L’Alliance française Chandigarh
in association with
The Festival of Graphic Design of Paris
organises a Graphic Contest to celebrate “the cities of the world”
The winner will have his creation showcased in Paris !
DEADLINE TO PARTICIPATE : 18 AUGUST.
The Festival of Graphic Design, launched by Artevia, is a project entirely dedicated to the promotion of graphic design in all forms and shapes, developed by the Association for the Development, Advancement and Outreach of Graphic Arts (ADPRG).
Building on its 2104 success, the Festival of Graphic Design will inaugurate its Second Edition in Paris (France) in 2015, between mid-January and mid-March.
The Call for Project “Cities of the World” by Alliance Française Foundation and ADPRG
The project is a commission given by Alliance Française Foundation to nearly 800 Alliances in 138 countries worldwide. Each Alliance, locally, is invited to solicit graphic artists or students in graphic design (a local artist who is not of a different nationality) to conceive and to bring to life a creation of their own that celebrates their city.
Aesthetic and political gamble, this original initiative will gather together all creations that will be sent in by different Alliances Françaises and will be the subject of a major exhibition in Paris, in the form of hard copy posters or flags that will be showcased in one of the venues partnering with the Festival of Graphic Design, in Paris. The result will be printed “by the book” by the Festival of Graphic Design’s partners.
Brief of the contest
Conceive and bring to life an original graphic creation whose theme is the city where Alliance Française is present : Chandigarh.
In its own ways, each Alliance Française will invite creators to participate and will select one ultimate creation that will be representing the targeted city.
The final creation shall represent the city from its most diverse angles: architecture, arts, gastronomy, fashion, culture, geography, climate, traditions (Feasts, Carnivals …) and lifestyles.
Every technique is welcome: drawing, painting, collage, photography, typography… being noted though that the final restitution will have to be on a digital file.
No need to be a student of the Alliance française Chandigarh to participate.
