DSU Graphic Art Students Submit Work to International Contest

Students in professor Linn Nelson's design class have entered their work in an international poster competition called Positive Posters.

The competition provides designers the opportunity to be proactive and involved in shaping social issues including the environment, politics or anything else they believe deserves global attention. Designers are asked to create a poster that focuses on an issue specific to their own country or an international one. The competition is open to all designers including students, professionals and agencies.

There were around 2,700 entries for this year's contest; Nelson's ARTD 282 2-D Design on Computers class submitted around a dozen entries. "The competition gives students in my class an opportunity to apply their knowledge of concept development to a meaningful project," said Nelson. "It also introduced them to design aesthetics and social issues from around the world."

The winners will be announced on November 9th. Posters can be viewed at http://positive-posters.com/posters/
