We are proud to announce the first international Israeli Apartheid Week poster competition. First launched in Toronto in 2005, Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) has grown to become one of the most important global events in the Palestine solidarity calendar. Last year, more than 35 cities around the world participated in the week’s activities.
The aim of IAW is to contribute to the international opposition to Israeli apartheid and to bolster support for the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) campaign in accordance with the demands outlined in the July 2005 call from Palestine (full statement, including demands).
We are calling on all creative artists/designers to submit poster designs for IAW 2010. The poster will be used internationally to promote IAW and to raise awareness about the BDS campaign.
1. The concept has to reflect its use as a poster – clearly indicating Israeli Apartheid Week 2010 (dates to be added at later stage).
2. The poster must express the politics of IAW
The submission deadline is December 1, 2009
