Poster competitions began to be popular in the 1950s and they obviously served their purpose, since many of the great works of the decade were the result precisely of a competition.

In the mid-1950s the city of Tampere wished to find new visual ways of promoting the town. In other words, it was time
to organise a poster competition.

64 entries were sent in, in joint second place came this poster by Martti Mykkänen!

Check out over 200 classic Finnish travel posters and read more about all the great Finnish poster artists in the digital version of our book ”Come to Finland” (found in three different editions; in English, French and German). After enjoying the posters a while we believe you are ready to order the real thing: the printed coffee table book.
