After the biennial focus on food, fostering the debate on behavioral and societal changes connected to nutrition education and food life-cycle, this year Poster competition named Posterheroes has chosen to deal with the right to be a couple, without any restrictions of gender, sexual orientation, nationality or religion.
What are the boundaries of the right to love? What are the meaning and the conditions under which two persons can be considered as a couple? These will be the main topics in the open discussion involving the whole international creative community during this new contest edition.
This year in partnership with Favini, Posterheroes looks for students, graphic lovers and professional designers to prove their abilities drawing a poster 50×70 cm that will be judged by an international team of experts composed by some of the most relevant professionals in graphic design and communication.
Files must comply the following technical features (upon pain of exclusion):
– size: 50×70 cm – 150dpi (2953×4134 pixels);
– max 5MB;
– vertical layout;
– JPG or PDF format.
The latest international news and events (sometimes tragic) in this field are not random and they have deeply affected the social, political and ideological debate, influencing also the setting of agenda by media and institutions.
After the participation deadline, the jury will select the forty best proposals. Evaluation criteria for selection will be: originality, quality in relation to the efficacy of the message and emotional aspects expressed by the posters. Files will be automatically renamed to guarantee anonymity, during the process of evaluation by the jurors.
There is no entry fee for this Poster competition !
The Posterheroes contest is open to individuals or groups (in this case a single representative will be required) with the submission of up to three entries each.
Posterheroes does not award any monetary prizes. Selected posters will be published on www.posterheroes.org and they will be displayed on the social media channels of PLUG Association and Posterheroes (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube).
Selected works will be published on the catalogue of the initiative and will become part of the shows and future exhibition events which Posterheroes/PLUG will organize at the end of the contest.
Selected posters will be announced by the end of November 2016.
