The poster naturally plays an important role in propaganda surrounding the Games.  Of the 150 projects submitted, the French Olympic Committee selected two: one by Mr. Jean Droit and the other by Mr. Orsi; 10,000 copies of each were printed in double Colombier format, or 0.80 cm x 1.20 cm. 
Of these 20,000 posters, 12,000 were sent abroad and distributed with the help of the National Olympic Committees, Sporting Federations and Olympic Associations, etc... In France, the posters were distributed by sporting establishments, theater and travel agencies, etc.
