We have decided to extend the deadline for POSTER submissions for The Peace Posters until the 21st May. We have received some amazing contributions from Australian and International artists and designers and the publication is already shaping up to be a powerful collection of posters! Many people have been asking for extensions for their designs so we thought we’d open this up to everyone. More details below and attached.
The Peace Posters is going to be a BROADSHEET NEWSPAPER and distributed for FREE. This is a great chance to get a large broadsheet-sized poster (similar to in size to The Age or Sydney Morning Herald) of your artwork printed and distributed widely! If you are interested in distributing the publication through your networks, organisation or on the street please contact us with your details and the amount of copies you would like to receive at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for ARTICLES and POETRY to be included in the publication! Articles on any of the following issues would be great: Peace Building / The Arms Trade / Redirection of Resources Towards a Peaceful Society / Militarisation of Everyday Life / Global Harmony / Human & Environmental Impact of War. Also any up-to-date writing about Australia’s current role in the region and afar would be great to include as well. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to run any ideas past us?
This gives you all another 2 weeks to send in poster designs!

The Peace Posters
We’re putting together another poster series! And this time we’re seeking posters about PEACE.
This is a great chance for designers, artists and writers to work towards creating a peaceful future. Hopefully these posters will end up on bedroom walls, in workplaces, streets, shopfronts and schools!
Artists and designers are encouraged to use writing and statistics from academics, historians, poets, scientists, activists and song writers in their poster designs. We want to see stencils, printmaking, illustration, painting, typography, photography and collage in poster designs. Think handmade.
Wanted: Graphic Artists & Writers
