Because of the war we are contemporaries in and the vocation of posters to express the feelings of society, we are expanding the special topic Posters for Posters with the message: THE POWER OF POSTERS
The Triennial aims to present the achievements of artists from all over the world, creating posters for the cultural scene—classical, modern, experimental forms of various stage performances: theatre, opera, dance, operetta, musical, circus, puppet theatre, pantomime, concerts, pop music, festivals, video and visual forms, etc.
The Tenth International Triennial of Stage Poster-Sofia will be held in November 2022 in Sofia.
Terms of participation:
Accepted are posters created during the period May 30, 2019 – April 30, 2022.
1st Category: Printed posters for cultural events —classical, modern, multi-genre, etc. display of theatrical, stage, screen, musical, visual or other type of art.
2nd Category: Posters on a specific topic: POSTERS FOR POSTERS
The organizers’ idea for the 10th anniversary edition of the Triennial is to focus on the poster itself, and on its creator—the poster artist. We expect to receive posters for solo or group exhibitions; for forums and poster competitions; for personalities from the world of the poster; posters that reflect your personal attitude towards the poster itself as a way of thinking and as a stage for expression.
The section is open to posters issued for events that have already taken place or that are created specifically for the tenth edition of the International Triennial of Stage Poster-Sofia.
No text is required.
