Welcome Visitor:

July - Poster competition/celebration

Calling all imaginative and talented artists and activists! Could you
or someone you know create a political poster that can stand
alongside the great political posters of the past, and is also
meaningful and relevant to the future?

Jura Books is looking for artists of all ages, styles and levels of
experience to submit entries for a political poster design
competition. The general theme of the poster should be to explore
some aspect of the past 30 years of radical struggle in Sydney,
and/or imagine what you would like the world to look like in 30 years
time. The poster must also celebrate Jura Books in some way - past,
present and/or future, and include our name and website (or street
address) somewhere on the poster.

Jura Books has been operating as a center for social change and
innovation for 30 years, and we currently combine a bookshop,
library, food co-op and organising space. Over the years we have
supported a vast range of political collectives and struggles -
feminist, youth, enviro, art, publishing, workers control, and many
more. (More about our politics on our website.) We have put on hundreds of events,
from film nights and punk gigs to political actions and worker
organising conferences. Jura is also home to one of Australia's best
political poster archives (check out images and a radio story on our website).

The poster design competition is about commemorating this history, and
also building towards an even better future. The entries will be
exhibited at Jura and we will produce 1000 copies of the winning
design. The winner will also receive a book prize pack valued at
$100, as well as the satisfaction of helping a worthwhile cause, and
eternal fame/notoriety. The winning design will also be used to help
promote and raise money to improve Jura and the political poster
