    Design Museum Boston announces the Green Patriot Posters Student Design Competition to invite Boston-area high school and college students to design their very own Green Patriot Posters-style call to action regarding climate change.

    We are interested in designs that produce an image of strength, optimism, unity and/or urgency in the fight against climate change and drive for energy independence.

    Your design can be general ("We Can Do It"), or it can promote a specific action like riding a bike, changing a light bulb, hang-drying your clothes or purchasing renewable energy from your power company. We are also interested in designs that deal more abstractly with the themes of utopia/dystopia, ecology and/or revolution.

    To prepare your design for upload make the file a jpg no more than 2MB. Make it 8.5” x 11” at 72 dpi RGB (not CMYK). You can make the design different dimensions but then will have to put a border around it for the site to accept the image. Total file size or canvass size for the image needs to be 8.5” x 11”. These specs are for upload only. You may want to consider making a higher res version of your design. If we end up distributing your design we are probably going to want that higher res version.

    There is no entry fee.

    Eligibility


    The Green Patriot Posters Student Design Competition is open to any high school (grades 9-12) or college undergraduate student currently enrolled in the state of Massachusetts (USA). Individual students and student teams are encouraged to submit design entries.

    Prize


    The 3 winning poster designers will each be awarded by a $600 cash prize and the posters will be added to the traveling Green Patriot Posters exhibition, starting at 315 on A in Boston, then heading to Portland, OR, Chicago, IL, and Berkeley, CA.
