The Posterheroes, international communication and poster competition has been launched in its 8th edition!
Organised by the cultural association PLUG, Posterheroes is an international competition about social design and social communication asking to the international creative community to express powerful messages through a poster 50×70 cm or 70×100 cm about social and environmental issues.
Every year, Posterheroes invites students, professional designers or people passionate in graphic design, to realize a poster about topics of social interest. The current edition, “Posterheroes: a poster for integration”, has a brand new format. This contest subject - "A Poster for Integration" intends to make people aware of integration and acceptance issues, and to enhance “diversity” as a resource upon which to build “tomorrow’s” communities.
You can participate in the contest with a regular poster or/and a kinetic one.
Creative people around the world are therefore called to express their sensitivity and their ideas through the creation of a graphic poster, sized 50×70 cm or 70×100 cm, 300 dpi, max 10 MB, vertical layout, JPG or PDF format (for Kinetic posters: H264; MPEG-4; AVC). Artworks must be designed to be printed. If the graphic work contains text, this must necessarily be written in English.
All the works will be judged by a selection panel composed by some of the most relevant experts of the graphic design and communication field.
An international panel, composed by some of the most relevant experts of the graphic design and communication field, will select the finalists of both sections: 40 projects for the Poster section and 10 for the Kinetic Poster section. The Organizers will then select the winner of each category.
The winner will be invited to participate in the inauguration of the exhibition and the award ceremony, to be held during the festival Torino Graphic Days 4.
