Posterheroes 3 competition
The international communication and social graphic art contest Posterheroes has just launched its third edition.
After dealing with the issues of energy and consumption, with the 2012/2013 edition, Posterheroes proposes a debate on sustainability in the fields of production, health, mobility and public life in cities. Together with the issues of the first two editions, these last ones complete the six characteristics suggested by the European Community as indicators for a Smart City.
This social communication competition, with the patronage of UNESCO, aims at the involvement of the creative community of the world around four issues of global interest - production, health, mobility and public life - in order to stimulate collective consciousness toward a new way of life in the city.
In order to become 'smart' our cities have to become places where the resources will be optimized and improved, they have to become an expression of new habits. They will not change their appearance. Will be the same city as before, but new, accessible, free, clean and transparent.
The creative people around the world are therefore called to express their sensitivity and their clear ideas of evolution through the creation of a graphic poster 50x70.
There is no entry fee.
There are no age, nationality or profession limits, the contest is open to all graphic designers, creative people, illustrators, social communicator, world-changers.
For each categories, the jury, composed by international experts in the field of graphics and communication, will identify the top ten proposals, for a total of 40 selected posters.
After the closure of the contest the posters will be published in the catalog of Posterheroes and they will become part of future exhibitions and events that PLUG will organize. Moreover, the selected posters will be included within the events organized by Biennale Democrazia in order to create a traveling exhibition through the streets of Turin (Italy).
