The WFTU Secretariat announces the end of the Poster Competition dedicated to the 70th Anniversary of the WFTU.
We are in the happy position to announce that art projects that have arrived to the WFTU Central Offices from various parts of the world climbed to 79.
The WFTU Secretariat thanks the artists and the trade unionists for their participation to the Poster Competition. We thank them for their inspiration, their creativity, their dedication and their effort to depict in one poster the essence of the 70 years of the militant and internationalist struggle of the WFTU and the role of the class-oriented trade union movement in the struggle for the advance of the working class living and working conditions. A challenging task indeed.
The WFTU with this initiative has aimed to highlight the need for the artist to be inspired by the mass workers movement and with his/her art to inspire and infuse higher qualities and ideals. The artists and the workers struggles, if connected can provide immense feedback to one another and can both produce great results for the working class and for the society.
The winning poster will be announced by the Presidential Council in its Meeting in 6-7 June 2015 in Geneva, Switzerland.
