The 100/100: Hundred Best Arabic Posters at 421

by Dubaiforum
As part of its rigorous mission to support creatives in the region, this season 421 is presenting this year’s edition of the 100/100: Hundred Best Arabic Posters competition from February 5 to March 5, 2023, at 421.

The 100/100: Hundred Best Arabic Posters is founded by a group of academics and students from Cairo that features the Arab world’s visual culture by selecting and highlighting the best Arabic posters from the region. ⁠

The designs reflect an exercise in experimental crowd-sourced design and celebrate the diverse cultural aesthetics and rich creative landscape of the region. It demonstrates the plasticity of the Arabic language in its lively relationship to design, as it moulds itself structurally around shifting design dictations.  
The competition is a marker for culture, heritage, and history, and the exhibition acts as a critical archive of Arab-born designs and types from over 40 countries.
