The city of Chicago is holding a “City in a Garden” poster design contest, in an effort to expand awareness of Mayor Emanuel's Sustainable Chicago 2015 action agenda.
The contest, which is based on Sustainable Chicago 2015, a plan that we designed, offers a concrete roadmap for the city and its residents to make Chicago a healthier, more livable and prosperous place (sample spreads shown below).
The “City in a Garden” contest centers on the belief that graphic design can affect positive change. I strongly believe that and I am honored to be among a distinguished panel of designers, architects, and sustainability professionals chosen to jury the competition.
The contest is a great opportunity for designers of any flavor. Please spread the word to all of your talented friends who might want to participate. Grant money will be awarded to the top submissions in the contest. The call for entries opened on Monday, March 17, and all entries are due by Friday, April 4.
The winning contest designs will be displayed on bus shelters and city information panels throughout the city, serving as public art, enhancing daily life in Chicago, and encouraging residents to live more sustainably.
