Yesterday was the deadline for The Ljubljana Poster Award competition – The city of Ljubljana is green for you. Get active, get fit!, organized by The Golden Drum festival, international advertising festival of creativity, and the City of Ljubljana. The aim of the competition is for young creatives under 30 to present Ljubljana on a poster as a city for sports on its numerous green surfaces and to encourage residents and visitors to take part in sports activities in nature. Winner will be announced during Golden Drum festival held in Ljubljana from 18 to 21 October 2016.

Golden Drum, one of the most prestigious European advertising festivals, is after two decades moving from Portorož to the city of Ljubljana. The new host of the festival, the Green Capital of Europe 2016 with over 542 m2 green surfaces per resident, is an original site of creativity, culture, tradition and modernity dotted with pleasant and picturesque places.

The 23rd International Festival of Creativity was welcomed also by the Mayor of Ljubljana, Mr Zoran Janković: “I am pleased that the venue for this year’s festival is moving after 22 years to the most beautiful city in the world – in Ljubljana, at its highest point, Ljubljana Castle, where the view of the city is simply charming. I am confident that participants of the festival will easily find inspiration for their creations, as the city with its friendly inhabitants offers numerous interesting places that are worth exploring. I wish organizers and participants of the Golden Drum Festival a pleasant and creative stay in this year’s Green Capital of Europe 2016, which is the most important award that the city can receive! I am sure that many participants will visit Ljubljana again!”

The city of Ljubljana not only showed its support but also got involved with the festival by inviting creatives under the age of 30 to participate in the Ljubljana Poster Award Contest.
