Tokyo Designers Week, Japan, together with designboom promotes an international graphic design competition.
Participation is open to students from every country in the world, free registration required.
In the time is takes you to read this call for entries, one of our planet’s unique species will become extinct. By this time next year, over 50,000 will have disappeared forever. This graphic competition focuses on recovering and conserving our imperiled species.
WHAT CAN GRAPHIC DESIGN DO TO HELP?
Global biodiversity is being lost much faster than natural extinction due to changes in land use, unsustainable use of natural resources, invasive alien species, climate change and pollution among others. This is usually brought about through patterns of human activity. Our goal is to raise awareness and stimulate action and funding for broader conservation efforts to reverse the alarming trend of human-caused extinctions that threaten the ecosystems we all share.
