People are not all alike…
In recent years, our expectations, dreams, and concerns are now very different from the past. Today, health, environment, economy, socio-cultural problems, and many similar issues affect our daily lives deeply; they change us. As just one of the problems peculiar to this age, with the widespread use of communication tools, relationships also become virtual. As a result, while people come together on social media, they also become individualized and experience unexpected conflicts and separations. For this reason, by centralizing a unifying concept – nondiscriminate, we invited designers from different countries to share their social and individual perspectives through their posters to take a closer look at the events that affect us. We believe that what we need in today’s world is to listen carefully and understand each other better.
Submitted designs must not have been previously exhibited, published or awarded. Also, designs should not contain any logo, institution name or sign.
A verbal message (title, slogan, etc.) that supports the visual design can be used on the posters. The language of the messages to be used on the designs participating in the exhibition can be Turkish or one of the local languages of the participants. However, if one of the local languages is used, the English version must also be present.
Each applicant can participate with a maximum of 3 posters.
The International Posterist Exhibition will be repeated every year with different themes, different perspectives from different parts of the world.
