We will arange a new contest in November-December 2017, to search for the Finnish Travel Poster of the year 2018.
Do you love Finland? Do you possess an untamed creative streak? Do you want others to understand the charm behind the this fantastic country?
In that case – read this carefully!
We are launching a big travel poster contest for the whole world. The contest is open for illustrators, graphic artists and artists all over the world, heck, anyone who can paint or draw by hand or use a drawing tool on the computer.
Why a travel poster, you ask?
Because that was how it all started. With creative travel posters – in a style which today is called vintage – travellers from both near and far were attracted to Finland. That resulted in stunningly beautiful works of art by Finnish artists, which to this day continue to seduce us.
Now we want to do it all over again. And this time we want the whole world to participate.
But for that we need your help.
We therefore launch The Travel Poster Contest “My Finland Poster” which is all about capturing Finland in a poster in an appealing, stylish and why not humouristic manner.
The style is free. Winter or summer, fall or spring, monuments or nature, details or wholes, modern or vintage-inspired, anything, as long as it feels right to you. It is your Finland that we want to capture. Your Finland as an inspiration for the rest of the world.
But before you start sketching, read the rules, instructions and terms here!
And the prize?
The winner gets a trip to Finland worth 2000 € ! (not exchangable for cash) + 1000 € in cash (taxable according to Finnish laws, if the winner has a company of his own, an invoice can also be sent).
If the winner lives in Finland he/she can invite a friend to Finland on a trip worth 2000 € + 1000 € in cash (taxable according to Finnish laws, if the winner has a company of his own, an invoice can also be sent).
The winning contribution will also be displayed at the big travelling exhibition Come to Finland – Paradise calling at The National Museum of Finland in Helsinki during the spring of 2017. The exhibition presents closer to one hundred classic travel posters and tells the tale about how Finland went from unknown principality to Land of Romance.
The contest is open 5.12.2016 - 12.1.2017. That means that we need your contribution in our inbox at the very latest 23:59 (Finnish time) on the 12th of January 2017. Late contributions will not be considered.
Organized by Visit Finland, The National Museum of Finland and Come to Finland Publishing Ab.
