Publish Date: Apr 18, 2016

Deadline: Oct 30, 2016

oster Competition till 30 October, 2016 (CET 00:00 hours).

This year the Council of International Student Poster Competition decided to put accent on the issue of the crisis of the “Identity”. We invite students to do their creative work, make buzz and create messages that will inspire many, to engage maybe few but to contribute to raising the awareness.


“Who am I, where do I come from, what is the simplest way to self-discovery”, those are difficult questions to determine ourselves, to understand our personal identity – which seems to be one of the fundamental human needs. The easiest way to discover ourselves is to see our reflection into others. The goal of this festival is to celebrate diversity on all mentioned questions – that provides us a chance for epic research on this timeless issue disclosure. Is the identity crisis inseparable part of self-discovery or is it imposed on the cross ways of our life? This is maybe a question that has no rational answer, but surely it will propose different interpretations or even further – countless determinations of the Other!

We encourage people, both in and outside the design and cultural community, to join this movement! Try to create and provoke an attention that will grow in to international movement, campaign. Explain/complain/create and achieve higher standards of visual communication and visualize your thinking.

As designers we are obligated to act toward solving problems or pointing out solutions. Therefor we are going to create and provoke an global action, first by inviting students to participate for the competition, then by inviting the professional designers and by several social campaign actions to raise awareness.

Encouraging young talents

The organizer of this competition will continue promoting young artist and their posters around the globe, creating traveling exhibitions in Europe and Asia. One of the goals of this project is to merge the students from world academies and Europe in the territory of the Republic of Macedonia.

“Identity in Crisis” represents a base of cultural interchange, having made new friendships, realizing the importance of tolerance as its major goals. Through the defining of the ideas based on tolerance the young spirit should understand its value and realize the common advantages that this concept offers, building a solid grounds for further promotion of tolerance on global grounds.
