5th Bolu International Poster Design Competition (BIAH)

Submissions have started for the 5th International Bolu Poster Design Competition. This year’s theme is Disabled Individuals in Society.

The competition’s theme is aimed at the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals titled “Good Health & Well-being” and “Reduced Inequalities“, adopted by the United Nations. 10 sub-theme suggestions are available to participants regarding the competition theme.

For the first time this year, BIAH (Bolu International Art Hall) will crown the event with a physical exhibition. On 3 December 2024, World Disability Day, the posters of the selected designers will be exhibited in Bolu Abant İzzet Baysal University’s art gallery.

Additionally, as always, a digital catalogue will be published, and certificates will be sent to the designers digitally.

Designers are expected to create designs that examine the following sub-themes. Participants can submit posters regarding each sub-theme.
