for Peace

We put out the call… and you answered!

We received hundreds of posters from around the world, and our jury is now hard at work selecting those to be displayed at the 2017 Posters for Peace exhibition. From those selected, their top pick will receive the CA$4,000 grand prize.

If you can’t make it to the exhibition during the Montreal Bed-In for Peace, stay tuned as the posters will soon be made available for viewing online.
