The PyeongChang 2018 Organising Committee has launched an open call for the development of art posters for next year’s Paralympic Winter Games.

The posters are aimed to generate public interest and create an opportunity for the cultural potential and artistic values of South Korea to be known on the global stage.

They would promote the Paralympic spirit and mutual understanding by engaging artists from different areas with diverse creative ideas and spreading the message of harmony and communication through the Paralympic Games.

The deadline for submissions is 31 July. Around 10 final works will be selected and announced between August – September.

A committee of around seven members, which is composed of representative experts from the design and art sectors and from related organisations, will evaluate the posters.

More information on the art posters, including rules, templates and a creative brief, can be found on POCOG’s website.
