The 3rd International Poster Biennial, Ningbo 2004


Inaugurated in 1999, the Ningbo International Poster Biennial has hitherto been successfully held twice. The day of Nov. 26th, 2004 is going to greet the 3rd International Poster Biennial, Ningbo and related exhibition series, which will be held again in the beautiful, port city of Ningbo, China. The newly completed Ningbo Museum of Art will be the showplace for current exhibition.

The 1st International Poster Biennial, Ningbo 1999 (International Fashion and Culture Poster Exhibition, 1999) and the 2nd International Poster Biennial, Ningbo 2001 have held successfully. The latter one, which has received almost 2000 posters from 42 nations and regions, has evoked worldwide repercussions. International jury, which was composed of international top-level graphic designers, screened the 315 posters of the highest level; these posters were exhibited successfully in Nov. 5th, 2001, thus attracting attentions of global design teams and designers. Ningbo actually has become the first city holding international poster biennial in China. Thousands of designers and students from all over the world gathered here to exchange their ideas. Having a far-reaching influence throughout the world, it has greatly promoted the development of the international design art and has also provided opportunities for designers to present their talents.

The current international poster biennial will still be strictly operated by the international rules, aiming at providing more chances for international graphic designers to communicate and discuss graphic design, thus promoting quality pursuit and academy spirit of professional design, encouraging the participation and contribution of design in the society, driving attentions from the mass, popularizing high-level graphic design, boosting the fusion of international design concept, urging original poster design , pushing the development of graphic design, and upgrading professional level of graphic design.
