    We are very excited to see what designers can come up with in their original poster designs that will capture the energy and vibe of Reggae Music. The goal is simple: create a poster about Reggae Music – the rest is up to your imagination. Feel free to explore topics of Reggae covering any one of the genres. In addition, incorporate the contest theme as part of the poster design.

    The objective of the Second International Reggae Poster Contest 2013 is to continue to build awareness for Reggae music and to celebrate the global achievements of Reggae and its positive impact on the world. The term Reggae encompasses all the popular Jamaican musical genres; Ska, Rocksteady, Roots Reggae, Dub, Dancehall and the unique Jamaican Sound System. The Poster competition is part of a bigger vision that seek to establish a Reggae Hall of Fame in Kingston, Jamaica.

    We will also use this opportunity to raise funds to support the amazing work of a historic and wonderful Jamaican institution, the Alpha Boys' School. The Alpha Boys' School is a jewel in the center of Kingston, and it shines all over Jamaica and, through its graduates, in the music they create, throughout the world. Alpha decades of success with young Jamaicans, entering raw and emerging world-renown musicians themselves is testimony to the storied success. Without this amazing institution and its successful music program; Ska, Rocksteady, Dub and Roots Reggae music may not have been invented.
