POSTERRORISM is an international poster competition against terrorism. Today, a wide range of political organisations use terrorism to advance their goals. From the left, right-wing groups, nationalists, religious groups, revolutionaries, and even the ruling states, they use this as a weapon.
The goal of POSTERRORISM is not just to select superiority, but a hope for finding the best ideas for setting up international plans to counteract the horror of the world, with a lifestyle perspective on peace and peace for the world.
