The Antigua and Barbuda Bureau of Standards (ABBS) in partnership with the World Standards Cooperation is pleased to announce a design competition where you get to create a poster or video for World Standards Day 2017 under the theme “Standards Make Cities Smarter”.

The winning poster and video will be used as the creative platforms and benchmark to highlight, bring knowledge to and celebrate World Standards Day 2017. The three organizers of the competition, IEC, ISO and ITU, will get together and select the top 10 posters and videos and from there they will be voted for on social media.

The Deadline for poster entries is June 5th, 2017, and the deadline for video entries is August 14th, 2017.
