The exhibition resulting from the competition travels the world every year. After traveling in South Korea, Switzerland, Germany, Republic of Moldova, Slovenia, exhibition "100 Beste Plakate 22" now arrives in Cluj-Napoca (RO).

The competition "100 Beste Plakate" is one of the oldest design contests in Europe, operating in various formats since 1966, when the first awards were given for the best posters.

"The annual exhibitions offer a fascinating insight into contemporary culture of posters and promotes the different approaches and styles of participating artists and designers. Of to political messages to cultural events and to product representations, the award-winning posters covers a wide range of topics.
Poster proposals are welcome in all genres and print techniques provided they have been designed, printed and published in that year. The works are evaluated by a jury consisting of renowned specialists who change from year to year. By the visibility I get in the exhibition and the publication that accompanies it, the winners of the competition have access to international recognition", I find out from museographer Alexandra Sârbu.
