Well, everybody connected with poster for tomorrow has been busy all year, but now all that effort will finally come to light. The next few days will be a whirl of exhibitions, publications, debates and congratulations.

We begin in Paris on Thursday the 6th of December with the premiere of our Gender Equality Now! Exhibitions at Les Arts Decoratifs. On this day we'll also launch this year's catalogue and announce the designers of the 100 posters featured in the exhibitions and catalogue.

The next big day is December 10th, International Human Rights Day, on which more than 40 exhibitions will open across the world - click for a complete list of what's happening where. These exhibitions are organised by volunteers - five of whom were arrested for doing so in China, Syria and Iran in 2010. The last of these brave people has just been freed, and we would like to pay tribute to the sacrifice they made to stage these exhibitions. This is the reality of the world we live in and makes us even more determined to keep on going.

This year has been our biggest yet - we received the most entries to the competition, we ran the most workshops and we hope to put on the most exhibitions to date as well. This has all been made possible only through the support of everybody - individuals and institutions – who has been kind and generous to dedicate their time and resources to poster for tomorrow. We thank you all from the bottoms of our heart. To this end, we hope you'll all be pleased to hear that this year we have gained the support of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication who recognize and support our activities.

In case you would like to show your support, please consider ordering a copy of Gender Equality Now! catalogue. Thank you so much!

Finally the theme for the next edition of poster for tomorrow will be announced on January 10th 2013. Onwards and upwards!
