culture counts

A piece of exciting news to share today! From over 1187 entries coming from 82 countries, my poster design submission (titled: Interlinking Dialogue) received an Honourable Mention in the UNESCO Culture Counts Poster Competition! Woohoo! As one of the 30 Honourable Mentions, the poster will be displayed online on UNESCO's website as well as printed and used in an exhibition for the International Year of Cultural Diversity, a festival taking place at UNESCO's Paris headquarters in May 2010. Unfortunately, I won't be able to see the exhibit in Paris (due to timing and budget... although I would love to! Who wouldn't mind a venture to France for a holiday)... so might try and send some extended family members who live there to check it out. If you happen to be in Paris mid to late May... check it out!
