ARCHIVE Institute issues poster design challenge.

The ARCHIVE Institute announced its world-wide call for poster designs from young artists under the age of 18 who want to help raise awareness about relationships between HIV/AIDS, home, housing, and community.

The project, a response to the UNICEF Unite for Children, Unite Against Aids campaign, is motivated by research that has demonstrated the significance of adequate housing as a strategy for improving the health of individuals living with HIV as well as preventing new infections.

"The poster competition is intended to encourage children around the world to use their creative talents to further a social cause," explained Peter Williams, executive director, The ARCHIVE Institute. "Posters that describe the relationship which one or all of these terms--home, housing, community--bear on the spread/control of HIV/AIDS is central to the Institute's goal. We are expecting submissions from around the world."

Educators will be provided with a toolkit that can be accessed from the competition website. A jury of individuals from diverse fields of public health, international development and the visual arts will chose six regional finalists from which three winners will be appointed. Winners will be awarded prizes totaling $1000 in value. A traveling exhibit of selected entries will follow the announcement of all winners in January 2008.

For this project, the ARCHIVE Institute is partnering with the United Nations Human Settlements Programme: UN-HABITAT; the Swami Vivekananda Youth Movement in India; Jamaica AIDS Support For Life; Action for Aids in Singapore; HIV Action Network (HIVAN) in South Africa; and the National AIDS Housing Coalition (NAHC) in the United States.

All participants must be between the ages of 6 and 18. Submissions are due December 1. For more information visit www.archiveinstitute.org./postercompetition.
