The selection of the winning entry concluded the 13th international Plaktivat competition, which was centred on the social concept of solidarity.
336 submissions were entered in the competition of which 176 arrived from abroad and 160 from Slovenia. Submissions came from 28 different countries. The expert panel was most convinced by the creative solution “Snežak” – “Snowman” by Peter Zabret, Rok Flego, and Lenart Slabe of the Pristop agency.
Sašo Petek, creative director at Agencija 101 and chairman of the panel described the chosen entry as follows: “The winning poster fits all the criteria of a good poster and simultaneously succeeds in presenting the complex theme of solidarity in an original, simple, and warm way. Its playfulness speaks to all generations and inspires solidarity in all of us.”
This time, TAM-TAM Institute’s Plaktivat action’s aims were to stimulate and strengthen solidarity in society, open a discussion on the fundaments of the values of solidarity, and reflect on the role of solidarity in forming a better society in our future.
Lately, Plaktivat competitions have been receiving an increasing number of student entries, which is why organisers decided that this competition would be the first to include a student category. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for the announcement of the winner in this category.
The first posters promoting solidarity are already on the streets. They will be featured at 500 TAM-TAM poster locations across Slovenia.
The best poster was selected by an expert panel consisting of: Sašo Petek (Agencija 101), Katja Petrin Dornik (Grey), Vasja Grabner (AV studio), Domen Husu (Yin Young), Martina Kokovnik Hakl, Luka Bajs (Grey), Tomaž Drozg (TAM-TAM).
Follow us on our Facebook page, where we will shortly also announce the finalists and winner in the student category.
We thank everyone for the submitted posters and congratulate the winner!
