Laze Tripkov initiator of Skopje International Student Poster Competition said to us:
It is of great interest to us to give chance to the students of graphic design from all over the world to make a statement on the various issues thru posters. We have been exhibiting so far at some prestigious locations for ex. Parliament of Czech Republic, Warsaw Poster Museum; and almost every main exhibition is followed by an street presentation. This year competition was special to us, to the team of Skopjeposter festival, because it is our 5 anniversary. “Money for free” topic was a big challenge for students but as expected we received more than 1600 posters. It is worth mentioning that from this year we are focusing on promotion of the students, so we don’t grant money awards. Winners will be invited to present themselves within the Skopje Design Week 2013 with a solo-exhibition.
