Marc H. Choko Scholarships

Contest organized by the Société des designers graphiques du Québec

Not to me missed in the Museum Atrium 

These posters on the theme of mental health and artistic expression, were selected from among the submissions to the Société des designers graphiques du Québec (SDGQ) design competition for the Marc H. Choko Scholarships.

This competition is open to students registered in a Quebec CEGEP or university graphic design program; its aim is to develop their skills and interest in poster design, while at the same time promoting a cause for the common good.

The second edition of this contest was made possible through a collaboration with Les Impatients. Founded in 1992, Les Impatients’ mission is to help people with mental health problems through artistic expression. It offers creative workshops and encourages dialogue with the community by showcasing their participants’ creations. The poster aims to communicate that art contributes to the participants’ recovery.

Marc H. Choko, Professor Emeritus at UQAM, awarded three scholarships to the creators of the best designs. The selection criteria are clarity of message, originality, harmony in the integration of text and image and overall quality.

Congratulations to Étienne Angot who won the Grand price.
Professor : Alfred Halasa / École de design of Université du Québec à Montréal
