The 3rd China International Poster Biennial

The 3rd China International Poster Biennial (CIPB) will be held in October 2007 at West Lake,Hangzhou China. This exhibition of posters, chosen from around the world,is intended to provide a review of the current state of international poster design. The
last two CIPBs have been highly successful, both of which included major international designers. It worked as a communicating platform for international design and education. At the sametime, they improved the progress of graphic international design.
CIPB is held by the China Academy of Art, which is the Educational Member of International Council of Graphic Design Associations (ICOGRADA). CIPB is one of the best international design exhibitions. The jury committee, which is formed of famous
graphic designers, is intended to review a higher level of Chinese poster design.
