IFEX Poster Contest: International Day to End Impunity 2011
The International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX) invites all to submit entries for the inaugural International Day to End Impunity 2011 poster contest with the purpose of drawing world’s attention to impunity through these posters that depict impunity in some way. IFEX is the most extensive community of leaders defending and promoting freedom of expression around the world. They share content, analysis and tools on free expression cases and trends, campaign on critical issues, and support collaboration to increase their members’ effectiveness. IFEX members chose the symbolic date of 23 November for the International Day to End Impunity because it’s the anniversary of the Ampatuan massacre, the single deadliest day for journalists in recent history. The purpose of the day is to raise public awareness and showcase the work of organizations working for justice for those being persecuted for practicing their right to freedom of expression. This is the campaign’s first year.
Your design will be posted on the International Day to End Impunity Facebook page. Members of the public will be invited to vote on the posters from 7-21 November. The public’s top 10 posters (as determined by the number of “likes” the posters receive) will make up the shortlist, from which the IFEX Clearing House will select the three winners.
The competition is open to everyone from any country, whether or not you’re an established artist, an individual or an organisation. You can submit as many posters as you like.
- First prize: US$500
- Second prize: US$250
- Third prize: US$100
As well, your name and poster will be featured on the International Day to End Impunity website.
All posters must be submitted by email to email@example.com along with your name, address, email and phone number. The file must be submitted in jpeg, in standard poster format (11″ x 17″). Designs may use any form of photography, illustration, collage or typography, provided no copyrights are violated in the design. By entering, you have cleared any material submitted to the competition. IFEX assumes all entries are original and are the works and property of the entrant, with all rights granted therein. IFEX is not liable for any copyright infringement on the part of the entrant and will not become involved in copyright disputes. The deadline for entries is midnight EST on 4 November 2011.
