Poster for Tomorrow 2011 Call for Entries

Every year poster for tomorrow chooses a basic human right to draw attention to. Then it invites the global design community to make posters on this theme that are exhibited around the world on International Human Rights Day, 10 December.

People from poster for tomorrow passionately believe that one poster is a start, but one hundred, one thousand, constitute a movement that can’t be denied.

This year we’re fighting for the right to education for all. This might not seem like the most exciting or controversial issue, but it’s one of the utmost importance.

Objective

Poster for tomorrow is an independent, non-profit international project whose goal is to encourage people, both in and outside the design community, to make posters to stimulate debate on issues that affect us all. In the previous two editions the project has received over 4,000 posters from 81 countries and hosted more than 90 exhibitions in 5 continents.

This year poster for tomorrow chose to fight for the right to education for all. If you’d like to help, design a poster on the theme “the Right to education” and submit it.

Prizes

The best posters as selected by jury of graphic designers will be published in a book and exhibited around the world on a day for tomorrow, 10 December 2011.
