Poster Clash 2010

Poster Clash is a new breed of poster competition. Not only will a select panel of judges moderate the entries, but the final decisions are in your hands with head-to-head voting online and at the Poster Clash Main Event, 18 March 2010.

A national panel of judges will judges all the entries and narrow down the field to 64 posters to contend in the Clash. The judging will be based on the individual style and taste of the judge, as well as completion of the requirements.

Those 64 contestants will enter an online competition where the public will be able to cast their votes in a head-to-head match up system drawn at from the results of the judging process.

Objective

The concept for this year’s Poster Clash is the line: “Change one thing

From the simplest action of changing to compact florescent bulbs, to more in-depth changes such as political parties and life habits, motivating change in visual communication is one of the most basic and fulfilling aspects of the communication profession.

Use this poster platform to engage, educate and drive change in your viewer’s world through the use of type and imagery.
