Call For Entries

A collaboration of artists and designers from around the world, benefitting victims of the earthquake in Haiti.

Moxie Sozo, the organizer of the 2005 HURRICANE POSTER PROJECT, has teamed up with Josh Higgins, the organizer of the 2007 SO-CAL FIRE POSTER PROJECT to produce the 2010 HAITI POSTER PROJECT.

THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT seeks limited edition sets of posters from artists, designers and design firms from around the world. The donated posters will be sold online to raise money for Doctors Without Borders.

As designers, we have the collective ability to do what we love, AND to create a difference. THE HAITI POSTER PROJECT has been conceived as a collective effort by the design community to unite and effect change through our work. In order for this project to be successful, we are counting on designer participation.
