Posterheroes is a project by Plug, a non-profit cultural association. Plug was born from the synergy of people with different skills and experience, united in the common aim of raising the creative community and stimulate the debate on issues with strong social impact. Behind the scenes there are graphic designers, architects, students and other professionals.

The jury is made up of international experts of graphic arts and communications. Plug reserves itself the right to communicate on its website any possible changes to these conditions.

Feeding is the planet source of life, essential for a sustainable development based on the health of all living beings. The right to have an healthy, safe and sufficient feeding is at the centre of the social debate and policies. Food is closely related to the environment, nature, territory and the species that live in it, because the quality and the authenticity of food are linked with the agriculture and breeding. A proper behavior towards our territory means respecting ourselves.

The new food system we must pursue is a system in which food becomes a renewable matter, where the resources go from one usage to another without waste and maintaining a close link with the people and the territory. This year’s edition of Posterheroes is part of a two-year project focused on systemic food, which aims at investigating the theme of food in its social, environmental and economic nature.


There are no age, nationality or profession limits, the contest is open to all, except for the organizers of Posterheroes, Plug associates, the jury or any of their family members.


Best entries selected by the jury will be published on the catalog of the initiative and will become part of the itinerant shows and future events which Posterheroes or Plug will organize at the end of the contest. Selected posters will be published on the website.
