The Fryderyk Chopin Institute invites you to take part in a competition for visual identification of the 18th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition.
The graphic presentation of one of the oldest music competitions in the world has always inspired great interest. Its first edition in 1927 brought with it the birth of a Chopin poster concept that has endured without interruption until this day, Its essence is the combination of a typographic element with symbolism referring both to the person of Fryderyk Chopin, and to the long-standing tradition of the Chopin Competition.
