The Moscow Poster Competition is going to be held for a fourth time. In 2010, it was about social and political commentary. In 2011-2012, the key theme was 'A City Without Artists'; in 2013-2014, it was 'Culture: An Individual, Society and the State'. Our competitions result in exhibitions, published catalogues and feature round-table discussions and participant meetings.
