Gagarin Design Awards 2021 – Poster Competition!
The international thematic poster competition Gagarin Design Awards 2021 has started in Russia. On 12th April, 2021, on Cosmonautics Day, the jury started accepting applications and works for the International graphic design competition «Gagarin Design Awards 2021», timed to coincide with the 60th anniversary of Yu.A. Gagarin’s space flight.
The task for the participants is to create a thematic poster dedicated to the first human space flight.
Graphic designers, illustrators, photographers, students at specialized creative universities and all those interested in industrial design are invited to participate in the Competition.
«Space is a different reality, multi-temporal, multidimensional and multifaceted. In the past, space was meant to be observable and admirable order. For centuries, man has been striving to comprehend its secrets, and Gagarin’s flight has become a symbol of the beginning of a new era of our comprehension of the Universe.
This is an inexhaustible topic, inextricably linked to the beauty surrounding us, which is not fully disclosed in terms of design. Each participant of the competition can offer their own unique vision of Space and the first Flight» – commented Viktor Klimenko, one of the founders and director of Siberian Design Centre.
The project aims to show a cross-section of contemporary Russian poster art in its development and to discover new names in illustration and design. The format was not chosen by chance: this is a pronounced form of a graphic product, which contains a lot of things. At the same time, the format is not as voluminous and complex as, for example, a book. Images are perceived easily and quickly. That is why posters are so strong, appealing, and enchanting.
The competition will be held in several stages: the acceptance of works, which will be assessed by the competent jury of the Competition, will last until 12th June. Further, according to the results of the assessment, the best works will be selected, and three winners will be named by 28th June. The fourth winner of the competition will be selected among the finalists by open vote. In addition to general recognition, the finalists will also receive money prizes: 50000 rubles for the first place, 25000 and 18000 rubles for the second and third places, respectively. The Audience Choice Award will bring its owner 15000 rubles.
The winners will receive their well-deserved awards, and you will be able to see their works with your own eyes at a thematic exhibition that will take place in the summer.
