Yesterday our live jury team gathered in Paris to spend a day selecting the best 100 posters of this year’s competition. These were taken from the shortlist of 400 posters chosen by our 100 online jury members to whom we also want to send a big thank you!
On a slightly less positive note, we feel that we must point out that while we received more than 5300 posters this year, only 2970 were eligible for the competition. The rest were eliminated because they had been entered anonymously (around 800) contained signatures (around 400), shared elsewhere on the Internet (around 400) or represented a very extreme or offensive answer to the ‘make extremism history’ brief.
However, we are very happy with the overall quality of the posters and the results of the jury’s deliberation will be announced a few days before the end of November. The international premiere of this year’s exhibition will take place on Thursday 8 December.
Finally we would like to thank the French Ministry of Culture, our partner Unesco, and Paris City Hall – as well as all the jurors - for their support throughout this process.
