The 100 Best Posters Germany Austria Switzerland competition is organized annually by 100 Beste Plakate e. V. and aims to publicize special achievements in poster design from the three countries in the form of a yearbook and several exhibitions.
Posters of all genres and printing techniques that were designed, printed and published in the respective year can be submitted.
The competition for the 100 best posters, which has so far been held 21 times on an international scale, is considered an important institution of contemporary poster design. Numerous graphic designers, students of graphic design at art academies and universities of applied sciences, agencies, offices, clients and printers take part every year. 
540 entrants with a total of 2,008 posters (888 individual posters, 325 series) took part in the current competition. 
The jury then made a preliminary selection. At the final jury meeting, which was conducted online due to pandemic restrictions, 362 posters (259 individual posters and 103 series) by 227 entrants were considered. 
The 100 award-winning posters and poster series are divided into 39 × Germany, 54 × Switzerland and 7 × Austria and 78 × category A (commissioned works), 3 × B (artist commissions) and 19 × C (student project commissions).
Without restrictions on content or form in accordance with the competition announcement, the selection represents a broad stylistic palette of poster design in the German-speaking world and shows the work of professional designers and students on an equal footing. 
The results are presented on an exhibition tour as well as in the yearbook and are available for viewing free of charge in the searchable and filterable comprehensive online archive (since volume 01).
