My Finland Poster 2023

Create a travel poster with a Sauna theme and win 3000 euros!

Are travel posters your thing? Do you love saunas and Finland? Do you have an untamed creative streak?

Yes, we are once again launching our international travel poster contest ”My Finland Poster”.

The theme this time is … sauna. Taking a sauna is today an international symbol of Finland – be it winter or summer.

There is a lot written about saunas in books and on the internet. But the strange thing is that there aren't really any classic vintage posters for the Finnish sauna. It was not a tourist thing back then.

We are now going to change that. And that's where you come in.

The competition is open to illustrators, graphic designers and artists around the world.

Submit your poster by 06.08.2023. First prize is €3000 + a climate-smart trip to Finland (within Europe). Second prize is €500. In addition, the winning posters will be included in the Come to Finland assortment.

This is the sixth time Come to Finland Publishing has organized the competition with different themes. See the winning entries from previous years here.

Why a travel poster?

Because that's how it all started. Creative travel posters attracted travelers from near and far to Finland from the late 19th century and well into the 20th century. The result was dazzlingly beautiful works of art by both Finnish and foreign artists that still seduce today.

Now we want to do the same thing again. And we need your help.
