The Finnish Association of UNICEF called for graphic design students to design posters for children in bold, simple and interesting formats. The works will be a message of hope to young people and adults to participate. The task was to find a fresh visual language and to try to avoid the stereotypes associated with the topic.
The poster theme of the competition is to reduce child mortality. The aim is to get young adults to realize that international collaboration is yielding significant results and that no child will die of preventable causes. The poster will also inspire young people to donate and help this cause.
