In 1935 the Agriculture Ministry of Latvia published the guidebook "Grow Hemp" written by R. Ramziņš. This book was meant to be a tool to help people know how to grow, harvest and process the hemp plant. It remains until this day, a powerful guide. Inspired by this guidebook we decided to develop a poster competition with the theme: Grow hemp! Why a poster? (You may wonder...) We believe that a poster is an ideal way of transmitting a lot of information in a few words. Besides its importance as a means of publicity and visual information, the poster has an enormous historical value, especially for the hemp plant. Learn more about the Hemp for Victory campaign.
This said, we are pleased to announce an open call for poster submission on the theme: Grow hemp!
As an effort to educate individuals and boost the general public awareness about hemp the theme of the poster is: Grow hemp! We are looking for creative, critical thought and inspiring posters that can address the following topics:
Legality of the cannabis plant
Uses and benefits of hemp.
The call is open to artists of any age, nationality, and discipline.
All participant's posters will be displayed at the Hemp School gallery and participants will receive a hemp gift from Obelisk Farm.
