2017 Recycling Poster Contest: “Voice of the Recycling Industry!”

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) represents approximately 1,300 companies in all 50 states and 34 countries worldwide that process, broker, and consume scrap commodities, including metals, paper, plastics, glass, rubber, electronics, and textiles. ISRI provides education, advocacy, safety and compliance training, and promotes public awareness of the vital role recycling plays in the U.S. economy, global trade, the environment and sustainable development. The scrap recycling industry generates more than $105 billion annually in U.S. economic activity and provides nearly half a million Americans with good jobs. As the international leader in recycling, ISRI is the “Voice of the Recycling Industry”.

Your challenge is to design a poster that highlights ISRI’s role as the “Voice of the Recycling Industry!”

To be considered for entry, your poster submission must include the ISRI logo (download and use this high-resolution version) that includes the ISRI tagline: “Voice of the Recycling Industry™”.

The rest of the poster should focus on your graphical interpretation of ISRI’s role. Use creative imagery to tell the story, and try to avoid any additional words or phrases!

Poster Specifications
Each poster entry must be a two-dimensional, original piece of artwork done on white poster board with dimensions of 28 in. x 22 in. (71 cm x 56 cm). Any art medium may be used (e.g., colored pencils, crayons, or paint); however, computer graphics will not be accepted. Artwork must be hand-drawn by the entrant. Pale colors should not be used because they are too difficult to reprint. Also note that artwork must be flat (e.g., no glued pieces) and able to be scanned. You must take a high-resolution (at least 3072 x 2304 pixels) digital photograph of your poster in order to submit your entry. One way to do this is to place your poster on the floor in a well-lit room and use a digital camera to take the picture from above.
