The 4th Block International Poster Triennial/Kharkiv, Ukraine

Designers, artists, and creatives, Association of Graphic Designers “The 4th Block” is honored to invite you to participate in their 12th International Eco-poster Triennial.

This is the time to reimage our humanity, our relationship with the world, and with one another.

More details about to theme are available on the official website.

The war in Ukraine continues. The city of Kharkiv, like so many other cities in Ukraine is under attack, suffering daily bombardments from Russian shells and rockets. But despite it all, we’ve decided not to break the 30-year-long tradition and hold the 12th International Eco-Poster Triennial “The 4th Block” in April 2024. We will not be disheartened. We choose not to live in a world that is full of fear, savagery, and death. Even in the darkest of times—in the age of uncertainty and dread, we must rethink our present, and fight tirelessly against all evil, so that we can create a just future—the one without cruelty and war.

This is especially important right now when we are all on the brink of another world war, which could have catastrophic consequences and threaten the very existence of our planet.

Poster designs are accepted in the following three categories:

  1. REIMAGE THE FUTURE — Fantasy posters, posters-prototypes that sketch out our imaginary future, posters about justice, freedom, and love. (AI posters are welcome)
  2. REIMAGE HUMANITY’S PLACE IN THE GLOBAL ECOSYSTEM — Posters about ecocide caused by wars. Wars bring suffering and terrible long-term aftereffects not only to people but also to the natural environment, and to all living things on our planet.
  3. REIMAGE MARIUPOL — This is a special poster campaign — “Mariupol: 86 days of strength”. It honors the defenders of Mariupol who fought an impossible battle and gave hope to all of Ukraine in its darkest and bloodiest hour.

Members of the international jury are yet to be announced.

The “4th Block” triennial was founded in 1991 in Kharkiv (Ukraine). The founder is Oleg Veklenko.
