    The Composting Council Research & Education Foundation (CCREF) is inviting people from all over the world to their call for entries for their annual International Compost Awareness Week Poster Contest.

    International Compost Awareness Week (ICAW) is the largest and most comprehensive education initiative of the compost industry. It is celebrated nationwide and in other countries each year during the first full week of May. The goal of the program is to raise the awareness of the public regarding the benefits of using compost to improve or maintain high-quality soil, to grow healthy plants, reduce the use of fertilizer and pesticides, improve water quality and protect the environment.

    This year's participants are encouraged to submit a design that reflects the theme “Soil Loves Compost”

    The poster must include the words "International Compost Awareness Week, May 3 – 9, 2020" and images of the poster should be based on compost use or address the benefits of recycling organic residuals. Images should demonstrate that compost is not limited to a specific use, but has many uses, especially in relation to healthy soil, which provides many benefits.

    All entries will be reviewed in three different divisions:

    • Grades 3 to 7
    • Grades 8 to 12
    • College students and adults

    Art work is to be submitted in electronic format with a resolution of 300 dpi and in jpg format (poster winner will be requested to resubmit poster at a higher resolution for reproduction purposes). Poster should measure no larger than 12" wide X 17" high and be vertical (portrait) in orientation.

    Entries are limited to one submission per artist.

    There is no entry fee.


    Open worldwide to anyone, age 10 and up, who would like to help celebrate composting and promote the benefits of composting and compost use.


    The Poster Contest Winner will have his/her poster reproduced and distributed nation-wide, featured on the Composting Council Research & Education Foundation’s website, and included on all print material and in any press releases in association with their Annual ICAW Celebration.

    Moreover, the winner will receive a 500 USD prize.
