13th Plaktivat Poster Design Competition: Solidarity

The 13th Plaktivat competition on the topic of “Solidarity” is open. Take part and co-create a better living environment!

The competition is open to all creators, individuals as well as agencies and companies, who want to help create our common living environment.

The winning poster will be printed and published on 500 TAM-TAM city posters across Slovenia. It will be automatically entered in the competitions of the Slovenian Advertising Festival SOF and the Brumen biennial of Slovenian Design. The winner receives Plaktivat’s MEGAFON and a winning plaque.

The creative challenge is activating individuals to proactively deliberate on the social concept of solidarity, which became even more jeopardised due to the pandemic. Details about the competition theme are published on the official website and within the available creative brief.

At a time of growing conflicts between people of opposing views and lifestyles, which are further bolstered by populisms, radicalisms, the media, and all manner of algorithms, our previous definition of solidarity is being tested and with it, the democratic and civilizational values upon which Europe and most of the western world are founded. If we add to this the extremely individualised nature of our society, which all too often places the individual and their personal freedom ahead of the interests of the community, the social consensus upon which solidarity is based is in peril.

The pandemic took this issue to its extreme. What is therefore that lowest common denominator, which remains acceptable to us as a society and is it strong enough to ensure that solidarity as we knew it perseveres in the future? We believe that everyone involved, even if they hail from opposing (enemy) camps, should strive for this. Among them, creative industries, culture, and art play a particularly important role.

One applicant may submit no more than 3 posters.

Results will be published during 2021 via Facebook and Twitter.

All participants will receive a e-plaque commemorating their participation, awarded by the organizer of Plaktivat, TAM-TAM Institute.
