OECD Poster Competition, Finland

Publish Date: Sep 28, 2015

Deadline: Oct 10, 2015

Event Dates: from Oct 27, 2015 12:00 to Oct 28, 2015 12:00

Poster Competition

The challenge

To create a poster reflecting the challenge of fixing government to include more voices in public decisions and help address growing income inequality. Using the powerful poster format, you are invited to express your unique views and ideas on how we can change the rules so that everyone can have access to better public services (such as schools and healthcare) and a better life (through less unemployment, better jobs and job satisfaction, less discrimination and more opportunities for all). 

The prize

Winning posters will be displayed in an exclusive poster gallery during the OECD Ministerial Meeting in Helsinki on October 27-28, 2015 bringing together ministers and high-level officials from countries around the world. 

To enter

For your poster entry to be eligible, you must be 15-25 years old during the period of the competition (Competition closes on 16 October, 2015).


After the competition closes at midnight on 16 October 2015, qualifying poster submissions will be judged on adherence to the competition challenge through their creativity, originality, message content and overall presentation.

Terms & conditions

Please read the terms and conditions and send a signed declaration along with your entry.

Posters should address one of the following themes:

  • Giving young people a voice in the government decision process.

  • Opportunity for all! (Everyone deserves access to good schools, good health care, good jobs, a decent salary, a healthy environment, etc...)

  • Including more voices and more diverse voices in government decisions creates societies that are fairer to all.

  • Improving everyone’s well-being results in a stronger society than just concentrating on more material wealth (GDP).

  • The negative effects of income inequality on society.

  • An idea for reducing income inequality.

  • Changing the rules to help everyone have access to a better life.

  • Encouraging government to listen to everyone, not just to those with the most power and influence.

  • Getting involved in school, neighbourhood, community or larger organisations to make things better, such as providing better services.

Technical requirements

Posters may be created digitally or traditionally (on paper). If you create a digital poster, the file should be sent to IGPoster@oecd.org in the form of a high-resolution (300 dpi) PDF file (for technical reasons, we can only accept PDF files).

Files sent by email must not exceed 30 MB in size. If your file is larger, you may use transfer services such as wetransfer.com or hightail.com (no subscription is required the last time we checked). 

If you create a traditional handmade poster, you may send it by postal mail to the street address below (please leave plenty of time for delivery prior to the deadline). Make sure that your poster is 100 cm x 70 cm and is appropriately protected when shipped. Please keep in mind that original artwork cannot be returned. You may also send us a digital image of your handmade poster. The resulting image must be of high quality, without glare, shadows, distortion or other aspects affecting reproduction quality if enlarged. 

Digital files must be prepared for a final printing size of 100 cm x 70 cm. The OECD reserves the right to exclude any posters that do not meet the technical requirements.
