Good 50x70 | 2009

The project that helps social communication

scadenza 1 aprile 2009

Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations. Barack Obama, 2009.

The voice of hope in 2009 comes from America. While we all wait to see whether Barack Obama can turn his fine rhetoric into actions, Good 50x70 aims to follow his example by addressing seven critical issues threatening the earth and all its inhabitants and inviting the global creative community to produce posters on the briefs from our seven charities.

As of today, the 1st of February, our briefs on Child Labour, Climate Change, Healthcare Deprivation, HIV/AIDS, Nuclear Emergency, War on Terror and Women's Rights Deprivation are now online.

We're honoured to be working again with Amref, Amnesty, Emergency, Greenpeace, Lila, Unicef and WWF, whose briefs you can see here. Exactly as before, all you have to do is choose one (or more) brief that inspire you, create a poster, upload it and it'll be entered into the Good 50x70 database. All the posters will be provided to our endorsing charities for their potential use, and the the best 30 responses to each brief, as selected by our jury, will be exhibited around the world and published in a catalogue.

This year we welcome Ruth Klotzel, Santiago Pol and Svetlana Fadina to our jury. We'd like to thank them, all our jury members and endorsing charities for the time and effort they give to Good 50x70. It wouldn't happen without you. Here's to a successful Good 50x70. We might not change any of the critical issues we're tackling in this year's edition, but together we can start.
