The international Cyprus Poster Triennial (CPT) is to be a nonprofit institution that aims to promote and disseminate knowledge and creativity in the field of graphic design by focusing on the poster as a major medium of visual communication. Posters have been influential not only as vehicles for providing information but also as tools for social change, developing awareness on critical issues, dissemination of revolutionary or political ideas, and propaganda since the early printing of broadsides in the early nineteenth century until the present day of the digital era.
The Cyprus Poster Triennial (CPT) aspires to establish a graphic design event in the Mediterranean at a location that can serve as a bridge between East and West while also bringing together designers from all over the world with diverse perspectives to meet and celebrate the wondrous power of the graphic poster. We accept posters from everywhere in the world as long as they do not contain offensive content against any ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or physical condition. The Triennial is open to any talent, whether new or established, and there are no entry fees because the entire project will rely only on volunteer work and sponsorship. The visionaries and founders of the Cyprus Poster Triennial were Evripides Zantides, Omiros Panayides, and Savvas Xinaris.
