesthetic, or formal angle you want to approach the subject of “energy.” We accept photographic, painted, graphic, and typographic works. With your participation you accept the following conditions.

The 25 best posters will be selected by an international jury and will first be displayed in Hamburg. They will confront the public in busy streets and highly frequented squares, become a subject of discussion and reflection, and thus encourage a broad and sustained debate on the topic.

Starting in June 2023, the selected posters will first dominate Hamburg’s cityscape for four weeks and then go on tour. In this way they will be seen in other German cities and also cause a stir internationally. Therefore, if language plays a role in the design, a German and an English version must be submitted.

A maximum of three posters can be submitted. The posters are to be in DIN A0 / 841 mm × 1189 mm format. We only accept designs in portrait format. The data (tif or PDF in CMYK) upload on the Website. If a poster is selected as one of the top 25, the printable data will be requested separately.
