Ladies and gentlemen,

Faculty of Fine Arts Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, the Centre for the Meeting of Cultures in Lublin and the Open Art Workshop in Lublin Association have the honour to invite you to participate in the 4th International Poster Biennale Lublin 2019.

Posters can be submitted in 4 categories. The first of these, category A, is intended for those who are interested in or involved in poster art. Category B is dedicated for those who are currently studying or graduating in 2018.

In categories A and B, posters can raise any subject. However, these must be works that were created after June 30, 2017. Please do not submit works that have been awarded in other competitions (Grand Prix prizes, 1st and 3rd place). In two thematic categories, everyone mentioned above can submit their works.

Category C is called "Clean air". We want posters to show the benefits of a clean environment.
