Call for Posters - Madrid Gráfica

CALL FOR ENTRIES

MADRID

POSTER EXHIBITION

 

 

DIMAD and Madrid City Council, supported by the Business Forum for Madrid, call on all graphic designers to take part in the first open poster exhibition of the event “Madrid Gráfica” with the motto The Light City to be held in September / October 2017.

We are excited about the amazing amount of posters coming from all over the world these days, and for this reason, we would like to apologize in advance for the delay in uploading them to the web.

 

Though, as a consequence, we have decided to extend the deadline for the delivery of The Light City posters from 15th till 30th of August; thus, facilitating the work and participation of even more designers in the summer call.

Madrid Gráfica 2017
Open Call for Posters
“The Light City / La Ciudad Ligera”

Content and motto

The content of this first open call will move around the concept of Light City. This should be both the content and motto to be included -in the chosen language- in all the posters by the author or authors.

 

 

The goal of the Contest is twofold:

– The first, to show graphics and its practitioners’ capacities to deal with issues that concern society and to do so in an

appealing way.

 

– The second objective is to visually spread the Motto and the content of the call, in this case The Light City, and to

successfully get the posters to transmit concepts relating to better urban mobility expressed openly and freely by the

author or authors, following the definition included under the terms of this call.

 

All the posters will be exhibited at the Central de Diseño de Matadero Madrid.

 

The international jury will select the best 100 posters exhibited so that they can be exhibited in the streets of Madrid.

 

Likewise, the Jury will select the poster which, in their view, best represents to objective of the Exhibition Light City 2017.

It will be shown as the winner in the exhibition and in the press release after the event.
