At the core of 100/100's activities is the HUNDRED BEST ARABIC POSTERS competition, where an independent jury selects the top 100 posters every two years. Over the last decade, four rounds have been completed, resulting in the selection of 400 winning posters from over 7,400 submissions spanning 23 countries. This marks its inaugural presentation in Qatar.
