WHY Graphic Design Festival is calling for poster design submissions for its “Physically Distant, Socially Connected” poster contest.
With this poster contest inspired by the COVID-19 pandemic, WHY Graphic Design Festival in Florence invites all creatives to contemplate the notion of physical and social distancing, to give tribute to the moments of connection and solidarity, and to celebrate our unbreakable human unity.
Participation free of charge and open worldwide both to design students and to professionals, without age limit.
Since early March, the phrase that could be heard everywhere was the call to keep the social distance. To stay away from each other is the hardest thing for human beings, as it goes against our nature, especially when it comes to difficult times. When we are afraid, or under stress, we lean on our beloved ones, and being present for one another in moments of hardship is one of the most important functions of community. Artists, illustrators and designers are invited to make a visual statement about their challenges and hopes.
The winner will receive a free weekend accommodation at the Student Hotel in Florence at the time of their choice, a package of newly released font families from Zetafonts worth 500 Euro, and the possibility to present and exhibit their work during WHY Graphic Design Festival.
The winning poster will be announced during the 4th edition of the WHY Graphic Design Festival, scheduled for 12-15th November, 2020 at The Student Hotel in Florence.
