Barcelona from a different point of view



Dado el escaso número de participantes y ante la imposibilidad de escoger un cartel que realmente represente el espíritu que buscaba el Concurso, el Jurado ha decidido declarar desierto este Concurso en su primera edición de 2017. Se cancela por consecuente tanto la exposición como la edición del libro conmemorativo de los 70 años de la imprenta Barcino. En cumplimiento de la LOPD, tanto los carteles recibidos, como los datos de los participantes, serán eliminados sin hacerse ningún uso de ellos.

Barcelona, 15 de Junio de 2017.
