MORE INFORMATION

August 25(Fri) - September 18(Mon)

As the third round of a poster design competition for students across Japan, the exhibition showcases 129 pieces selected and awarded from 1,178 entries, all themed on food. The JAGDA Student Grand Prix is a nationwide poster design competition for students at high-school level or above. The Japan Graphic Designers Association calls for poster works on a different theme each year. Outstanding works are selected and awarded in a screening by seven JAGDA member designers. This year’s theme was “food.” Food is not only essential to us, it is also a culture linked with countries and regions, and a pressing social problem. The students considered this subject from various standpoints and angles, and expressed those views on posters. The exhibition presents 129 pieces that were selected and awarded, including the Grand Prix work, under one roof. By all means observe the expressiveness of the next-generation responsible for the future of Japan’s graphic design.
