The deadline for The International Reggae Poster Contest has been extended to the 15th of April 2022.
The IRPC which was formed in 2011, is back with another exciting edition and is open to all graphic designers and artists internationally. This year's contest coincides with the contest's 10th anniversary and Jamaica's 60th year of independence. With the theme "Women In Reggae, Music" the contest is honouring and celebrating all women who have and continue to strive to excel in all spheres of the genre in the Jamaican tourism industry.
"We wish to highlight the many roles of women in the Jamaican music industry, such as songwriter, singer, DJ, producer, artist manager, tour manager, booking agent, publicist, and entertainment journalist. The outstanding careers of these women have been central to the development and expansion of Jamaica’s greatest cultural export. We also honour the women whose powerful roles in society as a freedom fighter, cultural activist, and nurturer are documented in Jamaican music."
"We are looking for creative visual expressions that evoke this year’s theme, showcasing women with the energy and vibe for which Jamaican culture is known at home and internationally. We urge you to avoid designing portraits and interpret the theme in other creative ways."
Since its launch, The International Reggae Poster Contest has received more than 1150 posters created by 678 designers from 80 countries. The contest has made it its duty to call attention to social Ills that continue to plague the world through art and design. Last Years Contest theme "Human Trafficking - Shadows After Dark" closed with 2190 entries by 1157 Designers from 70 countries.
