World Press Freedom Day: speaking out through design
Freedom of information is a fundamental freedom and a human right. Yet in dozens of countries around the world, publications are censored and closed down, while journalists, editors and publishers are harassed, attacked, detained and even murdered. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) received over 180 creative posters for the global competition it launched, and which aimed at highlighting the main theme of the year: ‘Access to Information and Fundamental Freedoms: This Is Your Right!’.
from Jamaica is the designer behind the winning submission. A proposal with an image of speech bubbles in bright colours representing freedom of expression has been selected as the winning design for the visibility campaign of the upcoming World Press Freedom Day 2016. Among the submissions, over twenty proposals were of such high quality that they have received an honourable mention to publicly recognise their exceptional design and hard work. Arabad features a selected few among the shortlisted submissions.
