Do you love Finland and Finnish Lapland? Do you possess an untamed creative streak? Do you want others to understand the charm behind this fantastic region?

In that case – read this carefully!

We are again this year 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.

Check out the winner and the finalists for 2017 here!

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.

The contest

We therefore launch The Travel Poster Contest “My Finland Poster” which this year is all about capturing the region of Lapland, Finland in a poster in an appealing, stylish and why not humouristic manner.

Read more about Finnish Lapland here!

The style is free. Winter or summer, fall or spring, northern lights or the midnight sun, city life or the wildlife, mountains or mosquitos, details or wholes, modern or vintage-inspired, anything, as long as it feels right to you.

It is your Finnish Lapland that we want to capture. Your Lapland as an inspiration for the rest of the world.

Please visit cometofinland.fi (classic travel posters) and visitrovaniemi.fi (travel tips) for inspiration.

But before you start sketching, read the rules, instructions and terms here!

The prize

2000 € (taxable income).

The winner also gets a week long trip to Finnish Lapland for two! (not exchangable for cash). Included is the trip from Helsinki to Lapland and hotel accommodation for two in April-October 2018.

The deadline

The contest is open 02.11.2017 (2nd of November) - 04.01.2018 (4th of January). That means that we need your contribution in our inbox at the very latest 23:59 (Finnish time) on the 4th of January 2018. Late contributions will not be considered.

Organized by Come to Finland Publishing Ab Oy in collaboration with:

Arktikum, Grafia, Lapland Hotels, the advertising agency SEK and Visit Rovaniemi.
