World Standards Cooperation has launched a competition to design a poster for World Standards Day 2012. This year the theme is ’Less waste, better results – Standards increase efficiency’.
International standards such as those from IEC, ISO and ITU are crucial for increasing efficiency. This issue has come to the forefront as global challenges like sustainability and financial uncertainty mean that organizations are challenged to achieve better results with less waste.
In today’s highly competitive and complex world, the issue of sustainability, viewed from an economic, environmental and societal perspective means that businesses must be more efficient across a wide range of measures and issues.
International standards are powerful tools for helping organizations capitalize their potential in the global marketplace. Developed by experts from around the world, they contain internationally harmonized best practice which can be used to measure, compare and increase efficiency and reduce waste.
Your poster proposal should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as PDF file, along with a photo and short biography of the artist(s). If your design is selected as a prize winner, you will be asked to supply on a CD:
