Open Call for Posters
“City Person / Ciudad Persona”

Content and motto

The content of this second open call will move around Humanizing the City. And “Person City” 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 “Person City”, and to

successfully get the posters to transmit concepts relating to the humanizating of the city, following the definition included under the terms of this call.

 

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