+ Call for entries has been announced by Poster Museum at Wilanow, the Polish Poster Foundation. International Poster Biennale in Warsaw, the first poster Biennale in the world was held in 1966. The idea of periodic international review achievements in the field of poster art was first proposed by Polish graphic designers in the beginning of the sixties. The man who inspired the project and was its first organizer was Professor J zef Mroszczak. Winning the highest acclaim among critics and graphic designers, Biennale soon grew into the most important and prestigious artistic event of this type in the world. The finest names have been connected with it - as participants, laureates, jurors and friends. IPB is endorsed by the International Council of Graphic Design Association Icograda which funds an Icograda Excellence Award. Since 1994 the International Poster Biennale has been located in the Poster Museum at Wilanow.
