The topic in 2020 is: “To Richness of Life”
Our Planet is the only one we know of that holds life. Due to the distance to the sun, to the atmosphere, to water, life has developed at this planet. One trillion different living species. What a richness of life!
To us humans the richness of life contains everything from being born, being loved, being able to see, to act, to understand, to experience, to protect and defend, to give and receive, to laugh and to cry, to stick together, to sing and play, to work and create and so much more.
The idea with this year’s competition is to create posters as artful expressions that can be used locally and worldwide to share the joy and understanding of the
Richness of Life
Posters that can encourage experiencing and strengthening the love for life at this our planet. Posters that can inform, appeal and mobilise for the joy of life. and how to care for all of this very precious life that we all share and shape every day.
Or posters that reminds us to live life living and to give back what we take, to care and protect and to enjoy life and change the future for the better for our Planet Earth. With this theme we share the richness of life and a vision of a better future for the planet and all of us. So, let’s share our visions, wishes, ideas and thoughts with each other through artistic expressions.
The format: portrait / upright
The idea with the competition is to create artistic posters that can be used locally and worldwide to communicate, connect and deliver a message – a message which you find important.
This year we want all posters to have the same basic form: like an A4 page (or A3, A2) but this year upright (portrait) same direction as the posters on this page.
The technique: PAPER CUTTINGS
This year we will use a method of cutting or tearing out in paper. The paper cuttings/collage support that the form and shape and colours stand clear and can be seen from afar. You can either use papers of different colours, or you can paint white paper in the colours you want and then cut out the forms you need. You can also work with just one color and then use the contrasts.
