Call for Submission – “Kerning for a Cause” Labor Rights Poster Design Competition

The Chicago Chapter of The Architecture Lobby announces its first ever design competition, Kerning for a Cause, beginning August 1, 2016.

Call for submission - “kerning for a cause”

Kerning for a Cause will be open to all architects and designers who self-identify as laborers, to redesign the Federal Labor Laws poster that is legally mandated to hang in any business with employees. The redesigned posters should incorporate openness and transparency into their designs, to better convey the importance of upholding federal labor laws in a formal workplace setting.

On principle The Architecture Lobby does not support unpaid competitions. As a gesture of The Lobby’s beliefs, a small allotment of $5 as well as a physical copy of Asymmetrical Labors will be offered for compensation of entrants’ time.

Entries selected as finalists by jury members of The Architecture Lobby will be printed and displayed at a gallery exhibition in Chicago. One entry will be selected as the overall winner, and its creator will receive a small prize package.

Submissions will be accepted from the start of the competition on August 1, 2016 through Labor Day, September 5, 2016. For complete rules, instructions, and supporting documentation please visit kerningforacause.us
