Posterheroes: A Poster for Integration
The new call of the international posters contest
This is the eighth edition of the contest of posters promoted by the Italian cultural association PLUG and FAVINI the leading global producer of innovative graphics specialties for the packaging of products.
The topic of the edition of 2019 is social integration. How important are the notions of migration and diversity for a nation? What do we mean when we talk about fighting the fear of immigrants? Starting from these questions, the organizers of the contest aim at sparking a global dialogue.
Like the previous editions, the creative community is mustered to express its message through a 70 × 100 cm poster. This year’s big news is the possibility to participate in the contest also with a kinetic poster, beside the traditional one. A kinetic poster is a motion graphic design artwork. The motion elements could be related to the typography, to the visual part (images, shapes, colors) or to the layout. Participants will have the chance to submit on www.posterheroes.org their poster and/or kinetic poster from April 8th until June 16th, 2019, doing their best to express their opinion on welcoming and integration.
Among the news of this edition there will be an exhibition of the selected posters and kinetic posters at Torino Graphic Days 4, the international festival of visual design that will be held in Italy (3rd to 6th October, 2019, Turin). Like last year, the first classified of the each category (traditional and kinetic poster) will win a cash prize of 2.500 Euro.
