“A poster for integration” is the new title of the Posterheroes competition 2019, that asks the international creative community to express their vision on the theme of integration by creating a poster or a kinetic poster.

Favini joins in partnership with PLUG association for the design and organization for Posterheroes, the notable graphics competition, which is now in its eighth edition since 2010.

The brief is “A poster for integration”

We live in a globalized society, in which all of us in everyday life encounter different cultures, languages and customs.

Integration, acceptance and diversity in contemporary society.

In the integration process, migrant and host are temporary actors within the same scenario albeit with different roles. In this context, it should be our aim to promote dialogue, human rights, protection of peace, sustainable development and, above all, global citizenship.

Considering migration as a “transfusion” of ideas, cultures and “knowledge”, the Posterheroes competition intends to make people aware of the issues of integration and acceptance as well as enhancing “diversity” as a resource on which to build our communities of “tomorrow”. It is asking the international graphic community to express their vision through a static or kinetic poster that reflects on these issues.
