International Day To End Impunity Poster Contest

A poster about impunity. That’s what IFEX wants from you as we prepare to launch the inaugural International Day to End Impunity on 23 November.

Journalists, media workers, writers and others who speak the truth against power continue to be murdered with impunity in countries from Mexico to Russia, Iraq to Somalia. In our free expression community, impunity consistently ranks among the top concerns and remains a global issue that has defied all borders and political structures.

Fact: More than 500 journalists have been killed and the murderers have gone free in 9 out of 10 cases.

Help draw the world’s attention to impunity by designing a poster that depicts impunity in some way. Watch our International Day to End Impunity trailer for some inspiration!

Favourites will be featured on the International Day to End Impunity website, and the top three winners will receive cash prizes.

All posters must be submitted by email to contest (@) along with your name, address, email and phone number. (This information is for administrative purposes only - please note that entries will be judged blind.)

The file must be submitted in jpeg, in standard poster format (11" x 17"). Please hang on to the originals! We may ask for them later.

Designs may use any form of photography, illustration, collage or typography, provided no copyrights are violated in the design.

By entering, you have cleared any material submitted to the competition. IFEX assumes all entries are original and are the works and property of the entrant, with all rights granted therein. IFEX is not liable for any copyright infringement on the part of the entrant and will not become involved in copyright disputes.

Materials may be reproduced freely by IFEX and/or any of its 95 members. Any material used by IFEX or its members shall carry the designer’s credit line.

You can submit as many posters as you like. There is no entry fee.

The competition is open to everyone from any country, whether or not you’re an established artist, an individual or an organisation.

First prize: USD $500
Second prize: USD $250
Third prize: USD $100

As well, your name and poster will be featured on the International Day to End Impunity website.
