Posterheroes is an International social communication contest, in which people are asked to produce 50x70 posters.The projects need to be based on the themes of consumption and of conscious fruition of energetic and material resources, underlining the role of the user as an important actor in the global consumption/saving equilibrium.

The contest is a way for young people and for the creative community to express their opinion about the resources' fruition for a sustainable future. The notice is open to anyone and is especially aimed to involve young people and the National and International creative community.

Which kind of consumption model do you propose? Which kind of scenarium do you imagine for an aware fruition of the energetic and material resources?

The sensitization to action of the single person can be useful to the entire community. The water, soil, goods, fossil fuels, (as oil and methane), consumption meets our basic needs, and is the way that allows us to perform our daily activities.
