With less than 100 days until the opening of the Summer Olympic Games, more than 500 posters from 50-plus countries are now in the Conqueror’s Typographic Games competition.
Sponsors of the event have asked international designers to create the best typographic poster on the theme of sport, based on the statement: “It’s not what you win, but how you conquer it.”
If you’d like to participate, you still have until April 30 to enter the competition. Submission is free, and entries are posted online. Website visitors show their support by voting for their favorites.
The international panel of jurors will deliberate on the top 50 designs for the “Typographic Games” in June 2012.
The jury is composed of journalists, bloggers, designers, and typographers. World-renown typographer, Jean-François Porchez, heads the jury. Porchez designed five bespoke “Conqueror” typefaces as part of the “It’s Not What You Say, It’s How You Say It” award-winning campaign, which re-launched the Conqueror brand in 2010.
The jury will announce the winners on June 14 at the Colette Shop in Paris. During the evening, the top 50 posters will be displayed.
The ‘Gold’ winner will receive tickets to the 2012 Olympic Games, as well as a trip to London, and the five ‘Silver’ winners will receive a pair of Nike shoes. Their posters, in addition to seven ‘Bronze’ winner submissions, will be published in the international design magazine “Creative Review.”
