The Animals of the Baltic Sea

"Treasure Island" Gdansk Archipelago of Culture, "Gdansk Community" Foundation and the Gdansk Library of the Polish Academy of Sciences have the honour to invite you to the opening of the exhibition of competition entries for the 9th "The Animals of the Baltic Sea" International Exlibris and Small Graphic Form Competition.


This year's edition of the 9th International Exlibris and Small Graphic Form Competition, entitled "The Animals of the Baltic Sea", was announced in March 2018. It brought together about 240 authors from the whole world, including China, Thailand, Argentina, USA, Mexico, Russia, Uruguay and European countries. Professionals and amateurs sent 470 works corresponding to the competition theme. We have used their meticulous efforts to bring attention to the extraordinary inhabitants of the Baltic Sea, distinguished by their unique colours, sizes, and names. The gammarid, common jellyfish and lion's mane jellyfish are only some of them. The best works selected by the jury will be displayed in an exhibition in the Historical Building of the Gdansk Library of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
