The contest is a supporting event of the ETNO 2012 Soccer Culture Festival, which in turn is a side event of the EURO 2012 Championship, hosted by Poland and Ukraine.
It is open to any and all professional and amateur designers who produce minor designer pieces, preferably (albeit not necessarily): designer toys, mobile device cases, fingerboards, pop-up books, etc.
The collectibles may be inspired by Slavic folk culture, although it’s not a requirement. Your work must however relate in an entertaining and clear way to soccer culture and various rituals in which fans and players engage.
All submitted works will be displayed in May 2012 on the ETNO 2012 website (http://www.etno2012.com) as a virtual gallery. Visitors will then vote for their favorite pieces, as well as have the possibility to purchase them. The awarded works will be displayed in June 2012 as a real-life exhibition at the Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw, situated at a close distance from the stadium at which the EURO 2012 Championship will be concurrently hosted.
The deadline for submissions is May 1, 2012.
The contest is organized by Animation Found, a Polish NGO.
