World Mathematical Year 2000

World Mathematical Year 2000

European Mathematical Society

And the winner is ...


In the spring of 1999, the
European Mathematical Society announced a competition to encourage the idea of creating posters with a mathematical theme that would catch the eye and be representative of mathematics and its uses.

Such ideas can prove valuable in many situations as a way of presenting mathematics to the public.

The direct reason for the competition was, however, to get ideas for suitable  posters to be displayed in subways, and other public places, as one of the events during the World Mathematical Year 2000.
In the announcement of the competition, the EMS offered prizes for the three best proposals, but naturally, the hope was to get many other good proposals than those that would finally be selected for a prize.
And the EMS was not disappointed!
