Tides Announces Thirty-Fifth Anniversary Social Justice Poster Design Contest

Tides, a social change nonprofit organization that works to leverage individual and institutional leadership and investment to positively influence local and global communities, is inviting poster designs celebrating the organization’s thirty-fifth anniversary from artists, graphic designers, and anyone in the Tides community. (Self-taught artists and amateur designs are encouraged.)

Submissions can be drawn from any area of Tides’ issue areas, reflect on building community for social change, or offer visions for a more just and sustainable world.

The winning artist will: have his or her design produced in a limited edition print and featured prominently on the Tides Web site; receive a cash prize of $500; be invited to the New York Foundation for the Arts Art and Social Justice Conference in September 2011; be featured in NYFA’s artist spotlight; and be featured in an upcoming Tides Learning Community event.

All finalists in the contest will be featured in the Seed Gallery at the Thoreau Center for Sustainability in San Francisco, and selected entries may appear on the Tides Web site and other publicity materials.
