Last month we published an open call for illustrations in Croatia on the topic:
"The future of Mediterranean coastal cities and their inhabitants".
The text of the call (translated from Croatian):
Climate change is not tomorrow but today, the sea level is rising, slowly but surely. Cities that used to be flooded with tourists might become literally flooded, and even their inhabitants are leaving them…
Are we, as civilisation, prepared for the potential disasters of climate change? Can we adapt and save coastal cities or will they ultimately be lost forever? What will everyday life look like? Can we imagine a world map without destinations like Split, Venice, Barcelona? Without the culture of coastal cities, their heritage, tourist resorts? Is tourism an option in the world of climate change? What will happen to the local population of the Mediterranean?
We are looking for your ideas and we accept all scenarios. Come up with an illustration and send it to us by e-mail along with the title of the work, a short description and a short biography: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 17 with the indication “call for illustrators”.
The best illustrations will be rewarded with 1000 HRK. The works and their authors will be promoted locally and internationally.
Each author has the right to send only one solution. It is preferable that the dimensions of the work are in A3 format (pdf and jpg). For all additional questions, contact us by email.
The idea is to use the best illustrations as an engagement mechanism, to promote the project and reach potential participants of our online game.
As the call is closing in a couple of days, I will be posting here illustrations in order as we are receiving them, with the short description translated to English. If you are interested, help us select the best ones We plan to reward between 3 and 6 illustrations.
