Important Achievement from EMU Department of Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design Student
Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) Communication Faculty, Department of Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design postgraduate student Arvin Medghalchi has made it into the last 40 of the traditional category of the Posterheroes competition.
Medghalchi made the EMU family proud with the success of his poster that was prepared for the VACD502 Studio Practice-II course delivered by EMU Department of Visual Arts and Visual Communication Design Chair Prof. Dr. Senih Çavuşoğlu. 2125 participants from 108 different countries competed in the competition with posters at the specified dimensions. The annual competition is met with great interest from professional designers, students and people with a passion for graphic design every year.
This year’s theme was “Posterheroes: a poster for integration”. We live in a globalized society, in which all of us come into contact with different cultures, languages and customs on a daily basis. “Contact” can be direct, when different ethnic groups coexist in the same place or interact with one another, or indirect, namely from shopping at the supermarket to using terms borrowed from other languages which have now become everyday communication elements. In the process of integration, words like migrant and host are temporary actors on the same stage, though have different roles; the first must be able to adapt and learn, the second available and open. The migrant begins a new life in an unknown environment, the host must be able to welcome an individual whose history, customs and thought are hardly known to him. In this context, our task should be to promote dialogue, human rights, safeguarding of peace, sustainable development and, last but not least, global citizenship.
Award Ceremony on the 4th of October 2019
