Marc H. Choko Scholarships
Contest organized by the Société des designers graphiques du Québec
Soon in the Museum Atrium!
These posters on the theme “Land of Welcome”, 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.
As part of Montreal’s 375th Anniversary and Canada’s 150th Anniversary of Confederation, the competition is being held this year in collaboration with the Centre social d’aide aux immigrants. Founded in 1947 by Marie-Gérin-Lajoie under the auspices of the Institut Notre-Dame du Bon-Conseil, the Center –which became secular in 2003– is dedicated to helping immigrants and refugees to adapt to their new country through free English and French courses, through support in their job search and complete various administrative procedures, and so on.
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.
