An invitation to all creative internet citizens to create The Alphabet of Freenternet.
Exit Festival and the A3 Format group are warmly inviting designers and all other creative citizens to participate in the creation of “The Alphabet of Freenternet“ – a unique book which aim is to graphically and textually explain some of the most important terms concerning the Internet and the freedom of expression.
During the past year we have all been witness to the attempts directed at limiting the Internet’s status as a global place of free communication and the freedom of expression. Its non-existent boundaries are a phenomenon rarely seen in the history.
The Internet made millions, even billions of people more open to the knowledge aquisition and global communications by the access it allows. It democratized the general public, and made fact manipulation harder than ever.
The Internet is still a fresh phenomenon, while still modifying faster than we could ever have imagined. The privileges of the Internet are, sadly, abused by the people engaged in organized crime, spreading ethnic hatred and pedophilia, and in that sense, demands for certain regulations are the logical steps.
However, those who wish to subdue the Internet to personal economic and political interests share the same goal: to present the free communication limitations as advancement to the safety of our lives and our properties. The Internet is rapidly changing, so it is still hard to understand the intentions and the effects of various initiatives for the Internet regulation. Worldwide activists have mobilized in the past year, managing to stop several initiatives, fatal to freedom.
We have chosen 26 terms most often used when discussing Internet and freedom of expression.
The meanings of these terms are often subject of debate. Different uses and abuses of these terms are the basis of various restricting legal decisions, proposed by interest groups.
We are inviting all young and creative Internet citizens to join us with their visual solutions to one of the given terms. A single assigment should graphically present one of the chosen terms.
The best ideas will be printed in the “Alphabet of Freenternet“ publication, which will be handed out to the festival visitors. The competition is open from May 29 to June 20. The assignments should be sent as vector files (AI, PDF, EPS) in A6 format in two colours (black and red) to the address email@example.com. The authors of the selected works will be notified by June 25 and awarded with a ticket to the forthcoming Exit Festival, held from July 12 to 15 in Novi Sad.
