Good 50x70 is a free-to-enter poster competition, the overall theme of which kind of reminds me of my final project at University, oh so many moons ago ...
Anyway, it struck me that this might be a good project for the design students out there – bulk out your portfolio, show potential employers how motivated you are with an extra-curricular project and contribute to a good cause, all in one fell swoop!
Here’s what it’s about:
“There are seven briefs from seven charities on seven issues that affect thousands of people around the world. All you have to do is pick a topic that inspires you and submit a poster on that theme. 210 posters will be selected by our jury of leading designers and exhibited around the world and published in a catalogue, but more importantly they’ll be presented to the charities for their use as a potential campaign.”
If you’re interested you’ve got ages – until midnight on 20th April 2008 – to submit your work. There are more details and info about how to enter on the Good 50x70 website.
And no, I can’t fathom why it’s called ‘Good 50x70’ either ... but no matter.
