The call for entries opens on March 10, 2016.
Poster For Tomorrow announces its 8th annual call for entries for social communication poster designs. The project has been running its yearly contest since2009, and for the last seven years poster for tomorrow has focused on basic human rights, from freedom of expression to the universal right to healthcare.
The theme for the 2016 edition is Make Extremism History. It's not just about religious extremism. It's about extremes in society, politics, the environment, the distribution of wealth and every issue that we face as a world. Today's extremists include the 62 people in the world who have as much money as half the world's population, the industrialists influencing the environmental policies that threaten the future of the human race, the bankers creating an artificially inflated economy for the benefit of speculators and the detriment of everyone else, and the people who use religion as a reason to inspire hatred, violence or war.
The fact of the matter is that in 2016 national boundaries are less and less meaningful. No matter where we live, we are all equally powerless in the face of conflict or environmental disaster. We need to realize that we live in this world together – and that the best way to create a better world for everybody is by working together 'for tomorrow'.
Open to designers and design students from all over the world.
Poster for Tomorrow will reward the best 100 designs, as selected by the jury, by including them in the Make Extremism History exhibition as part of an event called "a day for tomorrow", that will be held in a series of cities around the world on 10th December 2016 to celebrate the anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.
A book about the exhibition will be published. The selected participants are entitled to a copy of the book free of charge.
