The Mandela Poster Project  (MPP) initiative was founded in order to celebrate Nelson Mandela’s contribution to humanity by creating a poster or series of posters.
The project aimed to collect exceptional posters from around the world and collate them into an online publication and travelling exhibition.
My poster was one of the 95 selected posters.
