"The Renaissance of the night train"
Deadline: 31/10/2021 23h59
Back on Track Belgium vzw-asbl is organising a European poster competition " The Renaissance of the Night Train".
The poster competition takes place within the European Year of Rail as an official #EUYearofRail event. Objective is promoting the night train within the European transport sector goals formulated in the European Green Deal.
Our poster competition is a nod to the past of graphic art, that we all know from the posters of illustrious night trains such as "Ostende-Vienne Express", not forgetting that today's European transport sector has changed a lot.
How to submit?
We call on all interested parties, from all over Europe, to design a poster in A1 format that highlights the benefits of night train travel for passengers or for society in general. A jury will make a selection from all entries, which will be exhibited in Brussels in autumn 2021. In early December, the winner and other laureates will be announced.
To submit, fill in the form and send us a PDF version of your poster via a transfer platform (e.g. We Transfer) to
postercompetition (at) back-on-track.eu or by post in time.
The entries must, among other things, comply to these rules:
Reflect the past or future of the night train, night train destinations of #Hub4Brussels or innovation or advantages related to the night train
