A winner has been chosen for the poster competition launched by UCLG to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the World Organization. The poster from the designer Marcal Prats has won by a majority vote of the jury.
The general public also participated in choosing the winning piece, having voted for the posters that they liked best via the UCLG website. The 5 works that received the most public votes from the online selection were taken into account for the judges' deliberation.
The poster represents two key dates for local and regional governments: the Centenary of the International Municipal Movement that took place in 2013, and the 10th anniversary of the Organization in its current structure as UCLG.
According to the author: "The project submitted makes use of typography alone, which transmits both:
- Action, through the typographic play of words that make up the slogan "100 Years of Action, 10 years of Unity"; and
- Unity, through the superimposition of the letters."
The UCLG World Secretariat would like to express its thanks for the reception this initiative received, and for the participation of everyone who has inspired the ten years of joint action with local and regional governments through their work.
This poster, which includes the slogan "100 years of action, 10 years of unity", will be the image of the commemoration of this anniversary throughout 2014.
The whole World Secretariat team wishes to thank all the participants, the general public, members of the jury, members and partners of UCLG, and all those who have contributed to the success of this first edition.
