Greenpeace Australia Pacific is hosting a new design award. The aim is to motivate the global creative community to develop visually striking artwork that encourages the public to support Greenpeace and take action on critical environmental issues.

The brief is to design a poster that delivers the message ‘Be a Part of the Action’ – this does not necessarily have to be expressed in words. The poster could bear witness to catastrophic environmental damage and in doing so, cause outrage. Alternatively the poster could actively encourage peaceful protest to expose an environmental problem. Above all, the poster needs to raise awareness of environmental issues and inspire action.

I'd love to take part in this, especially after being inspired by the work over at Designers Against Human Rights Abuses. I just hope I can set aside some time over the following months... if only I had known about this earlier.

    Yeah, I was referring more to wishing I could have worked on this before the school semester started.
