International Reggae Poster Contest

Abstract image for Bob Marley

Celebrate the voice, vision and vocabulary of Jamaican popular music through the medium of visual art.

The goal is simple: create a poster about Reggae music - the rest is up to your imagination.

The competition

The International Reggae Poster Contest (IRPC) is calling for entries for social communication in the form of a poster.

The contest is an initiative designed to celebrate positive international reggae culture. The term Reggae used by the contest encompasses all the popular Jamaican musical genres; Ska, Rocksteady, Roots Reggae, Dub, Dancehall and the unique Jamaican Soundsystem.

With this year’s poster theme being ‘Toward a Reggae Hall of Fame, Celebrating Great Jamaican Music’, the contest calls on your talent and creative visual expressions in coming up with an original poster design that captures the energy and the vibe of Reggae Music.

Posters may be designed by a single artist or by a team. You are allowed to submit any number of original posters. Posters should be original artworks and have not been published in prints, internet, social media etc…

The contest is open to all graphic designers and artists all over the world.


In 2015, IRPC will reward the best 100 designs by including them in various exhibitions all over the world. In addition, a book with all 100 posters will be published.
