TAM-TAM in collaboration with the Olympian Committee of Slovenia, Association of Sports Federations announces the eighth PLAKTIVAT competition for designing a city billboard poster on the topic:

TAKE TO RUNNING

The development of modern society and technological revolution allow people to live their lives investing less physical effort in their daily activities than was once the case. This type of lifestyle often has a negative effect on their wellbeing and health and increases the susceptibility to chronic non-infectious diseases, obesity, and psychological issues. 
 
In tackling all of the above, people turn to taking pharmaceutical medications and doing away with consequences rather than “treating” their underlying causes. Meanwhile, there is an effective and completely “natural” treatment on hand in Slovenia – an exceptional countryside that offers the majority of Slovenians a wide array of options for sports activities that have a preventive effect, attainable in close vicinity to their front door. Numerous Slovenians take advantage of this great natural resource; in fact nature hiking and running are two of our most popular sports activities. Yet almost 440 000 Slovenians never take up a sport.  This is why the Olympian Committee of Slovenia, Association of Sports Federations adopted the decision to entice as many of these people as possible out of their chairs and get them to start moving. In spring time, when we feel the most drawn to the outside, the association will launch a communication campaign to incite this 22% of Slovenia’s population that does not practice sports to engage in walking and running in nature.
 
We are unsure as to exactly why people are deterred from more actively participating in sports, but we can assume that the reason is tied to bad habits, mental laziness, technology addiction et sim. (This is without accounting for people impeded by health issues or old age.)
 
THE SUBJECT AND OBJECTIVE OF THE COMPETITION:
The campaign should therefore activate the inactive and, if possible, also challenge them to undertake the Cooper test with the help of the Olympian Committee of Slovenia, Association of Sports Federations app, which is available at www.olympic.si. The creative solution should call or lead to action, rather than merely framing the issue!
 
ELIGIBILITY FOR PARTICIPATION:
Participation is free of charge. The competition is open to all creatives, be it individuals, agencies, or legal entities, who wish to contribute in the creation of their living environment. By submitting their poster to the competition, the authors agree to all the competition's provisions both those stated in the competition documentation and those, which can be inferred. 
 
COMPETITION DOCUMENTACTION:
The creative solution must be designed in the format that fits TAM-TAM city billboards. Be particularly conscious of the fact that the billboards are located in the street and so the posters should be designed with the aim of being noticeable, readable, and communicative among the multitude of visual stimuli encountered in a street environment. Consider the implications of the fact that billboards are typically initially noticed from a distance of a few metres, and only later from closer vicinity – how much text can they carry, how to attract attention, etc.
 
The poster must also be designed in line with PLAKTIVAT's visual identity and include the prescribed logos (appendix: Graphic elements for the competition, instructions for the preparation of files). 
 
The poster must contain the Internet address WWW.OLYMPIC.SI, at which the app for the Cooper test will be made available, along with the mention of the European Week of Sport with the hashtag #BEACTIVE. The size of the script of these two inscriptions with the file format of 27,6 × 40,2 should be at least 17pt (on the actual 5 times larger poster these will be blown up to 85 pt).
 
Enclosed files:
  • Graphic elements for the competition, instructions for the preparation of files,
  • Communication brief for the design of the poster,
  • Rules of procedure for the Jury.
All documentation is available at: http://tam-tam.si/slo/plaktivat.  
 
APPLICATION DOCUMENTATION:
Submitting the designed posters constitutes application to the competition and is only completed by sending an email to plaktivat@tam-tam.si with the subject “Competition – PLAKTIVAT 8 – the poster’s title or code”.
 
Alongside the file containing the print-ready poster (in PDF format – see attachment – instructions – print) the following should be enclosed:

Plaktivat GO!

TAM-TAM in collaboration with UMANOTERA, The Slovenian Foundation for Sustainable Development, publishes the seventh PLAKTIVAT competition for designing a city billboard poster on the topic of ALTERNATIVE TO CONSUMERISM

Consider your most recent purchase: are you a responsible consumer? Excessive consumerism has become our lifestyle, with material goods serving as our status symbols. Only rarely do we ask ourselves where and how these things were produced or manufactured, and we mostly buy things without any consideration or ethics. We have become an atomized society, in which shopping does not require relationships with other people and where individuals can obtain their subsistence independently from the community they live in.
 
Our every purchase impacts the lives of the people and other living beings across the globe, and the condition of the planet. The current international trade system encourages abuse of human rights and leads to ever-greater inequality. A considerable share of the goods we use are manufactured or produced by the world’s poorest people, who work in inhuman conditions. The latest Oxfam* report lists the shocking information that 1% of the population is wealthier than the rest of the global population combined.
 
This awareness calls for realigning our methods of production and consumption, and this coming December of unbridled consumerism and gift giving is an excellent opportunity to reconsider what we really need and what we don’t. What is responsible consumerism, and which are potential alternative methods of obtaining our subsistence, what can we co-use, exchange, reuse or borrow?

*62 people own the same as half the world – Oxfam: http://bit.ly/1Pl0RS7

THE SUBJECT AND OBJECTIVE OF THE COMPETITION:
The campaign aims to promote consideration of excessive consumption, especially during the December gift-giving season, and to encourage the use of alternative means to obtain our subsistence. The creative challenge for those participating is focused on branding alternative means with a positive social image.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE:
Participation in the competition is free of charge. The competition is open to all creators, individuals as well as agencies and companies, who want to help create their living environment. By submitting a work to the competition the artists agree to all of its provisions; i.e. all of those clearly stated in the competition documentation, as well as those which can be presumed.

COMPETITION DOCUMENTATION:
The creative solution must be prepared in a format that fits the TAM-TAM billboards. Especially keep in mind that city billboards are outside, on the street, so design it to make it stand out, be legible, and send a clear message from among the clutter of visual stimulation already cluttering the street. Consider the significance of the fact that we usually first notice city billboards from a few meters away, and only get closer to them later; how much text one can hold, how to draw attention, etc.

The poster must also be in line with PLAKTIVAT’s visual identity, and include PLAKTIVAT’s and Umanotera’s logos in the designated manner (attachments and instructions below). The poster must include a reference to the website www.umanotera.org/alternative, which will showcase types of alternatives to consumerism.
