Crime Stoppers Victoria is combining the launch of its new initiative Say Something with a poster competition and exhibition.
Faced with a lack of young people reporting youth violence, the new initiative aims to get young people speaking out and reporting crimes. Emerging designers (aged 16 – 26) are asked to respond in poster form (AO size) to the campaign theme of ‘Say Something’. The competition will culminate in an exhibition on Wednesday 30 May at Thousand Pound Bend in Melbourne’s CBD, where the finalists’ work will be on display, and the overall winner will be announced.
Entries will be judged by Fiona Sweet (Sweet Creative), Henry Fuller (Sweet Creative) Brendan McKnight (editor, desktop magazine) and Jenny Valentish (editor, Time Out Melbourne) and the overall winner will receive a year’s subscription to desktop magazine and Time Out Melbourne magazine, plus a merchandise pack from Triple R.
Age limit: 16 – 26 years old
Theme: Say something to prevent youth violence
Format: AO Portrait Poster (841mm x 1189mm), JPG, TIFF or PDF no larger than 8MB
Deadline: 5pm, Thursday 24 May
Submit: send your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, contact number and poster title. Finalists will be notified by email by Monday 28 May.
