Create your RESTART poster!


After the success of the ‘Silent Shores’ poster competition in 2020, the Montreux Jazz Festival is running another major visual arts initiative, with the theme of ‘RESTART’. For this new competition the Festival has joined forces with its partner Vaudoise Assurances, which supports contemporary Swiss art through its Arts Committee. Several prizes will be awarded, and thirty artists will be given the opportunity to have their work displayed during the Festival.


Send us your own design on the theme of ‘RESTART’, with the following technical specifications:

  • Format: 50×70 cm (portrait orientation)
  • File: .jpeg in 150 dpi
  • Text to include on the poster:
    Montreux Jazz Festival 2021
  • Do not include the Montreux Jazz Festival logo
  • One design per person
  • Deadline: 11 April 2021 at 11:59 p.m. (Central European Time)

The posters chosen for the exhibition will be printed. Artists whose work is selected for the exhibition will be asked to send their HD files at a later date. Please therefore submit your design in the correct format, as outlined above (50×70 cm and 150 dpi).


The competition is open to anyone working in the visual arts (such as graphic designers, illustrators, painters and photographers), and to students and apprentices of any form of visual art.

Entries must be submitted individually and in the artist’s own name.

The competition is not open to any advertising agencies, or to anyone who has played a direct role in designing and organising the competition. Entries that do not comply with these rules will not be considered.

The deadline for the competition has passed and it is no longer possible to send in your poster. Join us on our social networks to discover the 10 finalists and vote for your favorite poster!
