- Greenpeace Design Awards 2009 finalists exhibition
- Muratovski, Gjoko
- The purpose of Greenpeace Design Awards is to acknowledge the achievements of the most innovative and creative individuals whose work best reflects environmental concerns in a visually striking and iconic way. Entrants will have a chance to bring about real change in society as their work will be considered for use for major Greenpeace Australian Pacific campaigns. In recognition of the excellence in design, the winning entrants will be awarded a unique Greenpeace Design Awards trophy. Historically posters have been inextricably linked with cause-related campaigns. Visually striking, often iconic and frequently iconoclastic, posters grab the attention like no other medium. They effectively help spread a succinct message and in doing so shift attitudes and contribute to significant changes within society. The brief is to design a poster that delivers the message 'Be a Part of the Action'---this does not necessarily have to be expressed in words. The poster could bear witness to catastrophic environmental damage and in doing so, cause outrage. Alternatively the poster could actively encourage peaceful protest to expose an environmental problem. Above all, the poster needs to raise awareness of environmental issues and inspire action.
