The Austrian winners also include the graphic design cooperative Beton (Benjamin Buchegger, Daniel Car and Oliver Hofmann) with a poster series on the occasion of the relocation and the new image of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Motifs from the extensive collection of the Graphic Collection were printed on monochrome paper and underlaid with slogans.

The winning posters of the competition 100 Best Posters 21. Germany Austria Switzerland focus on current social discourses. For the 17th time, the 100 winning posters of the year will be presented at the MAK. The topics range from gender, equality and climate protection to Corona, cryptocurrency and NFTs. Typographic gimmicks, photo collages as well as photographs deal with these current issues. For the entrants from Austria, it was another successful year: seven Austrian posters made it into the top 100.

A total of 540 graphic designers, agencies and students from Germany, Austria and Switzerland took part in the competition with a total of 2,008 posters (888 individual posters and 325 series). After an online pre-selection, this year's jurors - Susanne Stahl (jury chair, Berlin), Christian Hoffelner (Vienna), Radovan Jenko (Ljubljana), Larissa Kasper (St. Gallen) and Denis Olgac (Berlin) - had 362 posters (259 individual posters and 103 series) from 227 entrants for final selection. 39 of the winning posters and poster series come from Germany, 54 from Switzerland and 7 from Austria.
