Poster For Tomorrow, project made by 4 Tomorrow Association, is pleased to announce 11th edition of its graphic design competition for social communication poster designs inviting all designers and design students from all over the world to partecipate.
This year the competition theme is the "Fake News".
The goal of 4 Tomorrow Association is to encourage people, both in and outside the design community, to make posters to stimulate debate on issues that affect us all.
Fake news might feel like a recent development that has only come to prominence since the election of one politician who shall not be named, but the practice of spreading rumours and misinformation is as old as the printed word.
People have always twisted the truth, or simply told lies, to get what they want (or change the world). But now we have the ability to share information faster and wider than ever before. It used to be only a few media outlets or government sources that could shape public thought, but now everyone can.
And unlike the media or government, none of us are held accountable for what we post. As there are few laws or fines that can be thrown at us for posting lies, there is no incentive to act responsibly in the public sphere. Get likes (or votes) first, worry about the consequences later – and why should we when the leader of the free world regularly tweets and says blatant untruths without consequence? Submission requirements:
Designs must be presented in vertical format. Entries must be submitted as JPG files of 2953x4134 pixels at a resolution of 150dpi (corresponding to 50x70 cm in printed size) saved in RGB colour space.
The best 100 designs (selected by the jury) will be rewarded by including them in the “Fake News” exhibition, as part of an event called “Paris Poster Biennale”, that will be held in a series of cities around the world.
This year the judging will take place in partnership with "Conversazioni sul futuro", a project by the association "Diffondiamo idee di valore" with the coordination of Gabriella Morelli, that will take place in Lecce from 22 to 25 October 2020.
There is no entry fee to participate!
This graphic design competition is open to designers and design students from all over the world.
