The jury will announce the winners’ list on June 14th over cocktails at the Colette shop in Paris. During the evening, the top 50 posters will be on display.
Typographic 'Olympians' have until the end of April to enter at: www.conqueror.com/typographicgames
The typographic posters are on the theme of sport, based on the statement: ‘It’s not what you win, but how you conquer it’. Terms and rules are also available online: www.conqueror.com/typographicgames
The ‘Gold’ winner will receive tickets to the Olympic Games 2012 as well as a trip to London, and the 5 ‘Silver’ winners, a pair of Nike trainers. Their posters, in addition to 7 ‘Bronze’ winner submissions, will be published in ‘Creative Review’.
Everyone is also encouraged to vote for their favourite country on the site. At the moment, the 'top 5' designs are from Ireland, Italy (2), Turkey and France, though the peer voting changes this all the time.
