December 10th | Worldwide Exhibition

Following the tragic terrorist attacks in Paris, poster for tomorrow is more than ever convinced that culture will remain our best mean to help the young generation against the darkness. That is why we are determined to continue our actions and make a contribution to this cause!
Get busy and organise Right to Healthcare exhibition in your city, university, gallery… to show more than ever your solidarity with Paris.
As every year our flagship exhibition will take place in Paris on December 10th during 50 days.

Right to healthcare
Every year 4Tomorrow chooses a basic human right to address. In 2015 it is the universal right to healthcare. Graphic designers from around the world were invited to make posters on this theme – this year the contest received 4980 posters from more than a hundred countries, once again setting a new record.
People don’t have access to the treatment that could save their life even in the world’s wealthiest countries, for financial or logistical reasons. Poster for tomorrow wants to draw attention on this right as it is enshrined in Article 25 of the Declaration of Human Rights. Artists focused on three specific ideas: universal access to healthcare, eradication of immunizable diseases, and access to drinking water.

Right to Healthcare Exhibition: 100 posters, 50 days!
The exhibition of the 100 best posters will take place at the Halle Pajol, in the gallery space of the boutique for tomorrow, Paris. The place was recently extended and we will be happy to receive many more visitors during the 50 days that the exhibition will last, enabling us to engage with the general public with the fight for human rights.

Catalogue
This year and for the 7th year in a row, the best 100 posters will be published in a catalogue in 3 languages that will be launched at the premiere. Designed in a playful and original way, it contains a foreword by Zsuzsanna Jakab, regional director of WHO for Europe. A pre-order page will soon be announced on our website.

Day for Tomorrow
10 December 2015, will be the 5th “Day for Tomorrow”. That day, International Human Rights Day, will see the launch of “Open up” exhibitions around the world.

8 Days To Go!

You have until July 10 to shout your voice to for the Universal Right to Health and Universal access to Healthcare!

It’s the perfect time for us to thank everyone for the enthusiasm, creativity and support that you showed since we released the call for entries,
We would like to give you a few tips about the submission!

Here we go:
1) Submit one poster for each concept you come up and do not make different versions of the same poster concept. In case you plan to submit more than one poster, you may send up to 10 different entries. By different we mean entries with a different idea, not just a different background colour or a different typeface.
2) The format needs to be the vertical. Landscape entries won't be considered - our exhibition and catalogue are designed to fit vertical posters only, sorry for this limitation.
3) The artwork file must be precisely a 2953x4134 pixels wide JPG at 150DPI, otherwise the uploading may fail.
4) Posters must be judged anonymously and posters with a recognizable name on them could be excluded from the competition. So be humble and avoid putting your name on the poster.
5) We don't want to influence the judges in any possible way so we decided that poster entries shouldn't feature any logo. Please don't put any logo, even ours, on your poster.
6) We're awarding only original works designed for this competition only. Please don't send us a poster you designed in the past for a client or for a different competition.
7) Try not to copy your idea from somewhere else! We had many cases of plagiarism spotted by our community in the past. If we don't recognize it, someone else might do it so avoid public shame by having ideas on your own.
8) Give a title to your artwork, plus a  short description!
9) Don’t publish it on internet or you personal social network pages
10) If you have any other doubt or if you have already tried to upload your work without success, we recommend you to take look here

Take a few minutes to connect into your personal page, review it, complete it as much as you can, upload a portrait of yourself.
If you like what we're doing that's the best way to show your love!

Today is World Health Day!

Today, just like every day, almost 800 women will die from preventable complications during childbirth.
They are among the 1 billion people that the World Health Organization estimates that currently lack access to basic health care. Without this healthcare, people run the risk of contracting easily preventable diseases or fall into poverty trying to acces it. This must stop.

This year poster for tomorrow is campaigning for the universal right to healthcare. This is vital as health is the first step in escaping poverty - it’s only when people are healthy that they can go to school or work. Please help us fight inequality and make a poster to add your voice to our call for action!
