The Reggae Jam Festival and HELP Jamaica! brought 60 winning posters from the 6th International Reggae Poster Contest to Germany in August. This was the Contest’s 22nd exhibition and the first in Germany. Sponsored by VP Records and Reggae Jam, the exhibition was a great success. It included a silent auction which raised €500 for Alpha Boys’ School. Maria Papaefstathiou, co-founder of IRPC, thanks Bernd Lagemann (Sheriff), founder and organizer of the Reggae Jam Festival and Hilmar Keding, founder of HELP Jamaica!, for embracing the Contest, the exhibition and Alpha Boys’ School. She would not have been able to hold the exhibition without their enormous support. Maria left Germany, where she was born, and went home to Greece with the hope that she will return to Reggae Jam next year. In the meantime, she is preparing for the next exhibitions this year, including one in Jamaica in November.
The IRPC goes biennial
We wish to inform all designers that the Contest will now be biennial, not annual, as in the past. The 7th Call for entries will be announced at the start of 2020. In 2019, the Contest will celebrate 6 successful years. We will continue to host exhibitions showcasing the best posters produced since the inception of the Contest. We will also include posters contributed by the jury panel and friends of the Contest.
If you would like to bring an exhibition of the Art of Reggae to your city, festival or art school, please contact us.
Thank you all for your continuing support!
