MEMEFEST PUBLICATION: Friendly competiton 2010-11
You need to allow cookies on our site, to be able to see this video / embeded content.

Unfortunately the news is not that fresh, but is still very relevant!
As some of you might know, we were working on the publication covering Friendly competition 2010-11. We got it from the printer just a day before our travel to Nijmegen where we organized Memefest Workshop. We know it was almost two months ago, but - with a kind of  summer vibe and a lot of other things to solve– we are finally presenting for the worldwide community the publication (at least in a digitalized version).
Inside you can find the selection of best projects and works from this year Friendly Competition, divided by categories (just to refresh your memory – participants could participate in three main categories: Visual communication practice, Critical writing and Beyond).
There are also two intro texts: Demonstrating relevance - by Nikola Janovič  and Love:Conflic:Imgination – by Oliver Vodeb, and a brief insight  into this year project etapes, with description of this year partners organizations.   
A big big thanks to all of you contributing your works! Hope it will serve as an inspiration of critical thinking and acting for everyone!
Some technicals:
Format: A5
Pages: 70
Printed on Offset Cyclus (100% postconsumer recycled paper)
At this certain moment we are trying to spread the printed version all over the globe. You will find it at least spread through our project partners hubs: Loesje in Berlin, Pink Sweater in Nijmegen (Netherlands), Pina (Koper, Slovenia) and Ljubljana – of course. There are some copies also in Brisbane (AUS), etc.

For the impatient ones we uploaded a PDF version on Isuu. Here is the link.

I am a graphic designer from the coast of Slovenia, hungry to amplify MEMES with strong/ethical content.
Right now I am doing a master in Visual communication studies in the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana researching the theme of Ecology in Graphic Design. Otherwise I work as a graphic designer for Studio Poper, a communication studio with strong social engagement, based in Ljubljana.

Some of my design work here:

I have joined the Memfest community becasue i am interested in

When I realized, as a young visual communicator, that we live in a neoliberal absurdness surrounded by ethical crisis, I wanted to involve all my creative energies to projects connected with deep ethical connotation.

In 2003 or 2004 I found out the project called Memefest, which was kind of revelation for me. The content on the website impressed me so much, because there I found a quite big international community of people thinking and creating in the way I wanted to do it.
After all Memefest project was developed in Slovenia, I really loved the concept and I said to myself that it was insane not to try to get involved. At that point I realized that I need to get in contact with the organization. I really wanted to know the team and I was open for absorbing new knowledge.
At the time my anger on visual pollution that commercial visual communication was producing was enormous, and I thought that collaboration with people involved in Memefest community can just help me to make my point of view clearer.

That feeling of anger, now mixed with other feelings, is still here, that`s why I am still a part of Memefest.
