Organizing committee of Ad Black Sea 2017 together with Georgian National Tourism Administration announce the Print contest: create the poster, which will inspire and encourage people to visit Batumi. Winner will get 2 full passes to a festival program of the third international advertising festival Ad Black Sea.

Batumi is one of the most distinguished tourist destinations on the Black Sea. Batumi's juxtaposition of ancient and modern architecture, its historical port, serene botanical garden, Seaside Boulevard, European squares, and streets — not to mention its world-class hotels, casinos, restaurants, cafes, and bars — make up the face of modern Georgia.

It is important to note that in 2012 American Academy of Hospitality Sciences nominated Batumi as the best tourist destination of the year.
In the second half of the 20th century, European architects flocked to Batumi and designed numerous unique architectural designs.

In addition, modern Batumi is a cultural center in Georgia hosting numerous international festivals with the participation of famous musicians and artists.
