6th International Poster Contest
by Graphic Stories
Graphic Stories invites all the creative people to take part in the international poster contest titled “Tolerance”.
The international contest is part of the 8th Conference on Graphic Design and Visual Communication, Graphic Stories, that will take place between 18-20 of March 2022.
Since the era of the European Enlightenment, tolerance has emerged as a necessary feature for the harmonious coexistence of people and is a consequence of the anthropocentric ideas of freedom, democracy, equality, equity, and the timeless struggles to eliminate all forms of discrimination, social, racial, nationalist, for the freedom of speech and thought.
Tolerance is about our willingness to allow people to think, express and act even in ways that we do not agree with. Tolerance for everything different, for different thoughts or ideas, has as its goal the creative approach and progress, both individually and collectively. Tolerance is the springboard for a society free of bigotry, intolerance, racism, nationalism and all forms of discrimination and social inequality. It is at the same time the cornerstone of cultivating mutual respect and solidarity, cooperation and consensus and the antidote to marginalization and social exclusion.
The participants in the competition are invited to visualize their thoughts, ideas, and concerns regarding the theme of the competition which is: “Tolerance”. The posters created should highlight the fact that tolerance is an important moral virtue that inspires not only respect for and acceptance of diversity, but also an attitude of life that can contribute to both individual happiness and well-being, as well as in the harmonious and peaceful coexistence of all the people on Earth.
