Anadolu Cam, the glass packaging division of the Turkish Şişecam Group, held a poster design competition in the beginning of 2013. The concept of the competition was “Glass Bottles and a Sustainable Future”, participation was open to third and fourth year Graphic Design students from across Turkey. In total 226 entries were received from 17 universities.
The students were asked to convey and raise awareness that glass packaging is the only packaging material that remains healthy while never losing its quality and is 100% recyclable. Also, the students were prompted to design posters that should remind people that if small daily responsibilities are carried out to enhance sustainability, the future will be healthier.
A jury of Turkey’s leading graphic designers judged the posters. The winners were announced on the 26th April with an award ceremony at one of Istanbul’s famous museums, the Rahmi M.Koç Museum. Aside from the winners, a total of 50 posters were on display until the 13th May at the museum.
And now it’s up to you… We wonder, as a true Friend of Glass, which poster do you like most?
