Age discrimination in a poster competition, again
January 18, 2009
Radovan Jenko, graphic designer from Slovenia, has sent me the "Call for entries" for a poster competition in Ljubljana about Climate Change.
He is in the organizing committee of the www.posterfestival-ljubljana.si.
The competition rules exclude participants older than 35 years.

I said it before:
I have written to the organizers and to the institutions endorsing this project and asked them to drop the age restriction. Please do the same if you agree:
