Deadline: 10 July 2012
Open to: individuals or teams regardless of age, worldwide
Award: ten designs, as chosen by the jury, will become part of the permanent collection of the design museums worldwide
Every year poster for tomorrow chooses a basic human right to draw attention to. The global design community is then invited to make posters on this theme that are exhibited around the world on International Human Rights Day, December 10th. We passionately believe that one poster is a start, but one hundred, one thousand, constitute a movement that can’t be denied. In this perspective, we are proud to announce that the sponsorship committee of this current edition includes leading female figures such as Michelle Bachelet, former President of Chile and Executive Director of UN Women, and Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO.
But why gender equality?
What makes gender equality, well, different from all the other possible topics?
The condition of women has undergone undeniable improvements during the last century. But these improvements haven’t happened everywhere and even where they have been the strongest, well, they are far from being strong enough.
Gender inequality still lingers unchallenged: it’s one of those things that are hard to see precisely because they are right in front of our eyes. That’s why we ask all of you to see beyond the status quo and imagine a different future. We need gender equality now, because more opportunities for women are more opportunities for us all.
The best posters as selected by a jury of graphic designers will be published in a book and exhibited around the world on poster for tomorrow day, 10 December 2012.
The contest is open to individuals or teams regardless of age, who share passion about graphic design.
The goal of poster for tomorrow is to create the best posters addressing our chosen theme. We are a non-profit organisation and our goals are altruistic, therefore we don’t offer any monetary prizes. But every designer of the 100 posters selected by a jury receives a free copy of the catalogue and thanks to our sponsors we are able to offer some prizes:
Ten designers, as chosen by the jury, will be awarded subscriptions to the graphic design magazine étapes.
Ten designs, as chosen by the jury, will become part of the permanent collection of the following design museums: Canadian Museum for Human Rights (Canada), Center for the Study of Political Graphics (US), Dansk Plakatmuseum (Denmark), Design Museum Gent (Belgium), Graphic Design Museum (The Netherlands), Lahti Poster Museum (Finland), Les Arts Decoratifs (France), Museum für Gestaltung, (Switzerland), Wilanow Poster Museum (Poland), Victoria and Albert Museum (UK).
More prizes may become available during the competition. We would like to thank all our sponsors for their generosity in providing us with their prizes.
