Posterheroes Look Up to the Future! Contest

Posterheroes proposes a debate on future’s energetic policies, after the decision took by the Italian government to open a new nuclear season, interrupted by the 1987 referendum. The Italian issue opened a deliberation involving the whole international socio-economic and environmental situation.

The Look Up to the Future! contest represents means of communication for young people, who may express their energetic opinions which may then be adopted for a sustainable future.

Best works selected from the jury will be published in a catalogue and they will become part of an itinerant exhibition.

Objective

Should we focus on the development and the distribution of sustainable resources to produce energy, or should we carry on non-sustainable resources? Countries haven’t got the economic resources to undertake both directions at the same time. Would consumers prefer productions of renewable energies spread throughout their countries, structured in a system of competitors, or would they rather prefer nuclear power stations managed by privates controlling the energy cost, moving from oil multinational companies to atomics ones? In what way may citizens could be involved in energetic choices? Is environment still willing to accept projects focused on an outright exploit of natural resources?

Time is running out! Answer with a poster!

Imagine in a poster-project (50x70cm) a possible future of energy productions based on non-sustainable resources (coal, oil, natural gas, hydrocarbon, uranium) or based on the renewable ones (solar, hydraulics, tidal energy, geothermal, from biomasses, hydrogen, wind power, other).

Express your opinion, send awareness messages, suggest new exploits, promote diffusion, incite the debate, the exchange, the knowledge, the involvement.

The jury will evaluate, as positive features of the works, the originality, the quality of execution related to the effectiveness of the message communication, the emotional effects that the poster will be able to express.

Prizes

Best works selected from the jury will be published in the final catalogue and they will become part of an itinerant exhibition and its related events.

Posterheroes will publish, on the official website, any other prize provided by sponsors.
