A label is any kind of tag attached to something so as to identify the object or its content. Labeling means naming. It is human instinct to group things with what they are most similar and name them as a whole. We live in a world filled with labels antagonising each other to win our preference. There are labels associated with consumer products and fashion, people voluntarily label themselves in order to have a sense of belonging to a group, but there also labels that people use to categorize others stemming from feelings of racism and xenophobia, political and religious discrimination, etc. What is the role of these labels in your life? How can a label describe the world you live in? Can a label give the infinite set of experiences, beliefs and desires that summarise each human being?

All of the above are just a few of the many ways one can approach this year’s competition theme “Labels”.

The ten best entries will be printed into banners with dimensions 200 x 60 cm and will be hung along Ithaca’s promenade for the entire summer of 2010. Their creators will have free accommodation in Ithaca on the weekend of the exhibition’s opening (July 2010).

Each individual or group may submit up to two posters. In order to enter the competition, each artist has to submit their poster through the competition website. Each piece must have dimensions of 40cm height x 12cm width (15,75’’ height x 4.73’’ width) and must be uploaded as an electronic JPEG file, resolution 360 dpi, maximum file size 10 MB.

Entries can be uploaded until the 21th of May 2010 at
