How can I enter my design into the competition?
First of all you have to register (for free) on our website. Look for the "SIGN UP" link in the top left corner of the menu bar. When you have an account and you're logged into the website, a "MY ACCOUNT" link page will be available from the top menu bar. Click that link to access your own account page, where you will be able to manage your submissions. Registering is the only way to ensure your artwork will be entered into the competition.
Is there any registration fee?
No. poster for tomorrow is completely, absolutely, 100% free to enter!
We are a team, can we enter too?
Yes, but I'm afraid you'll have to register as individual. One member of your team will have to open an account in his/her own name. When they upload your entries you will be able to add the names of the rest of the team in the submission form.
We are a design studio, can we enter too?
Yes, you're more than welcome to participate, but as a creative team or individual, not as a design studio. So if you're an individual, please enter the contest in your own name. If you're a creative team, please register as normal, then you will be able to add the names of the rest of the team in the submission form when uploading your entries.
How many designs can I enter in the competition?
You can submit up to 10 posters. This limit is for technical reasons more than anything else, but we feel 10 posters is more than enough to give your creativity as much space as it might need.
When does the competition close?
The competition closes on July 10th, 2014. The closing time for submissions is on July the 10th, 2014 (noon pacific daylight time).
What languages is the call for entries available in?
You can see the list of languages in which the call for entries is available in the lefthand column on the home page. A group of volunteers from around the world is helping us to translate it in many other languages, so it might be available very soon. Please come back to check to see if your language becomes available.
