Lloyd J. Harris Pies by Rocco Navigato, 1947

Poster House is a new museum dedicated to the global history and design of posters. Before launch, they are partnering with the largest library in the world, The Library of Congress, to highlight important pieces of poster history. Choose one of 31 posters from the Library of Congress “free to use and re-use” collection, and animate it in any way you can imagine, bringing new life to these poignant historical vignettes. The competition is open to absolutely everyone: professionals, students, and dabblers alike.

Twenty winning works chosen by a panel of design legends will populate the museum’s storefront in Manhattan leading up to its grand opening. Winners will also receive free museum membership, their names shown alongside their work in the museum’s window and all social/PR/web publicity, and the chance for a mentorship hour or portfolio review from one of our esteemed judges. For complete rules, regulations, and image options see posterhouse.org. Submissions due no later than December 31!
