These posters constitute one of the finest and largest ensembles of international posters located in France and most likely in all of Europe, offering an exciting counterpart to the Fonds Dutailly, a collection of historic posters bequest to the city one century ago.
This unique ensemble is intrinsically linked to the Festival, laying the groundwork for the Graphic design, which will establish Chaumont as leading forum for work, encounters, research and permanent exhibitions in the field of poster and graphic design.
We invite you to take part in the International Competition 2009 by sending us your best recent work, whatever the topic.
We hope you will join us in Chaumont for the Festival’s opening on May 15nd, 16th and 17th in order to discover the exciting programme for 2009 and to attend the awards ceremony. An increasing number of students, professionals and general public come to the Chaumont Festival each year to discover the best in contemporary French and international creation and to pay homage to a key personality in the history of graphic design.
