The latest iteration of the biennial non-commercial poster competition which originated at the German University in Cairo in 2015 and aims to document the Arab world’s contemporary visual culture through the best Arabic posters.
In total over 2,100 posters from 36 countries were submitted, showing the growing reach of Arabic visual culture and perhaps the growing importance of this competition.
The jury for this round included Möbius Studio (Hala Al-Ani, Hadeyeh Badri and Riem Hassan) from Sharjah, along with Wael Morcos (graphic and type designer from Lebanon, now based in New York); Shennawy (painter and designer, co-founder of TokTok magazine and Cairo Comics festival, based in Brussels); and Mohammad Sharaf (designer, head of his own studio in Kuwait).
