Okay. Here goes. It is my absolute pleasure to announce that Marc Clancy (@clangaz) from Melbourne, Australia was last Thursday awarded first place in the 2012 Positive Posters competition. Our judges results came back a few weeks earlier and it’s been a tough job keep our mouths shut about it.
Marc’s poster is an perfect example of the kind of design we love and want to see more of. It stands out. It draws you in. It hit’s you with a message, and most importantly, it makes you think and encourages a conversation. The poster needed no description, and the title ‘Homeless’ was perfect.
We all know that we have been and continue to treat our planet poorly and it’s becoming increasingly clear that animals and their environments are being damaged as a result. Marc’s poster has lead me to do some of my own research and think a little more about my own impact on the planet.
For his efforts, Marc will receive a copy of Adobe CS6 and his poster, with your help, will be pasted up around Melbourne, Sydney and Adelaide in the coming months (learn more about how you can help).
I’ll be writing more about this later in the week, but this year we are asking our community to help us fund the distribution of Marc’s poster around Australia. You can read more about it over on a blog post written by Loud&Clear.
Congratulations to everyone who entered this year, and thank you.
