ADG-FAD advises on the competition for the graphic image of the National Day of Catalonia

Every 11th September sees the celebration of the National Diada of Catalonia, a day that commemorates the end of the War of Spanish Succession of 1714. Specifically, this date allows the Catalan people to remember a defeat in which they lost their secular freedoms.

For this year’s celebration, the Generalitat Government of Catalonia, through ADG-FAD, has proposed that the graphic image of the event come from a participatory action, thus promoting the creative talent found in the city. That is why it has organised a design competition to choose who will be commissioned to make it. "The ADG-FAD have advised on the drafting of the rules of the project competition so that the key points that we have historically demanded are respected", explained the ADG-FAD coordination department. 

Participations are already being accepted and all design and visual communication professionals who wish to take part can now present their portfolios. Ten finalists will be selected from all the participants, who must present a proposed image for the National Diada of Catalonia 2022 on a posterboard measuring 70x100cm and the idea of application in other formats. A panel of judges comprising members of the Generalitat Government and design professionals will choose the winning proposal.

urthermore, the ADG-FAD values this initiative very positively. "Having an administration that is sensitive to the issue motivates us and is good news for the whole sector in many respects: decent work, dynamisation of Catalan design, bringing design to the public, etc.", they add.

Portfolios can be presented until 3 p.m. on 6 July.
