Societies on the Move, Graphic Design Competition aims to stimulate the imagination with a cosmopolitan and multi-ethnic outlook for society.

Until a few decades ago the Guarani people, led by an elder tribesman who had a vision, traveled long distances, travelling together with their old people and their young children too, in order to find "land without evil", a favorable place to settle when the original place where they had lived no longer met their required conditions.
Today, movement of people poses growing challenges to modern society, as the use of common resources and rights are challenged by new sharing needs. At the same time an active and informed citizenship is required, involving respect for the environment; choices on consumption; production dynamics as well as for institutional processes. Creation of any future societies could too start from such vision.

Proposals must be original and unpublished and must be inspired by the theme of this brief. The works can be performed using any technique, manual or digital. All works shall be sent electronically in JPEG, PDF and TIFF formats with 300 dpi resolution, a 70 x 100 cm size, and portrait layout.
