    The international communication and social graphic art contest Posterheroes has just launched its forth edition. This time Posterheroes proposes a debate on Systemic Food, which aims at investigating the theme of food in its social, environmental and economic nature.

    Economic development and the changes of lifestyle towards a sedentary and urbanised society, led to a radical change in the food habits. This phenomenon, called the nutrition transition, together with the loss of the culinary traditions and the demand for low-cost products has led to a standardization of food and the loss of the concept of quality .

    Today it is necessary to renew the way in which the food theme is addressed starting from our choices. How can the consumer change the food system? What choices the citizens are called to do? These questions are declined in four different aspects, with a common social impact:

    The Challenge Of Biodiversity
    Obesity And Malnutrition
    Emigration And Immigration
    Territorial Interconnected System

    The creative people around the world are therefore called to express their sensitivity and their ideas through the creation of a graphic poster 50x70 at 150dpi (2953x4134 pixels), max 5 MB, vertical layout, jpg or pdf format.

    There is no entry fee.
