The 4 Tomorrow Association has announced the Poster for Tomorrow 2016 competition and published this year’s creative brief on the theme “Make Extremism History“.
Poster for Tomorrow 2016 is about the extremes in society, politics, the environment, the distribution of wealth and every issue that we face as a world, not just religious extremism. About the individuals who dominate public debate simply by shouting the loudest and listening the least, who leave little room for debate or any shades of opinion except for right or wrong and me versus you. About climate change deniers, people who refuse to let refugees into their country or anyone who discriminates on the basis of gender, nationality, sexual preference or religion.
The Call for Entries opens 10 March 2016 and closes after four (4) months, on 10 July 2016. Out of all received posters, one hundred (100) will be selected and exhibited around the world.
Here are more details about the 2016 creative brief, from the official website:
Today’s extremists include the 62 people in the world who have as much money as half the world’s population, the industrialists influencing the environmental policies that threaten the future of the human race, the bankers creating an artificially inflated economy for the benefit of speculators and the detriment of everyone else, and the people who use religion as a reason to inspire hatred, violence or war.
The fact of the matter is that in 2016 national boundaries are less and less meaningful. No matter where we live, we are all equally powerless in the face of conflict or environmental disaster. We need to realize that we live in this world together – and that the best way to create a better world for everybody is by working together ‘for tomorrow’.
4 Tomorrow is hosting Poster for Tomorrow annually since 2009.
Last year, the competition received 4,980 posters from all parts of the world, of which 100 were exhibited worldwide.
