Today, Oxfam Australia’s Design For Change launched a poster competition in conjunction with Landor, calling on Australian designers to use their creative work to highlight gender injustice.

 

 

 

The Gender Inequality #feelswrong campaign calls on the design community to create a poster that expresses issues surrounding gender inequality.

Tida Tippapart, Oxfam Australia’s Design For Change coordinator, says women perform 60 percent of the world’s work, yet only earn 10 percent of the world’s income, and 70 percent of people living in poverty are women.

“A conversation about gender is incredibly important, and designers can help us push for gender justice to be part of our culture. Our #feelswrong poster competition has been created to compel designers to be part of a generational movement to end gender inequality,” said Tippapart.

Judges will be looking for diversity and original ideas that show an intelligent and arresting perspective on gender equality. There will be eight winning submissions selected, which will appear as part of an exhibition with Oxfam Australia in Melbourne for the national gender conference in October 2015.

Submissions are open until Tuesday 30th June, 2015
