The International Poster Triennial in Toyama (IPT) was launched in 1985 as Japan's only full-fledged international poster competition, and the 2012 event marked the 10th to date. The number of entries has grown steadily through the years - from 1,567 for the first triennial to 4,622, from 53 countries and regions, in 2012 - with the result that today IPT ranks among the world's largest-scale poster exhibitions. To celebrate the 10th show, award-winning works (Grand Prix, Gold and Silber Prizes, Yusaku Kamekura International Design Award) from all previous exhibitions, each reflective to their times, were gleaned from the Museum of Modern Art, Toyama's collection and placed on display, arranged starting with the newest and tracing back to the first competition. Rare video coverage of the judging sessions, etc. was also on display, rounding out a retrospective of the IPT's 30-year history. An introduction was also presented to the IPT posters calling for entries and promoting the triennial, created through the years since the museum's opening by Kazumasa Nagai.
