Poster contest "The Renaissance of the night train"

Back on Track Belgium vzw-asbl is organising an European poster competition " The Renaissance of the night train".

The poster competition takes place within the European Year of Rail and the objectives for the European transport sector 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)
