Competition Details :

The Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology in Warsaw, in cooperation with Academy of Art in Szczecin and Dydo Gallery in Kraków, is hosting the FOR/AGAINST (ZA/PRZECIW) international poster competition for students and recent graduates.

Create a poster showcasing an issue or a phenomenon that is important to you. Show the world what you believe brings a positive change or what you would like to criticise and improve. Your poster can show your support and appreciation for a cause but it can also be a protest.

The finalists of the competition will receive the relevant certificates.
