• About •
STOP HATE / POSTER SHOW is an anti-violence poster competition hosted by Malta Festival Poznań 2019 and Poznań Wolny od Nienawiści (Poznań Free of Hate). Make use of your artistic invention and put an end to the evil of hate! Your works will be helpful in launching a social campaign to stop hate and to promote tolerance, empathy and solidarity!
Poster is the most concise and expressive form of transmitting ideas, attitudes, messages and emotions. In the hands of sensitive artists it becomes an ideal tool for commenting on reality and for diagnosing it.
The organisers draw attention to the rising level of negative social emotions. Hate incited by politicians and the accompanying verbal and physical aggression underlie such dangerous phenomena as fascism, racism, xenophobia and discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, religion or ethnicity.
Each Participant may submit up to 1 work created in the years 2016–2019.
Requested paper size is B1 (70 X 100 cm). You need to send your work to firstname.lastname@example.org via wetransfer.com in one of the following formats: PDF, EPS, TIFF.
