Friendship of the peoples of the former union republics; flashy appeals in the spirit of campaign posters of the era of illiteracy and the dry law; touching palm prints in paint and balloons; polar explorer in an embrace with a polar bear and a cosmonaut hovering in weightlessness with a ballot; family walk to the ballot box; a fantastic saga with elements of the will, as if from the cover of the book by Kira Bulychev, and the seals - where without them! At the exhibition "Election Day" - posters of all kinds of styles and moods, most of them - man-made, children's authorship. With the help of modern graphics editors, only a small part has been performed. The contest was launched by the All-Russian People's Front jointly with the Museum of Contemporary History of Russia with the support of the Russian Media Group 26 January. At the end of February, the acceptance of work was completed, and the jury announced the finalists. 






Contestants who are too early to vote are the leaders of the creative race: from schoolchildren and preschoolers came about 4000 works from 6514. The jury selected the top 50 best. How many posters were eliminated because of inconsistency, for example, if a participant portrayed a certain presidential candidate, is not specified.

- It is difficult to assess here, because it is a naive art that does not require an academic approach! Here children draw, and the child feels and shows. That this exhibition is also interesting, that everything went from the heart and it was not necessary to observe the proportions in the image of the same person. Here is a good boy, very kind, he believes more than the one the professional has drawn! A poster is a visual sign that should work for a mass audience. We remember the "Sleaky language of the poster", "The Window of Growth" by Vladimir Mayakovsky. Social changes in civil society, a poster for this matter vividly responds, and fires. Yes, the next day, he probably will not need anyone, but this short life he will live very brightly! - a member of the Union of Russian Artists Sergey Loginov is sure.

The most active participants were the Saratov region (644), the Bryansk region (536) and the Krasnodar region (365). From the Far East, the leaders in the number of submitted works are EAO (79), but two posters of the participants of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug and one from Yakutia made it to the final:

- There were three nominations in total: "Schoolchildren", "Amateurs" and "Professionals". In addition, the nomination "street format" was established, in which the jury selected 20 more laureates. The most popular motives on the posters are the Kremlin, the president, elections, calls to vote, to show civic activity. Actually, we are holding a competition to motivate people to participate in the election campaign, - told EastRussia head of the regional branch of the ONF in the Khabarovsk Territory Yuri Roshka.




The "Day of Elections" was also attended by famous poster artists, for example, Alexei Kurmanaevsky and Sergei Bulkin. As a reward for the winners, participation in the media forum in Moscow and commemorative prizes are considered.
