The winning
posters

‘I congratulate the winners of the Erste Wahl poster campaign and I am looking forward to seeing these posters in public the next weeks. I am very impressed by the creativity of all the participants and I am sure that they will inspire many people; especially to vote on Sunday, 9 June 2024. It is the first time in Germany that young people from the age of 16 can vote in the European elections and it is important to make them aware of it and that they can help shape Europe.’

Barbara Gessler
Head of the Representation of the European Commission in Germany

203 students from 34 German universities with design degree programmes submitted 358 proposals for the nationwide Erste Wahl poster competition. The shortlist was published on 15 April.

On 25 April 2024 we have announced the winning posters within an award ceremony:

What's next?

The winning posters will be displayed in railway stations in whole Germany from 26 April to 10 June 2024. The works of the young designers should be an artful inspiration for people to vote in the European elections on 9 June.
