Art can lead so many interconnected and parallel lives. I once heard someone say there is no difference between the sounds musicians make with their instruments and the movements dancers make with their bodies. The dance is just the music in another form, dance is music incarnate and both give life to each other.

No other art contest captures the beauty of music’s many inspirations like International Reggae Poster Contest (IRPC). Since it’s launch in 2012, IRPC has received more than 2,000 submissions, from over 90 countries. This poster art isn’t just the artists’ creations, but reggae in another form; Reggae’s visual incarnate. It’s like IRPC artists are Reggae devotees come to set the visual life of Reggae free.

Given IRPC’s mission, each poster not only gives new life to Reggae, but says something about what that life means. Every poster is a testament to the IRPC mission of, “celebrating Reggae’s positive impact around the world,” and bringing a new cultural beacon to Kingston, Jamaica in the form of a Reggae Hall of Fame. Proceeds from IRPC’s travelling “World-A-Reggae Exhibition” benefit the historic Alpha Boys’ School of Kingston, Jamaica, which has provided music education to underserved children for more than 100 years. Alpha Boys’ School is often called the “Cradle of Reggae” because without it, Reggae may never have existed.

An accomplished panel of jurors, including Luba Lukova and Yossi Lemel, have curated the top entries. While many followers outside of Jamaica may journey into Reggae through Bob Marley, IRPC artists understand and appreciate the music’s diversity. Some posters show Bob Marley in new way as with the 2013 winner, Balazs Pazkodi from the United Kingdom. Many others think completely outside the Marley box, representing Reggae’s other legends and spiritual and political themes of the music.

As IRPC continues to grow in popularity, Reggae will lead millions more lives around the world in poster format, bringing new energy to whatever space they inhabit. The World-A-Reggae Exhibition is now on display at the Embassy of Jamaica in Washington, DC at 1520 New Hampshire Avenue, NW through December 20th.

The top artists from 2012 and 2013 touch upon several themes, but some of our favorite visual incarnates represented freedom, legends, lions and Alpha Boys’ School.
