During the meeting held on 21 December 2001 a decision was adopted which reads as follows:
"The Board of Directors of Bodegas Terras Gauda, S.A., has unan imously agreed to set up an Advertising Poster Design Competition as a tribute to the artis t who was not only solely responsible for the design of the corporate image, but also been a friend, efficient collaborator and partner since the creation of the Company. The winning original will fo rm the basis for the Company’s advertising campaign for a two years period".
Terras Gauda Wineries and the Galician Tourism Bureau will collaborate in the awarding of these prizes. The Galician Tourism Bureau, aware of the tradition of this Biennial competition, believes that it is of great interest for promoting tourism in Galicia and, in particular, wine tourism.
Terras Gauda Wineries and the Vigo Port Authority are once again the proud sponsors of the enormous and prestigious communications project that the International Biennial Poster Design Terras Gauda - Francisco Mantecón Competition has become. In an effort to establish a permanent connection between the competition and the city of Vigo and Galicia, both parties have signed a collaborative agreement which will allow the Port of Vigo (one of the most important in the world) to serve as a biannual showcase for avant garde international art through the exhibition of the original Competition entries. The Port will also host meetings of the panel of judges and the award ceremony.
The following announcement is the fruit of this agreement:
International submissions must specify on the package: No commercial value / For cultural use.
All those works postmarked in the sender’s post office prior to 6 p.m. on April 29th will be accepted.
