Hosted by Western Washington University's Design BFA Cohort
As designers, we are accustomed to adapting our skill sets to meet the needs of our environment and circumstances. The past few months have been a testament to just that. Each year, we, the graduating Design BFA cohort at Western Washington University, hold a portfolio show to celebrate and exhibit years of hard work—this year, things changed. In keeping with the spirit of connecting the design community, we decided to try something new and host a poster competition instead.
This is an open call for posters from creatives around the globe to contribute work that celebrates what’s good amidst the world’s current crisis. What's going on in your community that makes you happy and gives you inspiration?

1st, 2nd, & 3rd Place – Winners will be recognized and posters will be included in a printed edition. Winners will receive a copy.
25 Finalists – Posters will be included in the print edition. Winners will receive a copy.
The top 25 finalists will win a print edition of the competition submissions and get individual pages highlighting their posters.
Technically no. However, we are raising money to support next year's design students with a scholarship fund, therefore we are suggesting a $25 minumum donation be made by professional entering the competition.
