Positive Posters Design Contest

positive2010Do you have graphic design chops and a sunny disposition? Then the Positive Posters design challenge was made for you. Founded in 2009 by Australian graphic designer Nick Hallam, the non-profit international poster competition asks participants to come up with an original poster design based on a different positive theme each year.

The top 30 poster designs are then featured in a gallery exhibition. A group of international judges chooses the winner, who goes on to receive a bevy of cool prizes and some serious exposure on the streets of Melbourne. Hallam and company will make 3,500 prints of the winning poster and slap them up all over the city.

Last year’s contest, under the theme of “change,” drew 339 entries from 53 countries. The winning graphic design by Peter Chmela is shown to the left.

Coming Up With Your Winning Graphic Design.

The theme this year is “A Glass Half Full.” You have until October 9, 2010 to design and submit your poster. The winning poster had to express hope, optimism, and a positive outlook. Need some inspiration? Here are a few sources worth checking out:

  • Images of Hope and HelpThis 2007 photo gallery from the Red Cross is full of some stunning photos. They prove that grand gestures and small moments alike can express optimism.
  • Gig Posters. Here are 50 amazing band posters that are sure to inspire. Great graphic design, good music–it doesn’t get more optimistic than that.
  • Shepard FaireyIf all else fails, go to Shepard Fairey, the original mastermind behind Obama’s “hope” poster.
