9th Plaktivat Competition for Urban Poster Design - International Poster competition
The call for applications is now open!
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: TAM-TAM, in collaboration with Diabetes Institute of Ljubljana (Slovenia), is hosting its 9th Plaktivat competition for poster titled “There is no Diabetes. But there Is” with aim to find a visual message that will encourage people to approach diabetes with deadly seriousness, as this disease is neither seen, felt, or painful until it is too late.
The 9th Plaktivat competition for an urban poster design broaches the subject of the disease, which represents an ever-growing danger to modern society.
The competition titled “There is no Diabetes. But there Is” is organized by TAM-TAM in collaboration with Zavod Diabetes (Diabetes Institute).
The aim of the current Plaktivat design competition is to find a visual message that will encourage people to approach Diabetes with deadly seriousness, as this disease is neither seen, felt, or painful until it is too late.
According to latest data from the United Nations over 400 million people are suffering from diabetes, even though the organization proclaimed this disease an epidemic already in 2006, when the number was still “just” 246 million. There are at least 130.000 diagnosed diabetics in Slovenia, with an additional 100.000 inhabitants at risk of contracting the disease.
In spite of the medical advances of the 21st century, diabetes spreads ever wider. Aside from the great number of diabetics, what is also disturbing is that many people live with diabetes unaware of their condition. Complications due to diabetes can develop even before a diagnosis is made and can greatly diminish the quality of life or even shorten our lives. The onset of the disease can be accelerated particularly through ill-advised living habits (unhealthy diet, smoking, and alcohol), a lack of exercise, and poor economic social conditions.
There is no entry fee for this competition!
It's free to enter!
Who can enter?
The competition is open to all creatives, individuals, agencies, or legal entities, who wish to contribute in the creation of their living environment.
The winning poster will be printed and displayed on 500 TAM-TAM city posters across Slovenia. It will also be entered in in the competitive sections of the Slovene Advertising Festival (SOF) and the Biennial of Visual Communications of Slovenia. The winner will receive Plaktivat’s MEGAFON and a winning plaque.
