Short description

Creatives For Future invites you to take part in the 1st edition of their international poster competition about human-caused climate change.

The intention is to raise awareness and cool down our carbon footprint (as well as our handprint).

The this year motto is “Green For Good”. Posters For Future is established as an annual event. Every year, participants are assigned two colors. One color will represent the motto of the year, joining the hues of paper and black. In 2024, that color is green.

Come up with your own slogans, let the illustration take centre stage, allow a photo to say more than 1,000 words. The only limits to your creativity are those set by the printing process of risography.

You can use this year’s motto “Green For Good” as a slogan if you like, but since Creatives For Future are looking forward to receive a diverse variety of posters, you are free in your design and wording – as long as you follow the color requirements and make sure your poster is about climate change.

Some topics to inspire you:

Protecting the climate
Deforestation
Plant extinction
Green energy
Climate and social justice
Urban greening

To ensure equal conditions for all, each participant may enter up to two posters.

The 50 winning posters will be printed and assembled into one giant poster and exhibited in several locations across Germany.

When the posters eventually get printed, organiser will use the risography technique. Risography is an environmentally friendly printing process. The ink is made of rice bran oil, and the master foils are made from hemp fibers. Riso printing only requires a fraction of the energy used by a digital printing press. Similar to screen printing, colour applications and offsets have special characteristics and halftone pattern modulation and colour overlays create new tones. A riso print is never perfect, but that's what makes it so exciting!
