Positive Posters 2011 Competition Call for Entries

The call for entries for the 2011 Positive Posters Competition is closely coming to an end, but there’s still time to submit your entries. This is your chance to be proactive about an issue, that you think is important. This competition is an opportunity to present social, environmental or political issues to a global audience.

For those of you who don’t know, Positive Posters provides a shared platform that encourages designers to be proactive in shaping important issues.

After the deadline, Positive Posters will review the entries and shortlist 30 posters for inclusion in the end of year exhibition in Australia. Besides the exhibition, there are several prizes for the best entries.

Bring Positive Change Through Poster Design

The 2011 Positive Posters brief asks you to design a poster that highlights or exposes an issue specific to your own country, someone else’s or one that is international. It could be social, environmental or political; anything that you believe deserves a global audience and could be better seen or understood.

This is an opportunity for you to make a positive contribution towards an issue by presenting it to a global audience.
