Create a poster in which you will convey your message in a story enhanced with visual effects by using popular design editing tools like Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe InDesign, Microsoft Publisher, Poster Maker, GIMP, QuarkXPress, and Canva.

Posters have been used for centuries for these purposes, and have been instrumental in transforming and reshaping societies around the world. Whether affirmative or challenging, GISUTECH Olympiad is seeking posters that can inform the public and encourage action or change as well as give new social and political forms of visual shape and an imagined personality.

A GISUTECH poster should motivate to think differently about the things that people may be learning or doing about environment, should aim to create a behavioral change regarding environmental problems (local or global) such as global warming, water (pollution or usage), air pollution or quality, waste management (Reduce, reuse, and recycle), energy, etc.
