Following the success of the 2007 ‘Love Your Earth’ Competition,, The Design Association Japan (DA) and TOBU department store have joined forces to launch ‘Green Earth’, a brand new international design competition. Calling all design professionals, students and enthusiasts, Green Earth is looking for graphic artwork that raises awareness of the environmental issues affecting the planet and provokes positive change.

There are two categories to which you can enter your work in the Green Earth competition. The first is Green: Create a graphic artwork that illustrates the environmental protection and how human beings and nature could coexist in a greener world. The second category is Earth: Give the gift of a greener world at Christmas. Create a graphic artwork that will make this festive time of the year a moment to consider what we can do to help our planet’s survival.

Prizes: The designers of the 5 winning entries will be granted with cash prize awards:

1st prize: ¥500,000 YEN
2nd prize: ¥200,000 YEN
3 x 3rd prize(s): ¥100,000 YEN (each)

As well as the cash prizes, TOBU department store will print a selection of the shortlisted entries on their ‘eco-bags’ and other promotional material, which will be exhibited during Tokyo Designer’s Week 2008 (30 October – 03 November, 2008).

Registration deadline: application registration will be accepted from June 17 through august 26, 2008. Submission of entries: works can be submitted through august 27, 2008.
