Featured Competition: ‘Water is Life’ International Student Poster Contest

Take part in the 2011 International ‘Water is Life’ Poster Competition to practice your design skills and publicize the human right to clean water. On July 28, 2010, the United Nations General Assembly incorporated the ‘right to clean water’ in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is spurring the purpose of this competition. Any student in fine arts, design, communication design and architecture participate in the competition, as long as they are enrolled in a state or private art college or university at the time of entering. Graduates can also take part if they completed their studies less than twelve months ago. Prize money will be allocated as follows:

 1st Prize: 5000 Euros

2nd Prize: 3000 Euros

3rd Prize: 2000 Euros  

According to the competition Website, “in addition to the aims outlined above, the competition also provides an opportunity to showcase young creativity from all over the world on a global scale. The one hundred best posters will be presented in travelling exhibitions around the world, accompanied by a comprehensive catalogue with further entries.”
