This postcard edition is intended to support the digital communication of the event program.


Participation is possible for both individuals and groups . No more than four drafts may be submitted per person or team .

Submissions must contain press-ready, one or multicolor designs in a JPG format . (The winner postcards can be requested as tif for printing, for the jury as a preview, submission as JPG is sufficient.)

They also agree that the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna may publish, with authorship credit, their submitted entries in printed and digital form with an Academy logo placed on the design. Participants agree that the submissions may be published.
