Posterheroes 2021: Digital Inclusion, Becoming e-Quals.

PLUG association is hosting their tenth Posterheroes contest and invites submissions of poster designs on the subject: Digital Inclusion, Becoming e-Quals.

Posterheroes is an international contest about social communication that calls for posters (70×100 cm) about social and environmental issues. For the 10th contest, Posterheroes invites the creative international community to create a poster representing digital equality.

Participants have the chance to win a cash prize, take part in many exhibitions and events and be featured in Posterheroes publications and editorial projects. The total cash prize fund for 2021 is 2,500 Euro.

Details about this year’s theme are available on the official website.

Recent global events prompted a new way to view normality, it’s called the “New Normal”. The digital approach completely changed too, and it’s up to us to adapt, coexist every day, and create conditions for organic, systemic development in our society.

The pandemic amplified the urgency to contemplate a topical issue: Digital Inclusion. That is, all activities aimed at ensuring that individuals and communities can equally access and benefit from opportunities related to computer systems and telecommunications.

And so, we ask: “Are we becoming e-Quals?”.

The winning posters are selected by a selection panel comprising international experts in the field of illustration, animation, arts, visual communication.

The Posterheroes contest, created in 2010 by PLUG association, is open to everyone and aims to involve especially young people and international artists.

The 2021 edition is hosted in collaboration with the International Labour Organization ITC-ILO.
