Terras Gauda Wineries will award €16,000 to the winners, with €10,000 going to the 1st prize, €2,000 to the 1st Runner-up, 2nd Runner-up and Honorable Mention, respectively.

The panel of judges for the International Biennial Poster Design Terras Gauda 2019 will benefit from the criteria of professionals with recognized prestige: internationally acclaimed designer Javier Jaen, winner of the Laus Award and author of works for The New York Times, The Washington Post and National Geographic; and Diego Areso, Art Director of El País and El País Semanal. Along with them, National Design Prize winner Miguel Palmeiro will attend on behalf of the Portuguese studio United By, the winner of the latest edition of the competition.

Deadline is the 30th of September 2019.
