In parallel with our commercial activity, and in order to build a bridge between paper and the world of design, they decided to create in 1990 el RAIMA Illustration and Design Competition.

They have already been overcome more than ten editions (appointment is biannual) i more than 4.000 participants, the competition has been consolidated as one of the most important in the State, both for the number of participants and for the quality of the works presented and the endowment of the prizes (€ 5.000 for the first and € 2.500 for the second), without forgetting the great diffusion that each awarded work has, because it becomes the protagonist of the 20.000 calendars of collector that Raima publishes and spreads every year among its customers, suppliers, work team and families.
The theme that should inspire the works is always paper, accompanied by some "universal" motto such as Cinema, Science, Music or Sport. The technique is free, which greatly enriches the participation of designers, illustrators, visual artists, illustrators, etc. Of all ages and with quite different ideas and proposals and that is what we really like to find; creativity, passion and authenticity in every stroke.
The winning work is chosen by a Jury made up of professionals from Design, Fine Arts and Illustration. From the first call we have sought the endorsement of the competent authorities, so in that edition the rules were drafted in accordance with the rules of ICOGRADE (International Council of Graphic Design Associations) with the supervision of one of its founding members, Mr. Amand Domènech (also founder of the Association of Graphic Designers of the FAD, ADG / FAD and the Association for the Creation of the Official Association of Graphic Designers of Catalonia). We have the support of the main bodies in the field of Design and Fine Arts, FAD (Promotion of Arts and Design) and BCD (Barcelona Design Center) and a jury composed of professionals representing the different disciplines involved.
