Is your graphic design work more than just a project? Then we’d love to see it. You can submit any outstanding work you’ve created as part of your studies.


Junge Grafik recognizes innovative, diverse and exceptional graphic work created during a student’s education and training. The Junge Grafik Award was created for both apprentices and students across Switzerland. The 30 winners will be nominated by a renowned jury and awarded their prize at the Weltformat Graphic Design Festival. All winning entries will be exhibited in multiple locations across Switzerland and featured on this website and in a printed publication – providing the prize winners with an ideal platform to promote their work.
