Israeli Apartheid Week: Poster and Logo Competition

Israeli Apartheid Week: Poster and Logo contest.

To raise awareness of Israeli Apartheid Week, PNN are asking you to submit artwork, posters or logos that you think best befits this international event. The winning piece will have a special feature on our website.

Please submit the piece with a short paragraph of why you think this best represents Israeli Apartheid week. All proposals to be sent by 19th March to:

Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events held in cities and campuses across the globe. The aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.

In an open letter, Palestinian students wrote "we hope you put BDS at the forefront of your campaigns and join together for Israeli Apartheid Week, the pinnacle of action across universities worldwide". In response, organizers across the globe are gearing up for the 8th annual Israeli Apartheid Week in support of Palestinian Civil Society's call for Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS). Last year's IAW was incredibly successful with 97 cities participating.

Events will take place internationally on the following dates:
Europe: February 20 - March 10
Palestine: March 12-19
United States: February 26 - March 3
Canada: March 5-9
Arab World: March 5-11
South Africa: March 5-11
