2010 Bio-Graphics – Graphic Design Contest

The United Nations declared 2010 to be the International Year of Biodiversity.

In this framework, on October Kaleidoscienza organizes a one-day-event to promote thoughts and ideas on topics concerning the role of biodiversity in our lives.
Kaleidoscienza, in collaboration with Graphicplayers, announce an open call for the international exhibition: ‘2010 Bio-Graphics’.

The call ‘2010 Bio-Graphics’ is open to graphic designers, professional or not, of any age and nationality. Participants are invited to submit their work dealing with the call topic in the form of a poster.

Objective

Submit poster designs on the following topic.

Imagine a future scenario in which biodiversity will be a focal value of society. Rediscovering traditions, connected to family and country habits, to people’s common sense, to the value of sharing, and to the singularity of local areas (composed by human communities and environment) can be regarded as a tool for preserving biodiversity. The technological progress of the future society will enable mankind to recover traditions of past generations.

Unlike what is happening in the last few decades, with reckless consumerism endangering our environment, the integration of technology and traditions will promote the respect of natural environment.

Prizes

The most valuable works will be selected and exhibited during the one-day-event on biodiversity organized by Kaleidoscienza cultural association.
