Brief Description

The international competition for a city poster design interpreting the theme “NO EXCUSE” was organised. Communicative action addressed the issue of violence against women, one of the most widespread and hidden forms of human rights violations. 

The object and aim of the competition was to 
(1) reduce the number of victims of partner violence who often do not see a way out and 
(2) to raise the general public’s awareness of the unacceptability of any form of violence against women. 

The poster had to include the Association SOS Help-line helpline number: 080 11 55, which had to form part of the main message. The winning design was announced in mid-November 2018, printed and distributed through 500 TAM-TAM poster sites across Slovenia.
