‘This Is Apartheid’ Poster Contest

Help fight injustice. Help the world understand Israeli apartheid. Itisapartheid.org and the Lajee Center are calling on activists and artists to submit a poster to the “This is Apartheid Poster Contest.”

Art has always been an important part of liberation struggles.  Images inspire and convey concepts beyond words.

Itisapartheid.org and the Lajee Center are sponsoring a competition for artists and graphic designers, who are invited to submit posters on the theme of Israeli Apartheid.

These posters should reflect the nature, realities, and/or consequences of apartheid policies in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. Posters will be judged by a panel of distinguished activists and artists and through internet voting.

The winning entries will be featured in an online poster gallery and disseminated widely on the internet and various other venues. Youth from refugee camps in Gaza and the West Bank will participate in the contest.
